With removing the spring I needed to hold the plastic bowl with one hand up against the
ceiling panel while cutting. The bowl did catch a lot of the dirt but there was still some
dust puffing out around edges of the bowl where it was up against the ceiling. After checking above the ceiling to make sure your not going to cut into anything close the open panel back up before cutting, that will save some dirt from coming through the open panel. There’s no need to remove the panel you want to cut, for access to the ceiling I opened a panel next to the one I was cutting to mount the speaker in. One set of blades lasted for all 46 cut outs.
I used this with a cordless drill on the low speed setting.
For good results, use a low speed, high torque drill - you won't be disappointed - but it works OK with a cordless drill (although it tends to jam and sometimes damage the hole).
To improve the operation and results of this unit, I have made some improvements:
(1) I drilled 20 ~ 30, 1/16" holes in the clear shield (Upper Wall, All The Way Around) in order to reduce the vacuum
created inside the shield until ceiling hole is cut and air gets in). This reduces jamming of the cutters into the sheet
rock because the cutters get sucked - due to vacuum build up - in and pressed against the ceiling. These tiny holes
I drilled in the clear shield replenish the air and dust which are much more easily sucked inside the vacuum.
(2) I disassembled the unit, took out the marked bar - on which the cutters glide and fasten - grinded the tiny metal
stoppers in order to take the cutters out and use Milwaukee Recessed Light Shallow Hole Saws. This saves tons of
time and frustration every time the cutters have to be readjusted/set. Now I only swap the hole saws, no wasted time
and frustration repositioning and tightening the cutters on the holding bar.
Note: Only shallow, recessed light hole saws (I use Milwaukee) fit in.
(3) The shaft gets jammed inside the plastic shield ball bearing, very annoying trying to work like that. I used drum
grease to make it more responsive (help the shaft move smoothly up and down inside the ball bearing), therefore
giving me better control over the whole cutting process. Next time I will lubricate the shaft/inside ball bearing with
Teflon Spray or Graphite Spray.
I love this tool, it is very reliable, clean and productive.
