I've read through almost all the past post about cutting my front cylinder holes and didnt see anyone mention it. So Can I use cutting oil when cutting my front cylinder holes? Because I seem to be going through alot of hole saw bits. if not are there any special brand of hole saw that I conld use? Thanks guys. and if it helps its a 94 lincoln TC and I'm using Maco hole saws, yes that means I have to wait almost a week in between to get new ones off the truck that comes by work.

you can use any thin grade oil (thinner the better), or even water ! it basically takes the heat away from the saw blade preventing it getting 'soft'. I usually use a healthy squirt of wd40 as its always close by.

The hole saws are free to replace(life time) but the truck only comes once a week. I've use my air drill for a while and then switched to a 1/2 heavy duty electric drill. I'll try the WD40 when I get my saws and let you guys know, thanks.

I'd say keep the drill at around 600-800 RPM, To fast and the hole saw won't last.

When the cutting area just starts to smoke add more oil.

I agree with using the Rigid hole saws cause thats what I use. Buy some cutting oil and you will notice a difference in cutting versus oil or wd 40 and so on. Make sure that you are cutting at a low speed and you should get a nice clean cut.

I disagree. I have a Dewalt, Makita, and even an older Craftsman and that has been used on many cars and still going strong.

water is much cleaner, and holes saws are a 'you get what you pay for" kind of thing. I always buy a bunch of cheap ones and borrow good ones from work when i got to cut frame holes or something.

The big band/chop saw at my old job used some kinda water based lube. It had a nozzle that would constantly squirt as it was cutting. (wish I had got that saw B4 someone else did :banghead: ). Anyway ,I'm gonna try a squirt bottle with a lube/oil mixture of some kind. Seems affordable yet affective. Not that WD40 is expensive or anything. But its nice to just douse that shit and not think about wasting the whole can.
