When it comes to purchasing a Bi-Metal Hole Saw, look no more, the IDEAL line of Bi-metal hole saws is the most flexible and easy to use line in the industry. Effectively cuts through a wide range of materials, from stainless, sheet metal, as well as common non-ferrous materials, such as aluminum, copper, brass, wood, engineered wood, nail embedded wood and plastics.
While traditional Bi-Metal Hole Saws are constructed of M3 material, IDEAL hole saws utilize M42 high-speed steel with an additional 8% of premium cobalt. This provides higher-strength, greater wear resistance and is less prone to chipping. Constructed with its rigid solid steel back plate to provide additional strength eliminating the need for an additional drive plate. Minimizing vibration and extending the life of the hole saw and drill battery life providing an economical longer life experience.

The unique fleem ground tooth design enables more uniform pieces of material to be cut per tooth. Its 4/6 variable pitch geometry cuts down on harmonic noise when cutting through tough metals, which can cause premature stripping of the teeth.

To further simplify the cutting process, the IDEAL line of Bi-Metal hole saws come standard in 1-7/8” cutting depth to provide flexibility for uncommon situations and lesson the cutting time.

The 7/8” to 6” individual hole saws come with a wide slot diamond side which aids in plug removal and provides increased visibility while cutting. In addition, 2” to 6” hole saws come with cats eye openings in the solid back plate, which provides line of sight and also aid in plug removal.

The comprehensive list contains: 49 individual hole saws sizes from 9/16” to 6”, wide array of arbors- with coordinating accessory pilot bits and arbor extension, and three kits custom to tradesman needs. When it comes to quality, performance and durability, IDEAL is the professional’s choice for hole saws.
