Cuts stainless steel sheet relatively well though important always with stainless to use an extremely low RPM, otherwise the stainless steel will temper and become harder as you try to cut it. By extremely low I mean 200 RPM at most and 100 RPM is better.
This particular hole cutter is meant for cutting sheet steel that is 3/16 inch or about 5mm thick. The pilot bit is removable but the diameter is not a common one nor is the length for pilot bits readily available in the USA so a good idea to exercise caution and not take a chance of breaking it.
Most TCT hole cutters like this come in a plastic storage case that includes a hex wrench for the set screw used to secure the pilot bit. Not so with the Champion hole cutters which come in a blister pack so you need to find a box to store the hole cutter and hex wrench when it is not in use.
These are medium grade cutters and are good as a step up from bi-metal hole saws. When working in food plants or hospitals I use the Metal Pro instead as they will mount on the Hole Pro arbor adapter that works with their dust shields.
Blue Boar TCT Metal Pro 1-3/8" (35mm) tungsten carbide hole cutter. Up to 5/16" thick stainless steel, sheet metal, cast iron, aluminum, copper, brass, steel plate, fiberglass, FRP. More holes per dollar than high speed steel or bi-metal hole saws
This product actually performed better than the Greenlee saws of similar sizes, primarily due to the Champion saw has narrower teeth and makes a thinner cut and penetrated the plate faster.
I cut all 42 holes in less than an hour and the teeth cut just as well at hole #42 as at hole #1. I used "Rapid Tap" cutting fluid for the pilot as well as the saw cut and had no overheating issues.
I recommend this saw for anyone cutting stainless steel
We started to use the new Metal Pro tungsten carbide hole cutters from Blue Boar. They cut the same and cost a lot less. Best part is that they use a 1/4 inch pilot bit so spares are easy to find if we break one on the job.
Blue Boar TCT Metal Pro 1-1/4" (32mm) tungsten carbide hole cutter. Up to 5/16" thick stainless steel, sheet metal, cast iron, aluminum, copper, brass, steel plate, fiberglass, FRP. More holes per dollar than high speed steel or bi-metal hole saws
