3.0 out of 5 stars The product did not preform as well as expected May 26 2014
Verified Purchase
I was introduced to the product by a plumber friend of mine. He showed me how easy he drilled through a 2x10 joist. When I received my set I was very excited to try them out. I need to drill up three floors from the basement furnace room into the attic. I though I would be finished in 5 mins. The first hole went very quick but after that the teeth seemed dull and I had to push harder with lest gain. I stopped to use the blade sharpener as directed but it only improved the time slightly. Still better than my old set of bi mental hole saws but not as great as i expected.

Pros : Nice case, good selection of sizes, easily changed, and works in a cordless drill

con : Cuts only slightly better than bi metal hole saw.

4.0 out of 5 stars the only issue Feb. 19 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a great starter set for any tradesmen. The only place that were milwaukee dropped the ball was placing speed bits in it, instead of regular drill bits. When u try to use these hole saw you are going find that the speed bit will make the hole saw flop around until it grabs. Which will damage the surface you are drilling thru. The best thing to do when you get this set just replace the speed bits with drill bits and you will have an awesome set.

2.0 out of 5 stars Came up a little short. Dec 30 2010
By N. Valentine - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a huge Milwaukee fan and a Professional Electrical Contractor and have put these to the test in the field. I really wanted these to work out but unfortunately they did not. They do not cut a clean hole and can horribly over cut. For example 3 5/8 can and will cut up to almost a 4" hole. The sharpening kit, which I initially thought sounded like a good idea, but now I quickly realized why they include it, you have to use it constantly and way too often. They bits surprisingly burned out beyond sharpening very fast too. Don't even think about using these where you need a clean hole. I'm pretty sure that Milwaukee will end up discontinuing this line due to this fact. Everyone of my employees dislike using these as well. I do however like the 3/8" spade bit arbor (hence the 2 stars). I've taken them out of my work vans and now they sit in the shop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hole saws for wood - limited by poor case design Feb. 19 2010
By Peter Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
I bought one of these kits and was pleased with the overall performance in wood even with 14v cordless drills. The big side gullets help clear the shavings as you drill and the 3 teeth counterbalance each other and cutting is a lot smoother than when using the Lenox One-Tooth hole cutter. The cutting teeth are made from high speed steel so they dull quickly in anything other than soft wood.

Milwaukee provides a tiny diamond file in the case to sharpen the teeth but a longer one will work much faster and keep your fingers away from the teeth. Pilot bit is a wood spade drill and 1/3 of the improved performance of the hole cutter is this drill. Replace it with a twist bit and you will be sorry you did - slower drilling and much harder to get the cut slug out of the hole cutter.

The case looked neat at first but then I realized two defects, one small and one very big. The small defect is not having a place for either a 1/2" hole saw arbor or for a 4-5/8" hole saw (for 4" pipe). The big defect is that the case only holds 8 hole cutters, or 2 per space. The hole cutters with their thick walls and large teeth cannot be stacked the way a bi-metal hole so can and they are two tall to stack more than two in each space in the case. While this is better than the Bosch TCHS and Bosch quick change kits that only take one hole saw per space, it is still a far cry from other hole cutter kit cases, including those from Milwaukee.

You may be able to add a few bi-metal hole saws in the other sizes commonly needed as the smallest Big Hawg that Milwaukee makes is a large 2-1/8 inches. 75% of the hole saw sizes needed for electrical or plumbing work are not available as Big Hawg hole saws which may be why Milwaukee only offers this size case with them.

The RPM guide from Milwaukee recommends a low speed which on most drills is 400-500 RPM. I find that 1000 RPM works much better.

I now leave these in the shop and carry around one of the Blue Boar tungsten carbide hole cutter kits. They are better than the Big Hawg in every respect with their harder teeth, more teeth in most sizes, many more sizes available from 7/8 to 6-1/4, and I can get 50% more hole saws into their case or add the most frequently used sizes to a bi-metal hole saw set.

3.0 out of 5 stars fast cutting in wood May 29 2010
By Bryan Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Pro: cut very fast in wood, good balance with 3 cutting teeth, deeper cutting than any bi-metal hole saw, cut piece comes out easily, sturdy case, uses 5/8-18 arbor with standard 1/4" pilot bits, includes tiny diamond sharpening tool and hex wrench for arbor.

Cons: high speed steel cutting teeth are limited to wood, limited number of sizes with none smaller than 2-1/8 inches, case holds 4-1/4 inch as largest size and 8 hole cutters at most.

Much faster than a bi-metal hole saw in wood and drills can cut twice as big a hole with the same drill. Good hole cutter for use with cordless drills. Vastly superior to Lenox One Tooth but not quite as good as the Blue Boar.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world has two categories, things you need and things you could do without. Jan. 24 2014
By jim - Published on Amazon.com

This is something you need. And you have needed for quite some time. If I added up the boxes of holesaws I have stashed in trucks and on shelves, I bet I would have at least a couple thousand dollars invested. And before these I was investing in landfill material.
You won't believe the difference in a quality holesaw. Honestly.
Ask yourself this, when was the last time I cut myself on a holesaw because it was so sharp. For me that answer is never. Until these. They are that sharp and they stay that way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good choice for large hole drilling. Nov. 25 2013
By Robert J. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this set because I thought it would do a better job cutting large holes compared to the Milwaukee Plumber's boring kit I already own. I should have returned it because I rarely use any of the bits - they are simply too coarse. The standard plumbers bits doe a much better job in terms of hole quality and while not as fast, are easier to use and I use them 90% of the time. I should have saved my money. Not a good choice, at least for me.
