Questions & Answers

Will it work with a DeWalt Drill?

Will it work with a DeWalt Drill?
Asked by: deepesh
No problem as to the brand of the drill, it is a standard hex bit. Make sure you are using a slow a speed as possible (around 500 RPM will produce the best results).

Will it cut through plastic

Asked by: Thomas
No, only soft material. The blades are only razor blades. It'll cut through drywall, foam, cardboard, paper. Anything hard like wood, will instantly ruin it. Plastic is harder to cut through than wood. For plastic I recommend a traditional hole saw. However plastic the issue is cutting heats the blade, which then melts the plastic rather than cutting it. So use a traditional hole saw, but GO SLOW with it. Let the saw do it's thing. That or use a fine band saw, or drill press.

Is this arbor compatible with the recessed light hole saw? I would like to use the dust catcher along with the hole saw.

Asked by: Keanu
The arbor on this cutter is not compatible with a standard hole saw, but a standard hole saw arbor should be usable with the dust cover.

2 in. to 7 in. Dia. Adjustable Hole Cutter is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 122.

I was looking at hole saws to cut 5.5" holes in our drywall ceiling but this was half the price and had the catch can. To make the catch can better, add a layer of foam weather stripping to the top to make a good seal, especially if you have textured cei.

I needed to cut 10 holes in existing drywall to install some new recessed lighting. It cut the hole perfect set at 6.25" for the 6" can. After 10 cuts the blade was still sharp.

Although it did a decent cutting job, the Quik-Lok arbor would not lock securely to the bit and the cutter kept falling apart while cutting. I cut a few tiles but eventually gave up because I had to reassemble the cutter several times for each cut. In addition, the dust cover has a spring that increased the force on the tile while cutting that distorted the tile and made it difficult to cut all the way through the tile. I returned the cutter and bought a hole saw.

Bought this product instead of a hole saw to drill hole for recessed ceiling lights. Cutters bite into the ceiling, forcing the center drill out of center. After that, you can't drill any longer with the cutters. Had to drill a new center and then successfully cut the hole with a Dremel tool. Poor construction, don't even think of buying this tool!!! Returned it to Home Depot for a refund after not even been able to complete a single hole.

Brought this hole cutter for ceiling fan junction box, it worked beautifully. I did a couple of practice holes on some scrap drywall to get the perfect size hole setting and get the hang of the right pressure to cut through the drywall. I would advise slow and steady works best than applying a lot of muscle. Overall, I would definitely recommend this cutter, five stars!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expected more accuracy from Milwaukee Bought this to put in can lights which required a 6 1/4" hole. I set the tool to 6 1/4" (and yes i made sure both sides were to 6 1/4") and drilled away only to find out that although the tool was set to 6 1/4", the actual hole was 6 1/8" which made it a very tight fit. I did get the lights to fit but not without enlarging the hole with a rasp. Very disappointed.

It wasn't immediately obvious, but it really was simple to set up and use. The result was a very nice wall patch. What was especially good was that the price for this multiple use tool was far less than buying a single bit hole saw.
