Answer: 
The short answer is NO. It could be used on wood, but there are other saws to do that job. Milwaukee makes a standard hole saw that would work much better for wood that this. The standard saw is about the same price.
If you are cutting wood you want a saw with real teeth. This particular style of saw is impregnated with abrasive material and can not clear wood chips. It would take for ever to cut Read More

Answer: 
I have my doubts. It doesn't have teeth like a conventional saw. The saw edge looks like if your finger was wet and you dipped in sugar, with the sugar granules sticking to your finger. It's very good for ceiling tiles but particle board might be too much for this saw.

Answer: 
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?

Answer: 
In fairness the package does list arbors that are compatible but you have to know to look (and recognize no arbor is included). It uses the speed arbors which I had not seen before and the chap in hardware got me sorted right away when I asked. He did ask if I needed lights ... Before he realized I had three boxes of the contractor packed lights in my cart.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, used for more than just light fixtures... Worked flawlessly for my purpose - through the wall venting of a portable A/C unit. Perfect diameter for exterior venting and duct. June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not cut holes large enough... Cut 6 holes, went to insert cans and they do not fit, hole seems to be to small by about a 1/4 inch all the way around. Trying to make holes bigger takes more time then just cutting all of them by hand. Stupid. Btw no arbor. May 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well Cut perfect holes for recessed light fixtures. Would highly recommend December 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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 ! January 2, 2015
