FWIW, a pic of a drilled thermostat, courtesy Harofreak00. Note that these are large holes ( guess at 1/8"). I would suggest using 1/16" or 3/32" personally.
Note to others. While I and many others here use a drilled thermostat, most of us have made this decision based on our knowledge an proper practice for doing so. If you're thinking of doing so, post and ask questions first so that you can make an informed decision for your case.
