Hole saw question?
« Reply #10 on: July 21, 2003, 04:28:01 PM »

I use a 9.6V DeWalt drill, and it works fine for cutting through steel.  It'll cut about 3-4 80mm blowholes on a battery charge

I can't imagine why not, as long as you took it slow so as not to melt anything.

No, I used on Friday to cut a 4" hole through a truck bed for a goose neck hitch.  They make them, this one came from Ace hardware.  If you have a high speed drill with lots of power, you can use a wood saw on metal, it may take a couple blades, but it will work.

Metal dulls wood blades, and metal blades have more TPI than wood blades.  It will ruin your blade, but it will cut through.

If you have a lowe's around you, they have a big selection of metal holesaws, rated for 1/4" thick steel, some of them.  Generally metal cutting holesaws have finer teeth and wood ones have coarser teeth.  I've cut a few holes with the ones lowe's sells and they worked fine, though you may want to try to find a drill press for larger holes, because it's a lot harder to keep them straight and such with a hand drill.
