Carbide Hole Saws

This is why you should be using hole saws with carbide teeth.

Mark Petersen, Construction Pro Tips’ Senior Editor, is slightly confused: carbide teeth hole saws have been around for a while now and they work way better than regular hole saws. So why aren’t they more popular on jobsites? In this edition of Pro Picks, Mark and Josh Risberg compare a Milwaukee Carbide Teeth Hole Saw to Milwaukee’s standard hole saw and see how fast each blade cuts through a 2×4. Watch the video above to see the results of the comparison and why Milwaukee’s Big Hawg Hole Saws w/ Carbide Teeth are a CPT Pro Pick.
