Customer Questions & Answers

Can this product be used on wood?

Just trying to cut a 6" hole in 1/2" particle board and not break the bank.
Asked by: Anonymous
it won't go as fast as other 'wood' bits but it will cut through just about anything. if you don't' need to make dozens of holes cut away.

What about metal? Can this product can be used on metal?

Asked by: Anonymous
sheet metal no problem; thick metal, other methods will work better. I would use this to make a small dent and use something else to finish the cut (hackzall for example).

I used to work at HD. They taught us to sell the "whole job". If you buy paint, ask if they need brushes. Why isn't there a link to the proper Arbor?

Asked by: Anonymous
there is a link if you scroll down to the related items, it has the best arbor "quick release". it's wobbly but it is no-tool release and fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool Used this tool to put in 7 recessed lights in a neighbors kitchen. Worked great. No issues at all. Makes perfect holes for 6 Inch recessed lights. I also purchased a cheap plactic plant tray ($1) and then cut a hole in the bottom so the drill bit could fit though it. That way when I drilled the holes the tray caught all the dust. Great Tool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I bought this product to make 6 inch wood circles for a project I was working on. It worked surprisingly well and cut through 3/4 inch pine with ease. It made a smooth cut which made for less sanding to clean up edges. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Holes for Remodel Can Lights! This is not a cheap tool, but worth every penny. Not sure how you perform the task without this gem. The saw is relatively light, considering how big it is. Have cut 13 holes through 1/2 inch sheetrock and the hole saw still looks brand new. Agree with SIRSPENDALOT, go slow for best results. Going slow, you do not even tear the paper on the attic side of the drywall. Suggestion for cleaner operation, in addition to going slow - have a helper hold a trash can lid below the drill, otherwise you spread a lot of drywall dust and insulation around the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome Tool If You're installing extra can lights,put this tool at the top of Your list.Makes perfect holes,and is very easy to control for its size.Glad I bought one !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fantastic tool for recessed lights & more 4 vs 5 stars simply because it has a pilot bit but NO ARBOR in the kit; it's actually $40 not $30, that said, probably worth double that based on this example alone: i drilled a hole in a porcelain tile in less than a minute with this tool; absolutely stunning! Use a 'crumb catcher' there are commercially available ones but i just used the bottom of a bucket with a hole, wrapped some foam tape around the top and not a speck of dust falls when cutting overhead holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hole saw... I needed something to cut holes in drop ceiling to accommodate some LED fixtures that are about the same size as a 6" can light...the drop ceiling tiles are more of a masonite material and this thing did a great job. It would also work well in drywall and thin plywood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saw was OK for the price Saw was OK for the price. Does not have teeth for cutters has chips that seem to burn off as you use it. I had 10 lights to install and the saw was pretty much used up by the end of it. If i had planned on using it beyond this project then i would have gotten a better one. I would recommend if you aren't going to make a lot of holes
