Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought years ago Cracking bit of kit. Purchased this weekend for a rewire after going back and forth about getting one. Rewire was on a old Victorian house built from good solid brick. Soon got sick of stitch drilling and knocking out so went and picked one up. Used my battery DeWalt sds drill and within 60 seconds one side of the box was deep enough. Didnt have a Hoover on as power was off at the time but dust and mess wasn't bad and easily swept up. If I get 2 Rewires from one of these I will be happy , expensive upfront cost but will save alot of time on jobs in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Armeg EBS Tri-Cut Circular Cut Having spent over 40 years chasing out boxes with a bolster chisel, lump hammer and drilling I finally took advise from my nephew and purchased the Armeg EBS Tri-Cut Circular Cut also after having read the reviews. So this is my findings. If you are chasing boxes single or double in breeze block then it's fine simple and painless. In normal brick its slightly harder, takes longer than the breeze block but you get good results. In class B engineering brick or the very old hard Victorian bricks you can for get about this tool. It does not even touch it. From what I can see the tungsten carbide tips are not good enough to do the job or need further investigation to make them work. So in all of the above you get a lot of dust and I mean a lot so buy the cover required to collect the dust. So in all its not a bad tool and works fine on breeze block, normal everyday brick. Don't buy it thinking its going to work wonders on engineering brick because IT WILL NOT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Armeg Tri-Cutter This thing eats bricks! Drill a 6mm pilot plus the length of the guide peg and unleash! Buy a full face mask to go with it and seal off the room because this thing will spew dust into places you didn't know existed. I bought the kit in bits and wish I'd got it all together because in the end you do need all of it. Good for back boxes to recessed shower fittings. It is helpful to have a depth guide on your sds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for sinking into brick After attempting to sink a few back boxes into brick with an SDS drill and making holes far messier and bigger than needed I thought there had to be a better way. I came across this tool and thought I'd give it a go. Some recommendations, for brick walls I'd just getting this and a 6mm masonry drill for the pilot hole. I haven't heard anyone having much luck with the box cutters on brick and I didn't end up using the SDS chisel. I picked up a manual scutch chisel (not sold by Screwfix) which makes squaring the corners of the round hole very easy. The tool leaves a very nice flat bottomed hole which is difficult to achieve using other methods. The only time it struggled was when I hit an engineering brick (bad luck), It may have gone through eventually but I didn't want to wreck the tool, it was easier to move the hole over slightly. I'd recommend an angle grinder and diamond cutting disc (sold by Screwfix) to cut the wire channels, this kicks up an immense amount of dust but makes the channels a 5 minute job if finished up with the manual scutch chisel.

Can I use normal hammer drill or it needs to be sds drill?

Asked by: Flipps
The EBS system needs to be used with an SDS drill. All the components have an SDS shank. Also, it's doubtful a normal drill would have the impact energy required for some materials.

Is this the best tool to sink electrical sockets into old solid brick? I hear the square ones only work on softer breezeblock.

Asked by: grounzero
The Tri-Cut is designed to cope with any masonry material so should be fine in your bricks. The square cutters are limited in that they won't cope with the harder masonry materials. In harder materials to form the square after using the Tri-Cut cutter you need to use a chisel (Screwfix code 90956). This is used at tangents to the round hole, taking the corners out to from a square.

How to use

Is the used on hammer action or rotary only?
Asked by: sparkman2
The Tri-Cut circular cutter can be used on hammer action and rotary function. On softer masonry materials (such as 7N block) it can be used on rotary function only. This will give you less hand/arm vibration but progress will be slower when compared with rotary and hammer function used together.
