Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by masterelectricianbill Clean accurate cut
I specifically bought this cutter to use on a PVC work box. I wanted a cleaner hole than a hole saw cuts. Slow as not to heat the plastic and you're all set! I originally tried one that another electrician had on some thicker metal on switchgear. It cuts fast at slower speed as clean as a punch! The spring does pull off if you want to clean any debris out of the cutter.
I was considering the Greenlee but Klein is MADE IN AMERICA!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cblouch Worked well for steel studs
Was remodeling a kitchen and the house had a mix of wood and steel studs. Needed to make some horizontal wiring runs through the steel studs so I bought this to make the holes. Worked well in a regular drill but was much better when I switched to a hammer drill. It was about $25 at the time which, based on the few studs I had to do, it might have been cheaper to just replace the steel studs with wood, but now I have it and it looks like it will last a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grogan14 Put down the knock-out punch!
These Klein carbide cutters are pretty much all I use nowadays for electrical knock-outs in the smaller sizes - other than enlarging a hole, obviously. Being in the trade for almost 30 years, I have been admittedly a little slow to trying new ways of doing things at times, but I'm sure glad I finally got around to purchasing a couple of these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Cut's out 1/2" KO Hole
Needed to install a 1/2" fitting into an electrical box where no KO existed. A bit on the costly side. Drilled through the steel with some ease. Hole was a little oversized, however. The spring around the drill helped to "eject" the cut slug. The center pilot drill keeps everything going true.
