            A:  You bet. Make sure you wear a dust mask & have a vacuum handy. The dust that stuff generates is like talcum powder and makes a mess when cutting, drilling or routing it.

            A:  yup, use a small bit for a guide hole first for the center point of the cutter

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  I don't know. I only used it on wood but its very sharp and I would think if you secured your PVC and drilled slow, it might work ok.

                    A:  Hi Beardedwonder, thank you for your question. This bit is designed to cut wood and not CPVC hope this helps.
