Harborfreight sells a small saw and blades that runs off an air compressor its perfect for that.
I don't have the part number but it's a saw blade not a wheel.

For small holes I use a hold saw
for larger holes I use a Rotozip
For straight cuts I use a Multi-max
I use a Dremel to sand the edges

you can also use a router or jig saw

Just make sure you use Blue Tape to prevent chipping...
and mark the cut lines well...

Hope this helps...

Hole saw and right angle drill if not enough room for a regular drill.
