For plaster ceilings that are not too thick this tungsten carbide grit hole saw will cut a clean hole in a short amount of time. This does not have enough cutting depth for use where a layer of sheetrock was put over a plaster ceiling or where there is thick wood lath present. There is still all the plaster dust that gets spun out all over the place and into your eyes and lungs and armpits. It will do a good job with the metal lath.

For general hole cutting in ceilings and walls I prefer to use the Hole Pro adjustable hole cutter as the one cutter adjusts to every size hole I need and the replacement blades are only $18 a pair. The Hole Pro shields catch all the plaster or gypsum dust and this is a big time saver on the job.

Hole Pro X-230 Kit: 1-7/8" to 9" and all fractional sizes in between. Infinitely Adjustable Cutter with Twin Tungsten Carbide Blades needs ¼ drill power of a hole saw to quickly cut Plywood Sheetrock Plaster Fiberglass OSB Plastic MDF Hardie Board

When I do use one of these carbide grit hole saws I still use a Hole Pro shield and use their arbor adapter for hole saws. I can even attach a vacuum if I choose or to meet the new EPA lead paint regulations.

XL-Arbor Kit - Use any hole saw up to 2-1/2" deep and any Hole Pro shield including XL-Shield kit, X and CL Adjustable Hole Cutters. XL Arbor adjusts for cutting depth control and insures perfect straight cuts while ABS Shield captures 100% of dust

Only Elco and Con-tech high hats use a 6 3/8 cutout for installing remodel cans but this hole cutter can be used to make 1/8 inch over sized holes for the Halo H7 and Royal Pacific recessed light cans. Recessed light cans have changed with the new LED and CFL lamps but the hole saw manufacturers seem completely unaware and continue to make the same diameters as they did 10 years ago.

The grit is good for ceramic tile and stucco where the 1" cutting depth (not the 1-3/4" as the seller states) is good enough. Not unusual to find floor tile used on a wall or ceiling where people like the 8" or larger size but the tile is at least three times as hard to cut.

For sheetrock or plaster the Hole Pro X230 double blade hole cutter is cheaper in the long run. I can make the holes exactly the size I need and can cut wood, plaster, sheetrock, cement board, and fiberglass in a flash. The shield is also sweet as it catches all the dust and whatever might be up above the ceiling.

For exterior stucco the carbide grit hole saws are the least bad solution. I was disappointed to find that unlike the product information provided by Amazon this hole saw will only cut through to a depth of barely 1 inch. With stucco the fire code requires 7/8" thickness and sometimes the guys put it on a little heavy. The Greenlee with their 7/8" cut depth are even worse so I now use the Lenox which cost more but will cut 1/2" deeper when mounting exterior lights in stucco.

On most jobs where there is a plaster ceiling I use a Hole Pro adjustable hole cutter with its tungsten carbide blades but when it is an old house where chicken wire mesh was used for the lath I use a carbide hole saw and it has to have a continuous edge as any teeth will catch on the chicken wire and crack the plaster. Unfortunately the plaster is often thicker than the Milwaukee or Greenlee can cut and if a past owner has covered the plaster ceiling with sheetrock then none of these hole cutters will make it all the way through.
