A hole saw is a drill bit with a cylindrical cutting edge and a number of teeth that are designed to cut through metal, plastic or wood. Hole saws are typically used in construction and automotive applications.
How To Hole Saw Stainless Steel
There are a few ways to hole saw stainless steel, but the most common is to use a carbide-tipped hole saw. First, drill a pilot hole in the center of the spot where you want to make the hole. Then, insert the hole saw and rotate it while applying pressure. Keep rotating and apply more pressure until the saw breaks through the other side. Finally, sand or file down any rough edges.

- Using a center punch, make an indentation in the center of the stainless steel plate
- Fit the hole saw over the drill bit and ensure that the teeth of the hole saw are lined up with the indentation

Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Need A Special Drill Bit For Stainless Steel?
No, you do not need a special drill bit for stainless steel. A standard high-speed steel drill bit will work just fine.
What Hole Saw Will Cut Stainless Steel?
A hole saw will cut stainless steel, but it is important to use a saw that is specifically designed for cutting stainless steel. A standard hole saw will not work, as the teeth will become dull quickly and the saw will not be able to cut through the stainless steel.
What Drills Do I Need For Stainless Steel?
The drills you need for stainless steel will vary depending on the type of stainless steel you are using. There are three main types of stainless steel- austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic. Each type requires a different drill bit. For example, a drill bit for drilling through austenitic stainless steel is different from a drill bit for drilling through martensitic stainless steel.
To hole saw stainless steel, use a diamond coated hole saw bit and lubricant. The lubricant will help the bit penetrate the steel and create a clean cut.
