Drywall Circular Saw


Recommended Posts

I need to install a dozen flush ceiling LED lighting fixtures, cutting twelve 6 inch round holes with a handsaw doesn't appeal to me.. so..:
3/16" drill bit goes in center hole as a guide.
ASA/HIPS

Aw c'mon @geert_2, this is Model A.  When he gets to Model L it will have slots to hold the single edge razor blades.  That's what he'll use for the last hole.

Isn't that going to melt? What material are you going to cut? Let us know how it went.

Drywall.    I've used this design before on smaller holes..   just run it kinda slow and let it do the work, it's great and beats the HECK out of cutting with a hand or scroll saw

ASA is super strong.

    Yes, for drywall I can imagine that it would work. I had to look-up the word drywall; here in Belgium it is usually called "gyproc", after a brand name. And everything is better than cutting with a hand saw...   :-)
