Quote from: waggin on May 05, 2009, 01:24:46 PMThat hole saw probably became disposable after the first hole, I'm guessing. Anything I've used on my siding killed every cutting implement I used. I have a few more holes to drill for some deck rail anchors at 1-3/4" dia, and I think I can get by with either a hole saw or forstner bit. I only got 4 good holes from a cheap forstner bit, then two more under protest. I looked into a carbide tipped hole saw...$45+ , so it looks like I'm going "disposable single project use." If anyone has any tips or thoughts as alternatives, I'd love to hear them. I'm leaning toward a couple of cheap disposable hole saws for the last 6 holes.That Solosider looks slick; I used homemade wood blocks w/no adjustment potential.As a resident of the rainy Pacific NW, I see the porch ledger board and wonder if there's some flashing in its future?
