    A couple of questions on this bi-metal hole saw HTW Edge Impact Tough hole saws.

    I wonder if you get a bunch of these in different sizes, are the bit/arbor detachable? So I can combine them for storage? Or do they have to take up so much room?

    I believe that I have just seen the cutters available so that would mean that the arbor would be detachable / replaceable.

    I thought all of them have the arbor detachable.
    Was I mistaken?

    If those are like my Bosch kit I bought years ago , they are all detachable , that’s the 19 piece kit I bought plus a few others to add to the kit , pretty good system.

    Okay, I’m puzzled by the design. Why is there the flange like that instead of being a true cylinder. It would limit the depth of cut and would seem to be that purpose. But why?

    It’s a thin wall hole saw good for cutting thin steel or aluminum, I am thinking drilling KO holes through steel studs and junction boxes etc the widened base prevent it from going too deep.

    OK here is more info I found.

    First, they are sold with the bit/shank. Doesn’t look detachable to me. Looking through various images I do not see a set screw or something around them.

    From Bosch’s specifications, “Each hole saw has an impact-rated 1/4 In. hex shank for use in impactors and most drills. It features a depth stop to help prevent breakthrough for more precise drilling, as well as a pilot bit spring for automatic plug ejection. The integrated one-piece design means that no separate arbor or pilot bit is required.”

    Drill some plywood and I doubt that spring will eject something.

    Hole saws take up a lot of space. Bosch has a Hole Saw kit in a box but not in the Edge series.

    This is the ones I like: detachable types. I can replace either of them.

    I have some of the Bosch multi construction hole saws that are detachable. It’s nice being able to store them all inside each other.

    That’s a nice set, compact with a case.

    @theamcguy it’s a good little kit , I bought mine from Rona probably close to 10 years ago , I paid around 149.00 plus tax for it.

    This is the type of Bosch hole saws I have. They are extremely fast and durable, but they throw chips everywhere. Mostly in your shoes though.

    I have different types of hole making bits for different materials.

    I have a set of “fine” diamond hole saws for stones and marbles, a set of rough diamond coated ones for ceramic tiles, two sets for wood, a set for thin metal, a set of step bits, a set of spade bits, a few forstner bits, and a set of beat up ones I use sometimes for multiple materials like cabinet ply + sheet rock or durock + plaster. Then I have a giant 12″ adjustable hole saw to cut ceiling rock for recessed light holes.

    That’s why I am always struggling to figure out how best to store them. If you have a case for each set you will fill up your truck with hole saw cases!

    True. I have the same problem in the shop cases everywhere. They really start to stack up and no matter what the case you need is on the bottom.
