    Hole Cutting

    Are there any hand tools that can cut out a circle, (for the speaker?) Or is there any way to do it with a drill?

    I am having a hard time finding someone with a jigsaw...

    Re: Hole Cutting

    Depending on the size of the hole, you can easily use a holesaw bit on your drill to do sizes up to 4", anything larger and you can use a jigsaw, or if your **** about quality/asthetics, use a plunge router. Look on harborfreight.com for cheap prices on hand tools.

    Yeah they are that cheap. Sears has Bosch and Craftman ones for $40. I saw the cheapest ones for $20-30 at Menards. edit: also a place called Crafty Beaver was selling em for $20, don't know if you have those in FL.

    for him to cut out some simple circles how much should he have to pay.

    Looking at what the guys said, he obviously hasnt needed one til this point, so i would think he would want something cheap to cut the hole, being that he probably wont use it much.

    Re: Hole Cutting

    I have several hand tools from HF that have lasted me quite some time. One is a 4" grinder that I have used alot for fabrication work on my Jeep's bumpers, roll cage, and tube fenders. It was on sale for $14.99, and definately worth its money from the very first project I used it on.
