Blow Molded Case
The LENOX hole saw kit comes in a tough blow-molded box that keeps everything secured in place. The hole saws are protected in the roughest of work settings by the strong construction case, which prevents damage from drops. Metal latches and metal pin hinges secure the base, which will not break or rip. There’s even a spot to affix a padlock to keep it from being stolen.
On the Job
During a recent basement renovation, we were installing new door slabs to spruce up the look. These door slabs needed new handles installed. Our door lock installation kit comes with cheap / no-named hole saws. We replaced them with the LENOX 1″ and the 2-1/8″ hole saws.
We found that the LENOX bimetal blades cut through the doors like a hot knife through butter! These hole saws have larger sharper teeth, therefore removing more wood for faster cuts.
The mandrils are very easy to use as pins slide in the holes cut into the bottom of the hole saw and then a nut tightens up to the base keeping them secure with no slipping. They do not screw into the hole saw directly which makes material removal super easy. The Speed Slot designed like a staircase makes for easy plug ejection. Below is a comparison of the LENOX mandril vs a self screwing mandril.
Is there anything more frustrating than hunting for something that you know you have but can’t find? If you’re not cautious, hole saws can potentially be misplaced. This problem is solved using the LENOX Contractor’s Big Daddy Hole Saw Kit. You may spend more time cutting and less time looking if you keep all of your hole saws in one safe and secure case. LENOX’s 26-piece kit will set you back just under $300.00, but having all of the hole saws you’ll need is well worth it in our opinion.
