I used it to cut through a plaster ceiling. 6 holes. It wore down but still did the job. No wire mesh or lathe.

Would it work on drop ceiling tiles or are they not stiff enough?

Asked by LCData1701 March 30, 2019

Answers

Yes. You do not have to push on the tiles with a lot of force. Simply let the bit start the pilot hole and bring the blades into contact with the ceiling tile. The bit and blades will then bore through without you needing to sumo press the tiles.

Yes. This should work on stucco. It will make the blades dull out faster but you can get one to two stucco cuts out of this set before you will have to replace the blades.

Can the quick cut threw plastic vinyl

Asked by Scottlaroc February 12, 2017

Answers

Depends on what type of vinyl. Stretched tight more than likely but might make ragged hole. Its just two thick straight blades on a shaft. Fairly sharp but don't know for sure how the hole would come out. This is made mostly for gypsum wall board or paneling.

Yes, but you may need to be careful if the indentations don't line up for you. Putting electrical tape on each side should help the collars stay in place.

will it cut siding on a house

Asked by cted December 2, 2020

Answers

No, It is not a saw blade. It is strong enough to get through sheet rock, but that is all. You would need to buy a hole saw to get through your siding.

will it cut through PVC ceiling tiles, similar to Genesis Stucco Pro?

Asked by Debbie July 5, 2016

Answers

It will, but not well. The blades are designed to cut drywall. It will most likely not cut the hole as desired.

used to cut hole in wood too
I used this to cut into a 1/2” sheet of mdf board because my local Home Depot didnt have anythjng else in stock. This is mainly uses for sheetrock it says but worked fine for making a 6” inch hole for making my own cornhole board

I tried a different brand like this from another store but the thing kept flying dangerously out of the chuck each time I tried using it. For some reason this Klein tool did not have that same problem (using same drill). Maybe because the bit at the chuck side in the Klein is not round but rather 6-sided. I needed to drill both 6" and 4" holes for Lithonia wafer LEDs and this worked good in shallow space and great in hollow space. I say good in shallow space because if I ran into duct work or trusses, obviously the bit or blades can only go so far. In that case, I had to use a Stanley break-off blade knife to finish the job. If I had to do it again I would have removed the main bit and shortened it slightly, knowing I had ductwork above. But you do need the bit to be at least 1/2 longer than the cutting blades. I drilled small pilot holes in the sheetrock, before using the hole saw, to guide the Klein bit in case of wander. I also did not go wide open with my drill. I used the slow setting. The dust collectors worked fine once I remembered not to tip my drill afterwards. Overall it exceeded my expectations. I fully expected to foul up a hole or two but they all turned out great... and I was able to do both 6" and 4" holes with one saw.

I used it to cut in two 6 1/4" holes for recessed lighting in 5/8" drywall with stippling. It worked flawlessly. It captured all of the dust, leaving no cleanup necessary. There are a few things that I think improve the chance of success: 1. Use a variable speed drill that allows for a slow start, increasing speed moderately as the blades begin to cut in. 2. Attach and use the auxiliary handle to improve stability of the drill 3. Ensure the set screws are tight on both blades 4. Keep the drill perpendicular to the surface (blade bar parallel to the surface) 5. Take your time, don't press too hard, let the blades work - I cut through the 5/8" drywall in probably less than 20 seconds. For under $30, it served its purpose well. It would have been 5 stars if the dimples in the blade bar allowed for 1/4" hole diameters (only allows for 1/2" increments). I did not use a dimple to get a 6 1/4" hole and just tightened the set screw down, hard, which held for my two holes.

OK and versatile for infrequent use. Kind of clunky to use. The plastic packaging is the dust catcher; clever, pretty cheap but it works. Personally I think your money is better spent on a rotozip, or a regular hole saw if you cut a lot (both available at Home Depot). Note that adjustment requires the use of the tiny tiny wrench (pictured), think you'll keep track of that in your tools? )

After doing a lot of research to get a saw for recessed lights, I bought this. First hole was a little mess, but then I figured out how it suppose to be done. Dont press hard when doing a hole, be very gentle and increase the pressure gradually and you will love the saw.

The plastic "shield" rotates with the hole cutter so it does a terrible job of containing the dust. No way to control the depth of the cut so as to not damage insulation or wiring above the ceiling. Put mine in the recycle bin after cutting one hole and bought a Hole Pro T-200 to finish the job. The T-200 cost me $60 but it was worth spending the extra money to get the better tool for the job.

I needed to cut several access holes in living room and kitchen ceilings to provide power to a microwave in the kitchen. After installing the microwave, I was able to install recessed can lights in most of the holes, enhancing the lighting in the living room, which originally had no ceiling lighting. The holes allowed me access to run the circuits from the electrical distribution panel.

Cut 12 holes for recessed lighting. Needed several different size holes so I went with this device. What a time saver! It does just what it is supposed to do. Works great. Some advice on use... make sure you have the cutter level or it will gouge the drywall outside the hole. I'd recommend tightening the cutters every 4 or 5 cuts to make sure the hex nuts are not coming loose. Do not cut too far into the drywall or you will also gouge the drywall outside the hole. Cut into the drywall and then back out a little to see if the cut hole comes down. If not, cut a little more until it does. It's better to remove the cutter complete and see if you are through rather then go too far.
