    @ChadM

    That was a heck of a heavy hole saw bit, wasn’t it. I think it weighed more then my drill.

    Those choppers are over me now.

    It was real heavy! It tore through stuff though – the ceiling I cut the holes in was 5/8″ drywall on furring strips over top of 3/4″ thick plaster then lathe. That bit blasted through it and left a nice clean hole.

    Wow way cool for you two, It sounds like it was past the R & D stage though and they wanted your opinion. Just like the Testers club

    I got the impression that it was a prototype and they were going to make changes. I also spoke to a Bosch engineering guy for about a 1/2 hour.

    Had no clue when I received my hole saw that this was part of the Testers Club. I knew I wouldn’t use it right away so gave it to an Owner of a Restoration company I did some work for to test out. Would have kept it and given some feedback if I had known :S

    How clean would you say? Would it compare to a forstner bit?

    It made a clean enough hole in heavy textured drywall that the 1/2″ trim ring on a 4″ can easily covered what minimal tear-out there was.

    That’s about what I thought. I suppose it was wishful thinking that it would cut like a forstner bit.

    I’ll have to put the forstner bit set on my wishlist.

    The bit was designed for 4″ inch can installs – for that purpose it worked great.

    I haven’t heard of anyone testing anything for a long time and unless they are keeping the testing underwraps, you can probably count on one hand how many tools for testing have been sent out.

    Was told a few weeks ago after some communication with ITW that I will a product tester for them to try products before they go to market. I am always into trying new fasteners or anchors. It’s actually pretty exciting.

    Also, Congrats Redwood on the recent news of review/testing of the Skilsaw Worm Drive Table Saw!

    Not the pictures I provided Dirty.
    I actually wrote something and Jim has the file since last week.
    He still has to upload it.

    Be patient… It can take a while. Jim has to edit the file and arrange it to his liking.

    I would be worried that the stuff I get that is still being tested doesn’t meet up with code yet since it is being tested. Be careful you don’t get yourself in a bind if you are using the stuff on a job. Just my thoughts.
