my father and i have each flown in several of them and they are fun little planes. not fast or super agile but lots of fun for puting around.

Looks really nice Striker! Those temporary rivets really are great little tools. And for your holesawing, it went like that because you were using a cordless drill. I've had the same thing happen. Pretty much the cordless drills don't have the torque/power/speed the holesaws need and the bit warps around and just kind of smears over the metal. If you have a corded drill swap over to it and try again.
It isn't just cordless drills that have this problem. Very few 1/4" corded drills have enough power to use a hole saw much over 1" in size. A GOOD 3/8" drill is an absolute must for using hole saws 2" or larger and depending on the thickness of the metal a 1/2" is needed for one as big as you were trying to use. One of the main indications of a drill that can handle hole saws for 80mm, 92mm, 120mm, and 140mm (the most common sizes for computer fan holes) is the AMPS of the motor. Anything less than 4 amps is NOT going to provide enough power for a clean cut. Personally I've found a 6 amp to be the minimum I would use.

A drills AMP rating is basically similar to the horsepower/torque rating of your car. A 100hp compact car is fine for carrying a couple of passengers and a load of groceries but I wouldn't want to pull a 35 foot mobile home with one. The more amps the more power the cleaner the cut (within reason).

and is it rated for steel? I've seen some hole saws out there that are only rated to cut wood. Most nowadays are rated to cut steel and wood, but my dad had some older ones only rated to cut wood.

Ah I see. I stand corrected. I've never used a cordless myself that was strong enough to use a holesaw with, regardless of size. That thing must be a monster!

Repo, what makes you think it was a Cordless drill? It looks like a corded Black and Decker to me. I only see the cordless Craftsman drill used with the regular drill bits.
