What hole saw do you use to cut out a 4" or 3 1/2" round opening in a stucco?
Does anybody use a carbide hole saw that size?

Edward


Thanks

An old square shank screwdriver and a hammer.

I use Lenox carbide tipped hole saws if the stucco is not too hard. If the stucco is very hard the hole saws will not last long. The also make carbide grit hole saw for hard materials but I haven’t tried one yet. A couple of months ago I saw a 4” hole saw in OSH designed to cut hard materials. I didn’t recognize the brand but I believe it was made in Germany.

I am not completely sure about the stucco, but you might try using a tile cut bit and a roto zip. It sure does work well for that concrete siding stuff- masonite, and I have also made plenty of knock outs for switch and outlets in concrete block the same way.

Diamond core drills. Similar, with carbide tips are just as effective, and will cut an accurate hole through any building material. No need to buy, Tool Hire stores should carry these and the necessary gut-buster drill. 4-5" diameter, no problem.
