Hole SawsA Hole saw is a special drill bit used to cut holes in wood, plastic, and metal. They are designed to cut a hole that is much larger than the diameter of the tool itself. They are used for cutting holes for plumbing pipes, electrical conduit, and cable access holes and for making wooden crafts such as picture frames.The saw consists of a circular blade (usually made from carbide) with teeth on its outer edge that fits snugly into a hole in a matching holder or arbor. When the arbor is mounted onto an electric drill, the blade spins and cuts through material fed against it by an operator.
Pilot Drill BitsBefore inserting a screw or using a hole saw, pilot drills are required. Making a pilot hole will save your wood from splitting when you screw into it. These pilot drills can also serve as arbors for hole saws. This might be a terrific way to remove any issues with your project.An arbor is a device that temporarily secures a hole saw to a power drill to cut circular holes in metal, plastic, or wood. An arbor, also known as a mandrill, is a tool used to cut holes in metal, plastic, and wood with a hole saw and a power drill. The arbor is divided into three sections:The arbor shaft is secured in the power drill's chuck.The arbor is joined to the hole saw by a tiny hole in the hole saw's center back.Screwing the thread at the back of the hole saw to the threaded piece under the central collar secures the saw to the arbor.
