Physically they look like the metal ones but with ebay you can never be sure.

I bought a proper 20mm one for cutting metal last year and it cost about $25 for one - so for a kit of proper ones obviously a lot more.

Buyer beware.

jonboy...when using any holesaw on metal ..use very slow speed, that is where variable speed drills are good...otherwise you will just burn the teeth off, no matter what you pay for the holesaws.

Hi Jon,
I've looked at these myself for a while now.
Thought they might come in handy. Myself and a mate have bought ALKA'S 12v 150 psi/150litre per minute compressor and it works a treat.dead flat 31" tyre to 34psi in 3 minutes. I guess if you not using them every day, day in, day out they would be money well spent. The seller has had good feed back.What are you going to lose, 50 bucks at most?

They are a metal cutting hole saw but the quality is unknown.

A couple of tips, If you haven't used hole saws before don't use the drill in the saw to drill the pilot hole, because if the drill goes straight through and the saw blade teeth catch, the best result is you will break the pilot drill bit, the worst result is the saw will then leave some lovely teeth mark swirls all over the surface.

Also use some cutting compound, this will give the saw blades a much greater life.
