Rated 4 out of 5 by from Significantly reduces dust This hole cutter produces a clean hole with minimal dust when used with care. This tool is easily adjusted to accommodate a variety of hole diameters and locks in place securely for multiple holes of the same dimension. The dust shroud is spring loaded unlike some competing tools which allows consistent pressure against surface being cut for the duration of the cut, thus minimizing dust escaping. Caution is required, particularly when starting a hole to ensure it will have crisp, clean edges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed better than expected - needed to prepare I read some bad reviews that this cuts the drywall badly, and its hard to use. I watched many you-tube videos, and figured a few things out; 1. Must grip the drill machine very well, keep a firm grip. 2. Must use high speed when drilling hole. 3. Must drill in the right direction, reverse drill will cause a mess. When I used these steps, and using the device for the first time, I was able to drill 14 holes in 5 minutes flat, no issues, very little dust, and had great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best solution I could find, worked great! I needed a hole saw to cut 10+ holes for 4" lights, and several for 3" lights. It turns out that hole saws are expensive and come in many sizes that are somewhere around 3 and 4 inches. But some will ble just a bit too tight and some just a bit too loose. Irritating, when you have to spend more than 60 bucks to get them and risk sending them back etc. So I stumbled on a review of the Milwaukie hole cutter and thought it would be the right solution. One YouTube video showed it working pretty well, and one showed it failing. But the guy seemed to be a bit incompetent, so I took the chance. And boy, was that the right call. I cut the first 11 holes (8 in one room and 3 in the other) in record time. It worked perfectly! I even had to deal with four of the lights having resilient channel intrusions acrss the holes. Teo of them are blocked completely. But I pushed harder to let the guide bit go through the aluminum and then stopped as the blades started screaming and the disk seemed to get loose, and sure enough I got all the holes cut. I cannot recommend this highly enough as it works perfectly on any sized hole within its range and it is easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This adjustable hole cutter is amazing. This is by far the best device I have used for cutting in pot lights. It is sharp and gives a clean cut. I like that it doesn't bind and twist your wrists like a hole saw does. Love the fact its adjustable so I only need 1 instead of 2-3 different hole saws when doing lighting work throughout the house. The dust catching bowl is nice as well keeps clean up minimal. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical tool I was looking for an effective tool to cut a few holes in the ceiling I just finished and didn’t want to invest a lot of money in such a tool. This totally fit the bill. It was easy to use and the tray for catching the gyproc dust kept cleanup to a minimum.

Is this recommended for making holes through joists (1 or 2-ply nominal 2") in the basement? what does the lifetime warranty actually cover? must one send back the broken tool for replacement or taking it to HD would work as well?

Asked by: AlbertaSun
You do realize that you shouldn't be making large holes in structural joists? That will weaken them and is a building code violation. The diameter of the hold can't exceed 1/3 of the depth of the joist.

I know this isn’t technically designed for it but could this work for drilling holes in vinyl soffit for 4”,5” and 6” ducts. I find it faster drilling holes in soffit with a hole saw then to mark it out and cut them with snips. Just a thought. 

Asked by: Gavin
Hello, The Milwaukee adjustable hole cutter is designed for applications in drywall and ceiling tiles and would not be recommended for use on vinyl soffit
