Where to buy holesaws?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have a Black & Decker 3/8" Drill . I went to home depot and other hardware stores but they only have holesaws that cut through wood and tiles. Others would charge $40 for the holesaw. Does anyone know where I can get them cheap online?

Well there are endless amount online, but at stores you can get some Walmart or Target. I know Walmart sells a smaller pack that will cut through metal for cheap and its pretty good actually.

It's hardened, made perfectly to cut metal, and endless hours of R and D are put into it. Think about that next time you purchase a $270 Lian-Li lol.

What size do you need?
Home depot sells 4 1/2" hole saws for ~30USD, and arbors for them for ~12USD, which does total ~40USD. However, McMaster-Carr has them for a little cheaper, but it still won't be like 10USD or something.

The ones that home depot sells are really well for metal as well as acrylic.
If you want cheap holesaws look at harborfreight. They have holesaw sets for 10-20 bucks. but let me warn you. They are made of extremely cheap metal and dont work.

I had one of those but I still went to home depot and spent another 60 bucks for 2 hole saws because the cheapo ones just didnt do the job for me

I will suggest spending the extra cash rather than ruining your mod.

The ones that I listed 2 posts above are high or low quality? Also, will they work with my drill?

The arbor is too small for that hole saw. The arbor you posted is for hole saws up to ~1 1/2" For ones up to 6", you need an arbor like this:

Home depot has the same arbor for ~12USD. Also, Home depot is ~ the same price for a 3 3/8" hole saw. McMaster-Carr is too, but it's arbor is ~10USD. However, you still need to pay for shipping. Therefore, I recommend you go to Home Depot and buy it there.
