6-7/8 in. Recessed Light Hole Saw is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from We needed the hole saw to cut yellow pine. ... We needed the hole saw to cut yellow pine. It did not work for that purpose. I wish we could have found a saw with teeth. We returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PRODUCT Performed better than expected. Met the need. Easy of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it worked I used this to cut a vent hole through a stucco wall with wire lath and it worked great. Unfortunately I actually needed a 7" hole so I had to open it up a bit with a grinder but that wasn't so bad. I don't understand the 6 7/8" size, must fit some particular can light or something but they should also make this sized for people needing to add a 7" vent. NOTE: This hole saw requires a part that was not included, the part that goes into the drill chuck. I had a Milwaukee hole saw kit already and that had what I needed but if I didn't have that I would have been pretty upset. You buy something thinking you're good to go but then need an additional part, that gets frustrating.
