Although there are a lot of ‘pros’ for hole saws, a few ‘cons’ also stand out: the limited variety of sizes, and the high cost of collecting them. The next time you need to drill a 1-9/16“ hole, you can look into Vermont American’s solution — an adjustable hole saw.
You can dial the adjustable hole saw’s four hardened and tempered blades to cut any size hole between 1-1/8” and 2-1/2”. This allows you to cut the right-sized hole in plastic, wood, or composite materials up to 3/4” thick. Another advantage: You can safely use this adjustable hole saw with a drill, because the four blades balance the pressure equally around the cut. The only other option for an adjustable-sized hole is a wing cutter, but you can only use that safely in a drill press.
If you’re looking for a way to avoid carrying a whole hole saw kit, or if you need to drill that perfect-sized hole, you might want one. With street pricing at $15, it could be just the thing.
