We apologize that our Adjustable Hole Cutter did not perform to your expectations, but our tool is made mainly for HVAC applications which includes sheet metal included 20-gauge galvanized steel. It was not meant to be used with stainless. Please feel free to call Malco Products Customer Service at 800-328-3530 with any questions or concerns you may have about this product. Malco
    Broke 2nd time using it
    Im an HVAC installer. I bought this to make cutting holes in the duct easier and the first time using it the pin in the middle slid and cut the hole too big and the paint on the tool scratched off. The second time using it the nut in the middle just snapped off. The older ones were more quality made but the new ones are just a waste of money. I do not reccomend this product

      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.

          The adjustment (slider) digs into the aluminum and offsets its tightness and then slides and destroys the aluminum handle even more, also throwing off your cut which is a big safety hazard and also makes the install incorrect. To fix, remove the nut and coat the aluminum black sides with a layer of hockey tape or anti-slip threaded tape and when you adjust the screw, undo it by more threads so it's very loose before you retighten very strongly with a sideways flat bar to about 20ft lbs or more. Thanks to the review system email for the reminder that I need to return it. Too expensive, damages easily. Soft aluminum gave out after minimal use. Solid steel desired..

                Worked like a dream. Cut really well, quickly. Was easy to setup and use, and the whole was very smooth and round. What else do you need?
