I am building a project where I am using a hole saw. After drilling through 2, 1" thick boards I have to clear the scrap out of the saw. This is a really slow process and I suspect I am doing it wrong.
- Clamp the two boards I am drilling together and then clamp them in my jig.
- Cut my holes.
- Unlock the arbor
- Unscrew the hole saw from the arbor
- Use a screwdriver to poke, pry, and pound the scrap out of the saw
- Remount the saw to the arbor
What is the right way to do this? Is there a faster (but still safe) solution?
I am using a Milwaukee Hole Saw Arbor with a Milwaukee 2 3/8" hole saw. I am using the pilot bit.
