What RPM should be used with the 1-1/2 in. diamond plus hole saw in a drill press ?

Answer

It depends on hat you're drilling. I've used it on a grinder at high speed for drilling granite, and it works very well. Most stuff would be slower. But it all depends on what you're drilling.

Asked by doug November 7, 2020

Answers

Yes, BUT depending on the thickness you are drilling the bit might be destroyed before you make your hole. You do not need a ton of water, easiest way is to use a spray bottle and keep the hole moist or a cup filled with water and dip the bit into it every 20 seconds of drilling, do not force the bit either, light pressure works best. The bits get super hot when going through any stone or hard tile, they need to be cooled, or they will actually get red hot and deform and screw up your hole, plus destroy the bit and possibly your hole.

Can this be used for concrete Belgard pavers?

Asked by Rock September 25, 2020
2
Answers

Yes. Use water to cool the hole saw and a battery powered drill and it should work nicely. If the paver is to thick you might have to drill a pilot and go at it from both sides. Go slow

Answers

It will. I used it to cut through Hardiplank fiber cement siding. Having said that, I don't know how long it will last if using it to make a lot of holes in concrete but it cut the one hole I needed without a problem.

Hi, LB! Thank you for your inquiry with The Home Depot regarding the Milwaukee 1-1/8 in. Diamond Plus Hole Saw. Per Milwaukee, they have recommended the Carbide Hole Saw for your purposes. You can find that by using the search bar above and putting in the following number: 203113627. That will bring you to the 1-1/8" CARBIDE TIP HOLE SAW. I hope this helps. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping with us! -The Home Depot-

Perfect for cutting a hole in a ceramic tile
Was looking for a good quality drill bit for putting a 1in hole in a large ceramic tile for a shower arm. I actually made a 1 1/4 diameter hole. This worked flawlessly. I used light pressure and a dipping can of water to put the bit in after 10 seconds of cutting to cool it. the adjustable retracting pilot bit is excellent at keeping the bit from walking. I was looking for something of quality. When I saw the Milwaukee name, and it mimics the design of high quality core cutting bits, I was all in. I would recommend it for what I did.

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.
