2-1/16" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
I needed to cut a hole in a stainless insert in my dashboard to add a new gauge. I heard all the horror stories about work hardening stainless if you don't do a good job cutting. I sharpened a small drill bit and made a pilot hole then used this holesaw to cut the stainless. I also used cutting oil as they recommend. It worked great, no problems whatsoever.
X-230 1-7/8" to 9-1/4" Twin Blade Adjustable Hole Cutter
This tool was definitely the MVP for my recessed lighting install. About a week after I had brand new carpeting installed, I decided to do recessed lighting in my 70yr old PLASTER ceiling (this stuff is like drilling through cement compared to sheetrock). After looking at the overpriced low quality crap for cutting light holes they sell at big box stores, vs my original plan of using a sawzall and making a huge mess, I found this thing. I had to cut about 8 holes in plaster ceiling to mount 6" lighting cans. After the first hole I had this overwhelming sigh of relief and disbelief that there is no way it could be this EASY and CLEAN. Don't even waste money on the vacuum adapter, the bowl catches all the mess and you just dump it into a garbage can/bag. This thing cut 6" holes for recessed lighting cans through 3/4" of plaster in under 20 seconds per hole. It was amazing. Now I am glad I have the tool, I will probably put recessed lights in other rooms now without hesitation. Also includes a really nice blow molded carry case that holds everything. Just make sure you have a cordless drill with a 1/2" chuck, and one that has a selectable transmissions, and you want to run this at low speed (I used a 36V dewalt in first gear approx. 500rpm and it cut FAST, approx. 20sec/hole)
1" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
I need to drill six 1" holes through 1/4" plate steel and this did the job perfectly. I took it kind of slow with plenty of oil and it held up well. Ready for more drilling if ever needed.
2-1/16" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
excellent cutting in all metals that I've used it on
3-5/8" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
We love these hole cutters. Much faster than bi-metal hole saws but we can use them with our regular arbor adapters and extensions when we need to or with the shank that comes with them. These are the only ones that come in sizes for pipe and so we don't have to make a 4" hole with a much slower bi-metal hole saw and the results look a lot more professional.

I get over 100 holes in stainless steel which is remarkable.
2-5/8" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
Only tungsten carbide hole cutters for pipe sizes and good reason for our buying them. Cut faster and last a lot longer than bi-metal hole saws and cost less money in terms of holes per dollar and time per hole which is what we care about.

When we need to have 100% dust and shavings contained we use the Hole Pro shield and arbor adapter kit that works with all of these hole cutters.
Hole Pro Shield Vacuum Adapter
This product saved me the headache of drywall dust all over the room. The first time I was cutting holes in the ceiling with another product the Klein hole saw, it created so much dust in the room even with the dust catcher that I had to wash all the curtains and couch covers. I have kids and it was not good for their health or my wife and I. This Hole Pro shield solved that problem. Other than a few dropping of insulation on the floor, It was more from me trying to fit the cans in the holes, there was no mess at all and not dust in the air.
X-425 1-7/8" to 17" Twin Blade Adjustable Hole Cutter
As a skylight installer, the faster I can get the job done the more money I make. This adjustable hole cutter from Hole Pro saves me time on the job. With the dust shield and its soft rubber edge I get a good seal so shavings don't go all over the place and I don't have to worry about the cut piece falling on something and causing damage. So I don't have to move as much furniture or use drop cloths over everything and I don't need to trace a template circle for the cutout.

The shield also can be used to adjust the depth of the cut so I don't accidentally cut something up in the ceiling including a beam. With the two blades it cuts fast even at lower rpms, and it makes a real clean hole even in plaster ceilings.

It is a very well made tool and the plastic dust shield is light but tough and will hold up on the job. The blades are quick to change if I want to use the high speed steel blades instead of the tungsten carbide ones. Both kinds are included in the case with the hole cutter. I do need to make sure that the three prongs of the drill chuck line up with the 3/8 inch shaft of the hole cutter which has three flattened sides for better grip. The keyless chucks also seem to work better than the ones that need a key and tightening each side of the drill chuck.

I now install 10 inch and 14 inch tubular skylights but if I start to install a different size skylight the hole cutter is quick to adjust to any size tubular skylight being made today up to the 16 inch sizes. I still use a sawzall on the roof but there the debris falls into the attic. Inside the customer's home where I am making the ceiling hole this tool saves me time and customers appreciate that there is less disruption and dust and I am in and out of the job site faster.

Does what its supposed to do without fail.
1" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
Very high quality hole saw. Would definitely recommend.
Tungsten Carbide Blade Set
I get more than 120 holes in drywall and nearly as many holes in Hardi cement board with these blades. With plaster it is more like 30-35 holes but that is still very good.

No way to tell from looking at a tungsten carbide blade how good the carbide is but the results speak for themselves with these Hole Pro blades. They last much much longer than any other carbide hole cutter that I have used.

Hole Pro Shield Vacuum Adapter
Nice addition to the hole cutter. Allows easy attachment to my vacuum.
Blue Boar Master Combo Kit
great deal, holesaws cut holes with impressive speed (i cut 30 1-2" holes in fiberboard in about 10 minutes), customer support is knowledgeable, and the company stands behind its products. the case is really nice. very pleased with this overall.

keep in mind these are CARBIDE holesaws. carbide is resistant to heat--superior for cutting dense material--but brittle. if you want to cut stuff that has nails in it, use bi-metal.!
1-3/4" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
This cut through 3/16 stainless like a standard hole saw will cut aluminum. I like the spring loaded center that spit the cut out piece and saved the typical trying to pry out the scrap from a typical hole say. Use cutting fluid, or at least some wd40 to aid faster cutting and tool life.
7/8" Metal Hole Saw Cutter
We cut hundreds of holes in steel studs and the bi-metal hole saws wear out quickly. After switching to the Greenlee carbide hole cutters things went a lot faster and we were not making frequent runs to the store for more hole saws. I tried one of the Blue Boar Metal Pro hole cutters over the last two weeks and it cuts every bit as good as the Greenlee we have been using.

Extra touch is the use of a 1/4" pilot bit and being able to use the shaft or put the hole cutter on a regular hole saw arbor. Being able to replace a broken bit in the field is easy with a 1/4" pilot bit - Greenlee uses 6mm which is a lot harder to find. With the use of a 7/16" shank hole saw arbor I can use a 5" or 12" extension when I need to make a hole in a spot where the electric drill does not fit.
HSS Blade Set

Great product....extremely sharp!
2-1/16" Carbide Hole Saw Cutter
It is clear that they use quality materials in these hole saws and quite a bit of metal goes into these. The sidewall is twice as thick as a typical hole saw it seems. The teeth are large and welded above the deep gullets, giving the saw incredible ripping ability even at low operator pressure. I think the Blue Boar also represents a good value to a remodeler or contractor, especially when compared to similar sizes in home improvement stores that have less metal, perform worse, wear faster and don't last.

Threaded Hole Saw Arbor for Shield
This makes the Hole Pro kit complete! It's good to be able to use any (most) hole saws with the dust bowl. It works as advertised.
X-425 1-7/8" to 17" Twin Blade Adjustable Hole Cutter
Searched far and wide for a hole saw to cut in 10 recessed lights that were an odd diameter (6 7/8"). Short of having a holesaw custom built for that, To the tune of $350, I was out of luck.

Then I found this. I cut 10 lights into a tongue and groove pine ceiling with no issues and a perfect hole, all 10 times. Once the cut was almost complete it would "jerk" a bit, but that was due to a small cut on the other boards near the primary one to be cut. Minimal dust, and pretty easy to handle.

I have successfully cut 34 recessed lights in my home remodel in the following materials:
Tongue and Groove pine
Drywall
1/4" ply wood
Fiberglass (boats/yachts)
And a combo of bead board over drywall.
3" Stucco Hole Saw Cutter No Arbor
When I ordered this product I wasn't sure that it was the right tool for the job, but when I saw it I cut a 3 inch hole 2 inches deep through stucco with no problem, so I'm very satisfied with this product
1-3/8" Stucco Hole Saw Cutter
I had a bad sub-contractor who failed to follow the plan's specs, so I had to drill about 40 holes through stucco, wire, and metal flashing in order to add additional bolts to my deck posts. This bit came through for me. I don't know how I could have accomplished this task without a quality bit. I recommend it to anyone.
1-5/8" Stucco Hole Saw Cutter
I have used masonry drills on stucco and it is a time consuming process to make lots of little holes, chisel them out without cracking the stucco or brick and then cutting through the plywood behind the stucco using a hole saw. With the Blue Boar stucco bit the tungsten carbide cutting teeth are massive and quickly chew their way through the stucco and keep right on going through the metal lath and through the wood sheathing, all in one pass. Takes one minute to make holes that used to take 30-40 minutes and no risk of damage to the stucco.

These Blue Boar masonry bits also work very well cutting holes in thick plaster, Hardie siding, FRP, and fiberglass. They cut much more quickly and last 20 times as long as a bi-metal hole saw. On one project I was cutting vent holes in fiber cement board and getting 4 holes per each bi-metal hole saw. I switched to the Blue Boar TCT stucco bit and cut dozens of holes in minutes and got the project back on schedule.
