WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF HOLE SAWS?

Hole saw, also called hole saw cutter or hole drilll is ideal for sawing round holes in different types of materials. A hole saw can be used, for example, when recessed boxes or recessed spots need to be mounted in the ceiling.

 

A hole saw is an attachment for making large round holes, larger than possible with a normal drillbit. With a normal drillbit, the material from the hole cuts into sawdust. A hole saw leaves a disc with a hole in the middle. Because the hole is not completely sawdust, making a hole is much faster. In addition, it requires less energy than a drillbit of the same diameter.

What do you need to saw a hole? 

 

You don't need a heavy machine for a hole saw, a drill or a screw drill is enough. Place the quick-change mandrel with centering drill on the drill or screw drill, then attach the required hole saw for the chosen material. It is important that you know in advance what material needs to be processed, in order for you choose the correct hole saw. Ensure that the hole saw is suitable for the required diameter of the holes. We even deliver large hole saws up to 210 mm diameter. Because hole saw are used to make larger hole than regular the machine must be used at a low speed.
