Im saving up for this one. I really like it. did a search on it on priate. and heard good things. Want to know whats the best whole saw to use. and do you guys really like this unit? or something else? I was going to get the tn-100 but for 50 more bucks the master looks a bit better made etc

I have found thru the 1000's of notches that lennox is the only way to go. They last almost a whole chassis.

Any other brand burns the teeth off on the first notch

And you need a big 1/2" drill that spins slow and has loads of torque

I will agree with the lennox being best. Ive used alot of milwalkee's and it seems they just grenade and loose all the teeth after a few cuts.

The best holesaw style notcher on the market is from JDM Manufacturing. There's doesnt have the angle limitations like the rest of them do. Dont worry about JDM's HUGE price tag...you can do like I did...buy the vise, bearing block, and drill shaft from Pro Tools(cost me like $120 I think), and make your own, using the same design. Its super simple...just 2 pieces of .5" x 2" flat bar, drill a hole in the end of them for a pivot point, mount all the components from Pro Tools to it, and your good. Mine works incredibly well, and was built for about $130. I rounded all the corners on the flat bar and everything and it looks very nice, but thats just estatics(sp?).
Hope this helps save some people money for a better product!

Ditto on the Lenox holesaws. Tried every brand (some expensive) and nothing has held up even half as long. The one I have in the notcher now has been in there for a good 6 months, used on a daily basis and just won't die. It is finally getting a bit dull, but no missing teeth.

What exactly is Pro Tools? I did some google searching and couldn't really come up with any company by that name, but if it is possible to make one of those JMR Notchers for cheap (which looking at the design shouldn't be horribly hard) I'm definitely interested.
