Tips and Tricks

Using the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ products:

 

Plywood is the best to use as a base for cutting, you can also use some 2x1 timber around the outside edge to make a 90° angle or a box to fit your material into.
This will help secure what you intend to cut.
 
This can be used for all applications when using your: drill press, power drill or cordless drill.


The base can be fixed or locked down to secure it from moving from side to side. This is a very safe way of cutting tiles and glass.
   

 

Create a template:

 

This is the Ezi-Cut meathod!
Using external or marine plywood is best, pre-drill your timber using a metal hole saw or a Jigsaw to suit the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ product you need to use.

It's best to cut the hole in your template slightly larger to prevent the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ product Jaming we recommend this be 1 to 1.5mm.

Then simply place your template over the area you wish to cut.
If you wish, you can use Blu-Tack or Puddy above or below your template. This will help retain the water while cutting your material. 
(see Building a dam below)

Note how clean and sharp the finished cut is.

Don't forget! Our Ezi-Cut templates are also available you can find these at your nearest Distributor.

Building a Dam:

Using: Blu-Tack or Puddy is best, this can be used on most surfaces.
Retaining the lubricant will help increase the life of
the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ products. 

 

Next build your dam using blu-tack or puddy.

Its best to use a permanent marker when using water. 
Markout the area you wish to cut
place your Blu-Tack around the area
you want to cut, then you are ready to proceed with the cutting.

 

Use medium speed and low pressure.

Always allow the holesaw to move in and out of the cut as this will help to keep,
the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ products well lubricated and cool during use.
   

 

More Tips & Tricks
Using the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ products:

  • When drilling vertically, wall tiles that are fixed take note of the thickness, you can mark the saw or drill bit.
    Using electrical tape as a depth gauge, this can help prevent you cutting into concrete.
    Use a spray bottle to help assist in keeping the area wet!
  •  Lubrication
    To keep the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ products well lubricated, you can use:
    - Clean water
    - Water with 2% detergent
    - Water based gel
  • Drill speeds:
    Most other drill bits require high speed, some with a hammer action.
    Speeds can vary as some materials are harder than others.
    The rule of thumb is, the harder the material and the larger
    the saw or drill bit that you wish to use, the slower the better, plus a lot of water.
    For the smaller hole saw the same applies. However, if you are cutting a more porous surface you can increase the speed, but keep in mind use plenty of water is required to keep the hole saw cool.
    Use a spray bottle to help assist in keeping the area wet!
  • Material Hardness Scale:
    From 10 to 900.
    Tungsten carbide can be rated to approx, 2000
    However Diamonds are rated to approx, 7000
    Did you know that diamonds are the hardest materials available approximately 70% stronger than tungsten carbide.
  •  Excess speed/pressure will reduce the life of any cutting tool.
    When drilling fixed floor tiles try to gauge the depth. Take your time! Floor tiles can be very hard. Keep the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™
    well lubricated. Use low slow speed and pressure, let 
    the Diamond Coated Hole Saw™ products do the work, as you come closer to cutting through the materail, increase speed this will give a cleaner cut on the exit.
     
    After cutting any material always remove the waste piece.
    If you don’t do this you will cause a lot more friction to the saw or drill bit, you will also find it very difficult to cut a second hole.
    To remove the waste piece remove the hole saw from your drill. 
    Then using a 3” nail or a very fine screw driver, push this through the centre or through side holes downwards.
