Holey Moses!

Got a shipment of hole saws this week. I found few outlets that sold carbide tipped hole saws. We need carbide to cut the coosa board and glass. Cutting glass will dull a bi-metal saw almost instantly. Anyway, where I could find them, they were 20-30 dollars a piece. Then I found a place that sold 13 piece carbide holesaw kits up to 2 3/4 inches in diameter. They had a "toothed" and "grit" version. We bought one of each. With the Westail being framed with Coosa Board, these carbide hole saws will get plenty of use. We also got a bi-metal hole-saw kit, up to 4 inches in diameter, for wood applications. All hole-saws, blades, router bits and drill bits that are (to be) used on glass get a mark with a yellow paint marker. This, to keep them separate from those that are used on wood. The wife gets upset when she has to use a "glass" blade on wood.
