Effortlessly cut precise holes with a high-quality hole saw
A hole saw is a practical and effective tool for drilling large or deep holes in both wood, plasterboard, PVC-plastic, metal and stainless steel. In any case, hole saws deliver fast and precise cutting.
Why do you need a hole saw?
Sometimes you need to drill a significantly bigger hole than a regular drill bit can handle. It can also be that you need to drill deep holes or enlarge existing holes. For these kinds of jobs, you need a hole saw. The special drill consists of a circular blade with serrated edges and can be made from different materials to handle various surfaces.
A hole saw is especially a smart and practical tool accessory for plumbing jobs or installing electrical cables, such as when you need to drill a hole in the wall to allow plumbing pipes or cables to carry through. But its uses are not limited to these kinds of jobs, and as long as you have the necessary creativity, there are likely no limits to what you can a hole saw for. It is truly a must-have in your toolbox.
Find the perfect hole saw for your needs
As with almost any kind of tool, you need to make a few considerations before you decide on a hole saw. Choosing one that does not properly take care of the task - whether it is about drilling a whole of a certain size or depth or about making a precise, deep cut in the material - is of no use.
Even if you manage to drill a hole, it is not guaranteed that the result will be satisfying. As such, you need to take a closer look at the product details of each alternative to make sure that you select the right hole saw.
Consider the diameter of the drill
It is likely no surprise to you, but the drill size is an essential consideration. The diameter of the whole should align with what you need to put through it or what you want to install inside it. Therefore, always double-check the available millimetres on the hole saw before you proceed to checkout.
Choose a fitting hole saw drill bit for the material
As already briefly touched upon, it is key to select a fitting hole saw drill bit that can cut through the material you are working on. Hole saws work on various materials. They generally cut through wood, plasterboard and various plastics like butter and also work really well for drilling precise holes in metal and steel.
For drilling in tougher surfaces, such as ceramic tiles, porcelain or even stone, you need a diamond hole cutter instead. Lucky for you, we have various types of hole saws to help you take care of almost any job imaginable.
How to drill correctly with a hole saw
Drilling with a hole saw requires a bit of practice and skill. Before you even begin drilling, it is important to select the right drill diameter for the job and use the correct type of hole saw to be able to drill in the material in question. With that in order, you are ready to continue to the next step in the process: the drilling itself. But how do you drill with a hole saw in a way that ensures a great final result? Simply follow these 6 basic steps to drill the perfect large or deep hole:
Use a smaller pilot drill as the central base for your hole saw drilling
Screw the hole saw on the power drill
Align the hole saw’s centre bit with the pilot hole
Brace the drill against your hip for better control and power
Start slowly and then increase the drill speed
If possible, finish the hole from the other side for a precise result
If you need to make an existing hole bigger, you should firstly clamp a space piece of material, such as a small plank of wood, over the hole. Then mark a new centre on the clamped wood piece from where the new hole’s centre point should be. After that, you are ready to drill a pilot hole and follow the rest of the instructions as mentioned above.
