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 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
If you install can lights in drywall ceilings, you definitely should have this tool... highly recommended.
As a side note, this saw is made in Taiwan and for some reason is in short supply as of this writing. Ordinarily, you should expect to pay around $40 or so (including shipping) for this tool.
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.
