I had one, used it twice (for 3") and it is on a shelf. Self feeding in my opinion is, it.

I agree, self feed is the easiest quickest way in most cases, but sometimes we just need that hole saw. Maybe not a 3", but i'm curious how they would do drilling out countertop holes when you need a 7/8 hole.

I'll tell you how it feels... Hurts like
heck when you hit a nail. Even a cordless drill can hurt. My supplier gave me an 1.3/8 inch bit to test drive. Tried it a few times, even forgot about it until now.

they are like everything else.they have their place..they work real well when roughing in but leaves a very ragged hole....limitation is the depth...but when drilling overhead they are much easier to handle than the self feed.

The nails in the plates are the only thing that gets me. When I frame I do not nail between the studs so the plumber, be it me or someone else can drill without hitting any nails.
