We are often subjected to the offerings provided
us by our local suppliers and hardware stores only to wonder if
there isn’t a better product to do the job at hand. This
very thought crossed my mind when I was faced with the limited
option of purchasing another set of contractor grade holesaws,
fully realizing that I would only get a few uses out of it before
it’s quality would start to diminish.
I wanted a good quality product that would
meet my expectations and wouldn’t break the bank at the
same time. Two years later I am still using the same set of holesaws
I originally procured and they are still going strong! Thanks
to the World Wide Web and some resources I happened upon, a partnership
soon developed. Since this product exceeded my expectations it
is with full confidence that we are pleased to introduce a variety
of task specific hole saw styles to meet most any need.
Taming the HW Hole Saw
When a new tool comes along it’s easy to imagine all the
possibilities of something that will reduce time and make a job
easier, especially when it comes to installation tools.
The HW series hole saws delivers on all counts. With its deep
shell configuration you can be assured that no matter what you
are drilling into it won’t become an issue with this ingenious
Easy to be excited just imagining how this device will save
time and energy allowing us to get the job done quicker. We hope
that it will do all required of it with anticipation as well as
apprehension. The trial and tribulations of the tungsten Carbide
HW series was not any exception. I was quite impressed with the
looks of this intimidating tool and was dying to try it out in
a “field” environment.
With its generous shell depth it had the capabilities to perform
on varying material thicknesses in a single pass.
I was poised to
cut into a piece of 2x4 using my Milwaukee 18v cordless drill
and commenced drilling all the while envisioning in my minds eye
a hole of perfect proportions in seconds flat. As with most holesaws
you usually contact the surface you are about to cut then build
up speed while commencing the cutting process.
My drill immediately bound under the load of
The drill frozen in place and the saw bound. I then came to the
realization that the tool with its course design was not meant
to be started in a loaded position.
I attempted a second pass building the saw
up to its full RPM only then to realize that the pilot drill was
drawing the hole saw into the work surface much more rapidly than
I expected. Again the hole saw bogged down but I was able to recover
control over it and in seconds I had my first hole drilled. I
decided at that moment that I would have to change the thought
process while using this type of apparatus. My mind was resolved
that I would have to maintain absolute control of this wild animal.
I tensed up, commenced to apply a second hole, and with great
surprise went through the poplar with little resistance. I thought
that this was the most remarkable tool I had ever encountered
and I was ready to start drilling anything that I came across
that needed a hole.
