Intended for sheet metal but it is a drill bit that does the cutting so plywood or osb it would probably work for.

GREAT FOR PLASTIC
I used this tool to an existing hole in plastic from 3" to !" and it worked great and was easy to use. It made a clean cut with no ragged edges. Highly recommend!

If you work in HVAC chances are you've already used the Malco hole cutters a time or two. They seem to be the industry standard and there are many reasons why. It features a light weight yet durable design (15.2 oz), its easy to use and installs into the chuck of any standard drill as small as a 1/4” (However I've found combining this with a 20v angle drill seems to be the best combination. I’ve personally used these for years and can say they stand the test of time. However keeping extra bits around is always a good idea because just like any drill bit, when used often it wears over time. The tool its self is also fully serviceable and you can replace individual parts if it does fail. Pro’s: Lightweight (15.2oz) Durable Cuts Holes 2”-12” High Speed Bearings Installs In Standard Drill Chucks Made In The USA Cons: Price** This is an expensive tool however the quality justifies the price.

Got to make sure you really wrench your set point bolt. Otherwise it slips and you get an oblong shape. Besides that works great. Tilt at an angle and it slides threw most duct work easily.

Easy to use and provides a good cut. Must ensure you rotate it clockwise; otherwise, you can ruin the cut. Definitely one of my better tools to use.
