Hole saws kind of suck, which is why annular cutters have become more and more popular in the past couple of years. But regardless of which one you use, they still need a pilot bit or pin and that is a pain. It also means that you can’t always drill a hole if there isn’t a place for that pilot to go. I’ve found that sometimes you can weld a washer in place to be your pilot, but that doesn’t always work and can be a pain in the butt. So what are some other ways to do this better?
In this video from Garage Fab you are going to learn a few cool ways to drill a hole just about anywhere you want, with or without a pilot. Check it out!
Hole saws rely heavily on their pilot bit or centering pin to keep the cutter steady while cutting. But what if your pilot bit breaks or you have nothing to keep the centering pin in place? Here are a few ways I’ve come up with to solve these problems and use hole cutters where some thought it wasn’t possible!
Very nice demo. I hate the pilot type saws… they’re almost always an injury or a ruined job in process..
Thanks for this.
If you needed someone to show you this…you should take up knitting.
