Cook tip! Thanks Here are a couple of holesaw pro tips : -when cutting PVC with holesaw, run drill in reverse. -use a hole instead of a pilot bit to keep holesaw tracking if cutting uneven surface or cant have pilot hole in plug, ..just as an option should the pilot bit not be conducive to progress for any reason. Cut a hole into a hunk of ¾" plywood using holesaw. Clamp or hotglue or 2x stick mounting tape to mount hunk of plywood , aligning hole to area hole is needed. Now remove pilot bit, stick holesaw in hoke in plywood and start cutting your hole. -pilot bit should only stick out ½" max below holesaw to reduce the risk of kickback or otherwise binding up the saw and breaking the pilot bit.

Brandon Lund, cool. I'll keep that in mind. I've got lot's of tips n tricks I'd like to share. Maybe too many. I already subscribed but haven't checked out your catalog yet. Do you have any oxy/acet torch tips? A trick I use a lot, especially when using shop torches (as opposed to my own), if you cant get a sharp, defined flame n cone, with torch lit and as adjusted as you can get it, try to snuff out the flame on a piece of wood. (Be sure to have backflow devices installed, to be safe). Torch will pop like crazy. More popping is better than less. Then look at your flame. It should be almost picture perfect. It's a less evasive and way faster way to clean your oxy/acet torch tip. ..Be sure wood is not burning when finished Idk why that tip popped up. ..no pun intended.

Harry Audus (10 months ago)
Thanks so much! At first I thought it wasn't working on my stuck Lenox, but I kept tap-tap-tapping around the rim, et voilà! it was free.
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Harry Audus Excellent! Pretty neat trick huh!

Lifesaver 👍
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Thanks man! I shouted many swear words over the years until I learned this trick
You beauty. I could *kiss* you!!! I was about to throw out my hole saw because the auger I needed was stuck in the big hole borer. Fetched the hammer, tap tappety tap and hey presto, it's undone!! Bloody marvellous :) Tomorrow I can drill the holes to fit taps to all the plastic barrels and start my rainwater harvesting (if we get any rain that is)
till no rain. 24C and 80% humidity :( I've been puggling about inside barrels all morning fitting taps after drilling the holes, *but* I also made one to collect grey water from the dishwasher, washing machine and handbasin. It's all good for watering the raised beds as the nitrates in detergent feed the plants.
Brandon Lund (11 months ago)
pam Thompson-Clarke-Reynolds-Bowers-Burton im glad I could help! Good luck with your rain collecting equipment. We just had a hard rain today.

Thank you :) Its always annoyed me and this will come in handy someday.. Thanks again.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Your welcome Richard! I'm glad I can save others this frustration :)
MadMetalManiac74 (1 year ago)
Meh I like the channel lock way better. Grip twist and its off. No tapping around the thing. Never destroyed any doing this. If you risk destroying the tool chances are its already done for. At which point you just leave that arbor in iy and buy another one. But again I haven't had this happen myself and I bore through 1/2 6061 t6 aluminum with mine.
Ken W (1 year ago)
Wow thanks man, this really helped!!! If this is a such common problem though, manufacturers should start thinking of a better way to make an arbor...
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Ken W Thanks Ken! I'm glad I was able to help! I ruined a bunch of tools until I caught onto this neat trick!
David Andrews (1 year ago)
Im always cautious, but I fought this until I watched this video. It worked with ease
David Andrews (1 year ago)
I had been fighting one for weeks. I watched your vid and mine just popped off. Much joy, thankyou
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Glad I could help David!
GoodnightNoodles (1 year ago)
Thanks so much! I was trying so hard with my hands but it didn't work! As soon as I hammered it, it came right off with hand pressure!!! Thanks so much.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Jdawgs88 Glad I could help...it almost seems too good to be true once you know the trick!
Dave Smith (1 year ago)
Unfortunately for me it did not work multiple times. For my set at least, the best way I have found was to clamp the part you were tapping in a vise lightly and with a long wrench tug sharply to break it free. So far it has not changed the OD of my hole saw. Also applying some full synthetic motor oil to the threads greatly improved the ability for the hole saw to break off the threads.
Dave Smith (1 year ago)
They were 1"-1.5". Could just be my set or poor technique. By clamping that part lightly in the vise it may be doing something similar to tapping in that it imparts just a little bit of tension to the threads.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Sorry to hear this didn't work Dave. This is actually the first time I've heard of it not working. I've had some that took a bit longer than others to remove, but they have always come off. Just out of curiosity, what size hole saw were you using? The smaller the hole saw, the harder it is to remove in my experience.
Lael Hall (1 year ago)
Good info! For whatever reason that works....it came loose after a few taps!
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)

Very helpful visuals. I couldn't remember how the things came apart.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Thank you! Hopefully it now will come apart easily! Take care and thanks for watching!
Artfully Rogue (1 year ago)
Ironically I just had this happen today and had to use a vise and a crescent wrench to break it free. I'll definitely try the hammer on the rim trick next time. Thanks Brandon
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
+Artfully Rogue Thanks man! I've done the same myself! Pipe wrenches, channel locks, I even heated a 5" hole saw once. It almost seems too simple, but it works slick!
