Eject Plugs Faster with New Lenox Hole Saw
The Lenox bi-metal Speed Slot Hole Saw offers fast and easy plug ejection and longer life when cutting holes in wood and metal. The patent pending design of the Lnox Speed Slot hole saw features a staircase slot for easy plug removal. The slot is wider than most and is placed low on the saw with multiple leverage points to easily eject the plug with a standard screwdriver. The Speed Slot also removes sawdust and chips while cutting, to further prevent the plug from getting stuck in the saw. The new design also increases the height of the saw by 10%, allowing for quick cuts and plug removal when cutting lumber. The Speed Slot hole saw provides up to twice the life as the previous model. The enhanced tooth form, thin kerf design, and advanced coating make cutting more efficient by removing material faster and therefore generating less heat while cutting.
