The material any holesaw is made from is the key component when it comes to how fast and how accurate it'll cut holes for you. It's as simple as that.

Starrett has engineered these new Fast Cut holesaws using a new tooth material with extra cobalt, for enhanced heat and wear resistance. In addition to the new tooth material, the design of the new holesaws benefits from a 5.5TPI positive rake tooth design.

Why Should Plumbers Buy the Starrett KFC07021 Kit?

In the case you'll find 7 holesaws ranging in size from 19mm (3/4") to 57mm (2 1/4"). These are all ideal for cutting into stainless steel and mild steel sheet up to 3mm thick. Perfect for working in kitchens.  They'll also handle non-ferrous metals very well, again up to 3mm thick.

And they're capable when cutting into cast iron, wood, veneers and plastic.

Also included in the case are two arbors, an A1 and an A10, both with a hex-shank bit. These will work perfectly with the holesaws for pilot drilling.

All in all, this Starrett holesaw bundle is the perfect addition to any plumber's kit; faster cutting, less heat build up, with the ability to allow you to cut into most of the materials you'll encounter on the jobsite.

Electricians often find themselves needing to cut large holes in a wide variety of materials in order to run cabling; it's just part of the job. The tricky part is when the material is something tough like stainless steel or non-ferrous metals.

That's where the KFC06021 comes in. Again, each of the six holesaws supplied benefits from Starrett's new manufacturing process. Each has 5.5TPI, allowing for smoother and faster cut in all materials, and the new tooth material will resist heat and wear, even when cutting through tubes with a wall thickness of 3mm.

While the KFC06021 is particularly ideal for working on stainless steel and metals, it will also handle wood, plaster, suspended floors and veneers.
