The Duct hole cutter by Klein is and excellent product. This tool can cut holes in sheet metal from 2" to 12" with a standard drill. The tool is easily adjusted to the desired hole size by using the molded in measuring scale on the tool. This is way easier and more precise than cutting with snips and therefore is a significant boast to productivity when installing a whole house duct system. This tool is primarily for PRO's but a DIYer could easily add a duct run for a basement finish or add an extra duct run to cover a hot or cold spot...if you can run a drill you can use this product. The tool comes with an extra cutting bit. This is a must have product for installing duct work.

I have used other similar brands for exactly the same purpose. This unit excels in every way. The only concern I may have is the red plastic pointer for setting the dimension of the cut. It is pinpoint accurate, but I'd prefer steel. However, you achieve a more precision measurement with the plastic. Time will be the test of durability. The machining of the parts is excellent as you can see in the photos. The cut made was fast and insanely precise. The cutting bit is sharper and holds it's sharpness longer than any other I have used. There are gauges both in metric and English measure. Best of all hands down is the locking device for the diameter of the cut. It is sensational to every other unit I've ever used. With the hex head, you can finger tighten it very easily, and then clamp down on it with a wrench. Also, you can use a flat bar or screwdriver shaft to tighten it with the cross slot if you prefer. Absolutely Love It!

      Worked well for the 10” hole I needed in my duct for a new service line. Good quality tool at a great price. A little challenging in tight quarters, but did the job with little fuss.

      No the tool did not meet my expectations..I am not going to down the whole tool itself, just the cutter bit was the problem.It wouldn't cut through sheet metal.so i switched my cutter bit from my old malco cutter & now it works great!My complaint is with the cheap cutter bit...Needs to come with a better quality bit or you could just buy a malco instead.

      Be aware that as you use this tool the bit dulls rather quickly, and its a specific drill bit. I used this in my basement finish and it was worth its weight in gold. I love having the right tool for the right job. You can cut it in flat tin for any hole up to about 10”. It says 12.5” or whatever but really about 10” is all I could get out of mine for a return. Very good product. Also another tip: don’t mess up the starting hole or your circle will be off. Learned that the hard way. Good tool

        Cutting made made easier for me with this adjustable tool . I can now add additional supply air vents were needed in our commercial locations.Being able to use the same bit to drill the center hole is great, less materials to carry and drop when dealing with high heights. This tool is made in Taiwan . If I would need to replace this tool due to theft or loss, I would buy this same tool again.

        This is a very cool tool. You basically just attach the shaft In the middle to a power drill, cordless or wired, and use that to drill your pivot hole in the center of the hole you intend to cut. Then you insert the shaft at the far end of the tool into the drill chuck, place the pivot thingy into the center hole and turn it as you drill (at a slight angle with the drill pointing toward the direction you are drilling. Cuts very well through sheet metal. Milling bits are easily replaceable. You can adjust up to 12 inches for the hole to be cut. Worked as intended.

        This is the perfect tool for anyone doing duct work. For many years, I used to trace the circle on the duct, then I would drill a hole in it. From that point, I used Tin snips to cut it out. After that I always had to file the cut edge. My holes were decent but never perfect, This tool saved me a whole lot of time and trouble. It can be set by either standard or metric increments. I am going to buy a couple of these to give to my son in laws for Christmas.

        This thing works GREAT!!! I have installed quite a bit of duct, but always did it the old fashioned way, by banging a screwdriver through the tin, then cutting the holes out with snips. NEVER AGAIN! With this tool, cutting a 6" hole takes maybe 45 seconds, and it is always perfect and placed correctly. Got use to it after the first couple of holes, Just sorry I didn't buy one of these years ago.!! Another winner from Home Depot

        I am using this 2 to 12 in. Hole Cutter for Duct and Sheet Metal Work, #89552 by Klein Tools, for AC ducting installation I am working on. This cutter is very well constructed and does a great job. It comes with an extra cutter bit and the allen wrench needed to install it. Once I had the pilot hole drilled, using the cutter bit, and the starter hole, the cutter works quickly and leaves a fairly clean hole. Much claaner and easier than drilling a bunch of small holes around the diameter of the desired size. There is a gauge on each side of the cutter, one in inches and the other side is metric. A great purpose designed and manufactured tool for a specific need from Klein Tools.

        This is a great tool that cuts clean holes in sheet metal. It can make 2 in to 12 in holes in either inch or centimeter graduations. The cuts are clean and precise. The tool has ball bearings so it should last a long time. The cutter set comes with a extra bit and wrench. It is made for 24 gauge sheet metal or 26 gauge stainless steel but I tried it on wood paneling and it worked.
