Customer Questions & Answers

Will it work with a DeWalt Drill?

Will it work with a DeWalt Drill?
Asked by: deepesh
No problem as to the brand of the drill, it is a standard hex bit. Make sure you are using a slow a speed as possible (around 500 RPM will produce the best results).

Will it cut through plastic

Asked by: Thomas
No, only soft material. The blades are only razor blades. It'll cut through drywall, foam, cardboard, paper. Anything hard like wood, will instantly ruin it. Plastic is harder to cut through than wood. For plastic I recommend a traditional hole saw. However plastic the issue is cutting heats the blade, which then melts the plastic rather than cutting it. So use a traditional hole saw, but GO SLOW with it. Let the saw do it's thing. That or use a fine band saw, or drill press.

Will it cut through plywood

Ceiling has plywood above the drywall.
Asked by: cslundy
No, not recommended, only drywall, mine has the same, I cut through the drywall with this tool 4 a perfect circle and less dust, then use either roto zip or oscillating saw for plywood.

Is this arbor compatible with the recessed light hole saw? I would like to use the dust catcher along with the hole saw.

Asked by: Keanu
You may be able to retro fit but be aware it has spring that allows it to move up against the ceiling.

I installed six recessed cans in my sons room. Clean, precise holes. The debris tray is rugged and has a plunge system that lets you control the pressure as you drill. As an extra bonus, I stuck foam weatherstripping around the circumference of the tray for an even tighter seal against the ceiling. Worked perfectly!!

One note. When cutting into drywall with heavy texture, have the drill spinning fast and prepare for a little kickback as it first bites in. Dont use pressure.

My advice would be that if you're going to be cutting more than a dozen holes, invest in a real hole saw. If you've got less than 12 holes to cut, it's faster and safer to just use a drywall knife. You can get a circular knife to score the sheetrock then cut it into quarters like pizza slices then they pop right out. Even though this comes with the dust collector, trust me, you will need to pull out the shop vac no matter what so you might as well save time and money and just use a knife.

Terrible design uses standard drill bit for pilot hole, so the pilot hole likes to creep out and expand to a oval and/or very large hole. When this happens the cutting blades don't stay centered and won't follow the cutting groove, causing the drill to viciously kick out of position. Had to resort to using a manual single blade drywall saw to cut my recessed lighting holes in the ceiling before buying the Klein hole cutting saw instead!

The blades have a hard time cutting/grinding through sheet rock, and only make a trench at best. At the same time the anchor drill hole in the center is drilled right through the first time. And with multiple attempts due to poor job of the blades the drill hole is getting larger and loose its "anchor" position and the blades start warbling. I ended up using a hand saw to complete the work. Not worth the money.

Warning....after just a few holes, saw started vibrating and damaged ceiling. Made a hole much larger than needed. Now I'll have to repair that mess! On examination I saw that one blade had become loose. Also, drill bit for pilot hole wants to walk making it hard to keep blades in existing circle. Bummer!

Worked great for me - cut 3 holes in the ceiling in just a matter of minutes. The debris collection even worked well. Looking forward to using it for future projects. One thing to be aware of - hang on tight to your drill when using.
