Overall, others give this:
I have used many of these hole saws in the past and have either torqued them off their spindle or burned them up during the sawing process. However, this carbon steel set worked perfectly. Word of caution, you still need to be take breaks and let the hole saw cool down between cuts, else you can still burn them out and dull the saw prematurely.
Here are some more details on this item, as the current description is quite lacking. There are 4 hole saws included, with sizes being: 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 1-3/4", and 2-1/8". Strangely enough, there isn't one listed as 2"! However, there is a fifth piece that is included with the set which is the quick shank change madrel, the part that is inserted into your drill / driver. This is important as if you don't have one already, you won't be able to use the hole saws. This is why I chose this all-in-one kit as opposed to the individual hole saws by Dewalt, available for purchase at Sears, as Dewalt did not include a mandrel.
I bought a used desk for my office and wanted to make a hole to run cables for computer monitor, keyboard and mouse to the desktop (placed on the floor under the desk). I had never made large holes like 1" or 1.5" before and was concerned about my skills especially on a nice table. However, this hole saw made it a breeze. I used a hand-drill (12v Lithium-ion) that had enough power. Nice neat clean hole that I then filled with a desk grommet. Very sharp and easy to use for a novice like me.
This tool has enabled me to make clean holes for electrical and speaker wiring in my daughter's fine furniture bookshelves, my wife's kitchen cabinets and my workshop storage units. The range of sizes helps to keep the hole size to a practical minimum for various requirements. The quality of the holes is excellent, and they appear to have been made by the manufacturer.
I purchased the Craftsman Carbon Steel Hole Saw set for the installation of a Whirlpool dishwasher. This set came in very handy for making a nice hole in the cabinet to run the water lines to the Kenmore waste disposal. This set made a nice clean smooth hole and allowed me to install rubber gasket so the water line would not rub. The slot on the side of the hole saw made for easy removal of the trapped wood. This is a good set with the most common sizes. Having the ability to change the hole saw size is a very nice feature. This is a great tool to have to make a project or installation a lot smoother. I would recommend this tool be added to your box.
