What's special about these carbide hole saws?

  • Includes the SmoothStart™ pilot drill bit which gradually guides the hole saw into place, preventing damage to the carbide tips and limiting unnecessary dulling or wear
  • Carbide teeth are precision-ground for maximum sharpness, allowing you to cut clean, round holes through sheet metal faster and neater than with a standard hole saw
  • Built-in over drill flange prevents the holesaw from completely passing through the sheet metal, eliminating scraped knuckles and damage to the drill or hole

The new TKO™ carbide-tipped hole cutters from IDEAL provide installers with a better way to efficiently cut clean, accurate holes through sheet metal and stainless steel.

When it comes to quality, performance and durability, these carbide-tipped hole cutters are the IDEAL choice for the professional installer. With fine-grained carbide tips and the exclusive SmoothStart™ pilot drill bit and integral arbor, these hole saws outperform the competition in a fraction of the time.

  • SmoothStart™ drill bit is equipped with an ejection spring, which effortlessly releases the slug after drilling each hole, saving you time and labor, especially on larger applications
  • Carbide tips provide lasting sharpness that outperforms HSS cutters and bi-metal hole saws, especially in sheet steel
  • High performance carbide tips and professional grade design ensure that your holes stay accurate, round and clean, even after your 200th hole through stainless steel
  • Available in a full range of sizes from 3/4" to 2-1/2" to accommodate any size job or conduit installation
  • Integral arbor provides increased rigidity to eliminate excess vibration, resulting in a smoother, more accurate hole
