Milwaukee provides a tiny diamond file in the case to sharpen the teeth but a longer one will work much faster and keep your fingers away from the teeth. Pilot bit is a wood spade drill and 1/3 of the improved performance of the hole cutter is this drill. Replace it with a twist bit and you will be sorry you did - slower drilling and much harder to get the cut slug out of the hole cutter.
The case looked neat at first but then I realized two defects, one small and one very big. The small defect is not having a place for either a 1/2" hole saw arbor or for a 4-5/8" hole saw (for 4" pipe). The big defect is that the case only holds 8 hole cutters, or 2 per space. The hole cutters with their thick walls and large teeth cannot be stacked the way a bi-metal hole so can and they are two tall to stack more than two in each space in the case. While this is better than the Bosch TCHS and Bosch quick change kits that only take one hole saw per space, it is still a far cry from other hole cutter kit cases, including those from Milwaukee.
You may be able to add a few bi-metal hole saws in the other sizes commonly needed as the smallest Big Hawg that Milwaukee makes is a large 2-1/8 inches. 75% of the hole saw sizes needed for electrical or plumbing work are not available as Big Hawg hole saws which may be why Milwaukee only offers this size case with them.Read more ›
Cons: high speed steel cutting teeth are limited to wood, limited number of sizes with none smaller than 2-1/8 inches, case holds 4-1/4 inch as largest size and 8 hole cutters at most.
Much faster than a bi-metal hole saw in wood and drills can cut twice as big a hole with the same drill. Good hole cutter for use with cordless drills. Vastly superior to Lenox One Tooth but not quite as good as the Blue Boar.
Since the invention of nail guns our bits were doomed. If you hit a nail with these you just keep drilling. There are a few tricks to learn with these.
First thing I do it score the pilot bit with a grinder where the set screw mates with it. Just a few lines. I also lock tight the set screw as well. This solved the problem with a loosening pilot bit. Carry a beater screwdriver for plug removal. Sharpening these is easy, forget the included sharpener, I just use a grinder on the face of each tooth, never the top. Quickly grind until you have a burr, don't over heat, quick and easy. The most common size 2 9/16(for me anyways) just gets replaces more often....they are cheap, who cares. If the plug starts to get tough to remove you need a new pilot bit, but normally I just push a little harder, and use the screwdiver to aid in plug removal. Its just not worth it to me to change pilot bits all the time. Using a standard twist bit generally doesn't work because they are simply too hard and will break off, and as I said, you do have to get a little aggressive with these bits, angling the drill, actually pushing. Hole accuracy has not been a problem.Read more ›
