[Princess Auto] 16 Piece Hole Saw Kit - $9.99

Found this hole saw kit in-store @ Princess Auto for $9.99

Reminds me of this thread: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/home-de ... #p30530756

Except that it has larger sizes, but less incremental in the smaller sizes.

That said this set only does wood and plastic. I hope nobody buys this tool set for professional work on a full time basis. Me personally, I'll probably try to use this set to make some holes for recessed lighting.

Good post, OP. This would be ideal for the guys who are buying the smart locks in the other thread, and may need to resize the hole, while not wanting to spend $100 on a higher end kit.

I've a couple of PA sets and they're surprisingly good for occasional use. Not really deep enough for studs or joists though, just sheet materials.

Got the tsc version of this on boxing day for around the same price (think they had it recently there as well) good enough for drywall and thin sheet stuff but that's about it. Which is what I needed. Didn't think paying 60 bucks for 1 to drill 9 holes was worth it.

Cool. Want to install a bathroom fan sometime this spring, this should do the trick.

For $10 everyone should have this in their shop. I paid $40 or $50 for a Mastercraft set a few years ago, so this isn't for me, but if I had not, I'd buy it for sure.

This +1.

If you're just looking to drill some holes through thin material, you can spend $60 on a single hole saw OR for around that price you can get an oscillating tool which would be much more versatile in the long run. For myself I would be making large holes (5 inch) through drywall. Might be different in other use cases.

But for $10, I wouldn't mind.

I feel like you're better off using a step-bit. I tried using hole saw-bits for the porch ceiling aluminum siding, and it just ripped it apart like a dog went to town on it.

Goodluck trying to resize a door hole with just a hole saw.

You can't cleanly use just a hole saw as there is no centre anchor.

You need a door kit: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... 1000162524

Not true -- lots of ways around it but I think this is the safest way: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/more/enlar ... kset-holes
My original post said "Goodluck trying to resize a door hole with just a hole saw." which still remains true even with your response.

You'll need a clamp, a piece of plywood, or a door installation kit.
