Checklist For Hole Saws

Use
  • You can use a hole saw to saw circular holes in various materials. They are used as an attachment for a drill.
  • Thesize of the hole depends on the diameter of the cylindrical saw blade. It is placed on a suitable mounting plate and attached to the drill. As a rule, 6 to 8 different saw blade sizes can be placed on the plate.
  • To fix it in place, you insert a centering bit in the middle of the mounting plate, which holds the hole saw in place during sawing.
  • Once the hole saw with the right diameter is ready, you can easily drill appropriate holes for, for example, pipes or sockets in wood, plaster, or insulation.
Accessories
  • In the best case, a set of saw blades in different sizes belongs to a hole saw. The diameter can range from 19 mm to 152 mm. The hole depth can also vary and sometimes goes up to 40 mm, but can also be less.
  • The saw blades include one or more mounting plates that hold them in place and attach them to the drill.
  • Also, there should be at least one drill bit for fixing. They are usually around 80 mm long and can be attached to the drill with two different adapters.
  • The smaller adapter provides fixation for saw blades up to 32 mm in diameter and the wider one for all larger variants.
Selection Criteria
  • Of course, it is important for the selection how big and deep the holes you want to saw should be. If you want to use the saw often, for example when renovating or at work, it is advisable to purchase a comprehensive set.
  • When buying, make sure that the drill bits also come with two matching adapters so that you don’t have any problems fixing all blade sizes.
  • In the best case, the saw blades of your hole saw are made of bimetal. With these blades you can even mill holes in soft metal.
