[Home Hardware] 16 piece hole saw set 9.97 (cheaper than Amazon)

Good price. Got a no name one from Amazon for 20$. Kind of regretting my purchase.

These are very useful for cutting holes and what not.

Low quality holesaws are fine for plastic, foam, drywall, thin wood, etc but if you are going to cut anything more than 1/4 wood or if you are going to cut anything frequently, invest in a better set. I would suggest Mastercraft Maxximum Bimetal when the set goes on for 55 as a bare minimum.

This would have been handy if I had them when I installed my pot lights. $10 would be worth it even for a one time use.

If you don't mind asking what type of hole saw(bimetal-wood) did you use when you did your pot lights? Am finishing up my ceiling using mdf board.

I tried the 16 pc hole saw from princess auto but wont drill hole. Lol

Look, I used them multiple times.

1-Drilling holes in a vanity,
2-drilling drywall
3-Drilling holes in a door.

All three went perfectly.

I don’t know how long they will last. But man 10$... you can’t go wrong with it.

I don’t do enough Reno’s to make it worth my while spending 40-50$ For a nice set

I have this exact set too, and have used it quite a bit more.
They do dull quickly and won't cut through thick or particularly hard wood. You'll know when the wood starts to burn while it cuts.

**However... still the best option for 90% of the DIYers out there who will only ever use this set a handful of times. Ideal for drywall!

Disappointed to see they skip 4-1/4" (set includes 4" and 5"), which is the size my LED lights calls for. Fairly common to skip 4-1/4" (probably all the same factory :). Cheapest 4-1/4" I've found is from Harbor Freight (US), U$20 for a set of 3 that includes that size.

I assume for drilling ~20 holes in drywall, this quality would be fine, if only the size was right. OTOH I do realize for 20 holes, paying $42 for a Diablo is still better than trying to freehand cut circles. :)

I used a dremel tool with a drywall bit, I needed to cut 4" holes.
