Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi hole widths made easy I had some led downlights and extractor fans to put in the ceiling so needed 75mm, 100mm and 150mm which is a lot of holesaws to purchase and they aren't cheap. I saw this and read the reviews and whilst some of them did put me off due to the blades supposedly being weak and the ruler gauge being wrong I decided to take the plunge and buy it. I'm glad I did! This tool makes cutting holes in the ceiling such a joy. Yes seriously! No dust and plaster whatsoever on me, it all went into the huge cowl perfectly and the hole cut nicely though you must take it gently at first and don't put too much pressure on it. I've a video I took of my first attempt which I will try and post up if it's possible. Three warnings though: Instructions are basic and rubbish The spring goes on the OUTSIDE of the cowl, not the inside! Ensure you measure from outside of blade edge to centre of drill bit on one side then same on the other then measure width between the two blades to ensure the measurement is what you want rather than relying on the gauge. The blades do look fragile and I've heard replacements are impossible to buy??? My pack came with 2 'spare' ones? which looked good and sharp and pointed, but the two already installed looked deformed and bits welded onto the point, Unless these are for another use??? I'm going to take to screwfix tomorrow and see what they say. Overall if you are a diyer and don't want loads of holesaws and don't need to cut a huge number of holes then I would say absolutely buy this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hole cutter I was told this was in stock but it wasn't so wasted journey to collect it. Got it the following day and the main shaft will not pass through the bearing, too big, so it cannot be assembled. Taking it back tomorrow !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dust reducer Excellent kit, allows you to cut any size and retains most of the dust

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware It's cumbersome but can do the job if you're careful. But if you break a blade (and they break easily) you have to throw the whole thing away. No spares are available - I tried, could even find who makes it.

Is this suitable for cutting wooden wheels for toys

will this give a good enough cut on the inside to give a smooth finish for the wheels (eg Wooden wheel for a toy wheelbarrow)
Asked by: Lemo
You could use this product to cut the wheels, we suggest you cut out a size a couple of millimetres bigger than required and then sand the product down to the correct size.
