Customer Questions & Answers

Will a Lenox 2L arbor fit the Milwaukee 48-56-0303 5 3/8" recessed light hole saw?

If the Lenox 2L arbor will not fit, which Milwaukee arbor(s) will fit the 5 3/8" hole saw? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it will but I think that Lenox has a hollow center where you chuck up I crushed mine with big hole saws. I like the Milwaukee's they have a solid center. Any of the arbors that have the 2 guide pins will work then its wether you have or want a 3/8 or 1/2 chuck.

It cut even, round holes and worked really well. I could not have asked for anything better. The grit cut well in the drywall under the stucco.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not meet my expectations Drilled a nice clean hole but I had to enlarge each hole. My lights were 5" I measured them at 5 1/4 but they would not fit thru hole until I recut with a jig saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For more than recessed lights I needed 5 1/2 inch holes to install speakers in my boat and this worked perfec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable results and quality... You get what you pay for! This is no cheap tool, but it yields amazing results. I used it to cut a 5 3/8" hole in my garage wall for venting a portable NewAir air conditioner hose through a galvanized flapper/dryer vent. This tool went through the stucco, metal mesh, wood and drywall all with a perfectly clean cut. It took steady pressure, and a bit of patience to get through, but the results are perfect. Don't forget to pick up a Milwaukee Arbor bit if you don't already have one. It's not included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too small 5-3/8" is too small for industry standard 5" housings. It needs to be between 5-1/2 and 5-3/4 we needet to enlarge every hole to make fixtures fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to kill hole saw I had used other hole saws against stucco and the results were not pretty. This carbide rimmed hole saw took a long time to grind through a couple 5" stucco holes (the stuff's like cement!) but it still looked/felt like it was ready for many more. Suggestion: forget that old 1/2" drill you have been using and rent a 3/4" drill from Home Depot ($7) for a 4-hour period. It saves your equipment that would burn-out against the stucco anyway. Also - remember the ear-plugs and eye-protection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked perfectly I had to drill for 12 lights, through sheetrock and then 5/4" floorboards that were directly above (it is an old house that has undergone a lot of remodeling), and it never dulled. The fit was perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well in drywall It is one of the only cutters available for five inch cans I have one just like it I use for 6" cans they work well in drywall and a little in lath and plaster but not in wood. I havent been able to find a really good one in 5". This one works well in drywall if thats all you have to do.
