Most hole saws are acceptably sloppy things, given the nature of their job. But this saw's small kerf and teeth/inch left holes so smooth they look like they were cut by a forstner bit. Even in 5mm plywood, there wasn't any shredding or breaking of the top laminate. Wobbling was imperceptible. The shank is 1/4" but the pilot bit is not. Mine was 5/32" The ejection spring was helpful, but the plug still needs to be pried out. The disc it cuts out is 1.2" in diameter. Well-made, but on the expensive side for what it is.

      Poor Quality
      I attempted to use a right angle drill to cut through a metal stud. The stud is only about 1/16 or so thick. The pilot bit broke before I completed a single hole. It broke within 5 seconds of pulling it out of the package. Extremely disappointing!

Please feel free to contact us directly at socialmedia@milwaukeetool.com so we can get this matter resolved as soon as possible for you. Thank You
        wish it was a good tool
        Pilot bit broke on first use. Easy enough to drill a hole with a regular bit and just shove the broken end through the hole. Saw portion works. I like the rim which keeps you from plunging your saw too deep in the new hole. I like the spring which ejects the freshly cut plug. Ill replace the pilot bit, but only once. If i break it again ill just buy something more reliable.

          Poor Quality Control
          These work great when they work but I have bought several that have had a variety of issues. Some come dull out of the box some have had the pilot bits fall apart. The one I am using now came brand new with a dull pilot bit. I spend a lot of tools in a year and have spent too much on shockwave hole saws that don't work. Luckily home depot has exchanged them for me several times.

            I have my weber grilled hooked to a hose connected to my house propane. I decided to put the spare tank under the grill and away from the garage. But the tank hole was where my hose exited. I decided to drill a 1 inch hole in the side of the grill to run the hose and to not disrupt the tank placement. Wow. For such thin metal, it was next to impossible to get solid drill bits through the side. I started with small bits and increased. I went to HD to get a 1 inch solid bit but there were $30 ish. Then I found this and remembered how well they work on door handle holes. This bit is for metal. It drifted at first since I already had a 1/2 inch hole (my bad). But to drill through the grill took maybe 10 seconds. The blade is super sharp and well made. Great product. I touched up the side hole with two inch PVC to keep the edges of the metal away from the gas hose, then painted all with flat black paint. Works great.

            Cuts like hot knife through butter. I needed to drill through an aluminum shifter box on a car to reach linkage parts, and this hole saw went through about 3mm of cast aluminum within seconds. In fact, I inadvertently went right through some stamped steel too. This is worth the money.

            The attached picture is 1.5 holes in through 1/8" steel using a Ridgid Gen5x brushless impact driver. Guess I should have laid off the spinach, since I managed to drill a 7/8" straight through the teeth. I imagine this tool would work great if I put the driver in medium mode and switched to decaf, since the first hole was perfect. I'm also going to try lubricant, since everything got pretty hot. Will buy another and try again.

              Great, verfsatile hole saw!
              I use bi-metal hole saws to cut holes in military ammo cans. The Shockwave Thin Wall Hole Saw works really well for this. It says that you can use an impact driver, but I found the best results using a regular drill/driver. Of course, if you are drilling a wiring panel that will be covered with dry wall, it does not matter much. Just use whatever drill or driver you have handy. But, in my case looks makes a difference, as I will sell these. You can see from the pictures below that using the impact driver left a slightly irregular hole when the impact kicked in. This is not present using the drill/driver. Remember, I used it on a military ammo can, so if you are drilling a circuit panel, I am sure the metal will cut really easy! This is a quality hole saw! It is much better than some other one you may use! The money you pay for this will save you money in the long run.

              I love this hole saw. I believe it's better than the carbide ones. The price is less than a quarter of the Carbide hole saws. They cut faster and can be used with an impact so you don't have to carry an extra drill up on the ladder with you.the holes are cleaner so the connectors fit right.
