CAN THIS CUT HOLES IN CEMENT BOARD SIDING

Asked by DEANO February 21, 2019
5
Answers

Yes, I used it for this exact purpose and it made a clean hole in the fiber cement siding without issue. I am sure this puts a lot of wear on the bit so not sure how many holes you can make before wearing it out.

Can I use this to drill out a larger hole into a porcelain sink?

Asked by Talley January 26, 2018
5
Answers

yes, I would recommend starting the drill in slow speed first before starting into the sink so that the bit does not move around and scratch the sink.

Aquarium glass can sometimes be tempered, and sometimes not. If it's tempered, the glass will shatter, and may injure you. Death is maybe a little extreme though.

I used this Milwaukee 1-3/8 in. Diamond Plus Hole Saw to drill holes for both the shower head and the tube spout. The shower surround was made of some type of very hard plastic with reinforcing and the instructions said to use a diamond hole saw, and this worked great. I hope sometime in the future I'll need it for something else as it's quite pricy for 2 holes, but then again it's $975 less than one plumber wanted to trim out the shower...really! Another two wanted $500...So it's a bargain in my book! LOL. BTW You'll also need to buy Milwaukee's Retractable Starter Bit with Large Arbor For Diamond Plus Hole Saws Model # 49-56-7135 Store SKU #1000043590 (for hole saws larger than 1 1/4") I see in the pics now on the HD website that Milwaukee has changed the back of the hole saw to include access holes for easier clean out, nice...Milwaukee is always improving their tools, which is cool!

I bought this Milwaukee diamond hole saw to drill out a hole for a one hole shower controller. The material I had to drill was a plastic resin shower surround rather than fiberglass, and the instructions said to use a diamond hole saw, & this worked perfectly with no chipping or cracking of the surround. Looking back I really should have used a larger hole saw like a 4", but this actually did work, I just had to make a little cut on either side of the valve with my carbide M18 multi-tool for the screws for the cover plate.

The 1 1/4 inch Milwaukee diamond hole saw with the diamond cut arbor cut through the bathroom tile very easily along with spraying water onto the drill to keep the heat down. Only took a few minutes to drill the holes. I was then able to install the wingits plates to install the tub grab bar. Worked like a charm. Thank you.

Bought this to drill a hole through our sink to fit the supply lines of our new faucet after duliing a wood hole saw bit. Thought the sink was porcelain when we got this but found out it was cast iron after the hole was drilled so it worked super well. Be aware that you need to buy an arbor bit to attach this to your impact driver as this product doesn't come with it.
