Are you using a 5.0 battery on the hammer drill? I don't use mine a bunch but liked it enough to get a second after the first got stolen. Used it with a 2.5" hole saw through a 1/4" crossmember by hand the other day. Stalled a couple times, but I was running it really slow and it kept trying to grab. Didn't snap my wrists so that was cool...Cutting into a flat surface is totally different that a round bit into a round tube.seems the annular cutters work awesome on my mag drill.
they are way easier to change out to a different size then the holesaws in the notcher.
I have a thing about needing a pipewrench to change sizes
I have a large collection of hole saws so it isnt like I have never used them.
I get this from your link
"Due to increased demand, we temporarily have reduced product selection available for delivery to your region. We are working to improve selection availability as soon as possible."
isnt communism a great idea. is there a massive shortage of yeast in the states too or just in the frozen north?
I took a 3/4 lock collar and welded it to a piece of flatbar, then used a hole saw with no drill to cut through the flat bar, the collar keeps it from moving around, so I just clamp that wherever I need the hole. This is for flat material.Trying to picture this but not getting it.
What are you using for cutting fluid? Tap magic? I go thru hole saws fast not sure why though. Im not forcing it just feel like even pressure it cuts better.

I don't use anything when notching, too messy and the hole saws are cheap enough. I try to keep the speed relatively low, but sometimes it takes a little extra rpm to keep it from grabbing. Like i said, the Milwaukee hole saws are impressive.
On my little flat bar fixture deal I actually use an air gun in the empty set screw hole. Steady flow of air clears the chips out and even after a few holes through 1/8" plate the hole saw is cool to the touch. I hate the mess of cutting fluid, I only use it on taps.
Milwaukee drill set is pretty good too for not being very expensive.
Since I sound like a Milwaukee fan Boi, I will add, I fucking hate my M18 fuel hammer drill. It can't even drill a 3/8" hole in steel without stalling 25 times. It must be a lame ass nanny system, my old brushed drills were almost scary in "1st gear" I even snapped a 5/8" drill once. I think the old one had more power in 2 than this one does in 1.
