New IDEAL Tri-Bore™ Hole Saw Touts Faster Cuts Through Virtually Any Construction Material

Three Diamond Sharpened Carbide Teeth Rip Through Wood, Sheet Rock, Metals

SYCAMORE, IL, April 13, 2011 – IDEAL today launched its latest cutting innovation: the new Tri-Bore™ multi-purpose hole saw featuring a set of three massive Tungsten Carbide teeth for ultra-aggressive cutting action.

Compatible with standard battery-powered tools or fixed stationary machines, Tri-Bore hole saws are optimal cutting solutions in HVAC, electrical, plumbing and maintenance/repair applications. The saws empower professional contractors and serious Do-It-Yourselfer's to make faster cuts through virtually any construction material, whether its nail-encrusted wood, cement and plastic board, plaster, composite enclosures, or ceiling tiles for recessed lighting.

The most notable feature of the Tri-Bore is its over-sized carbide teeth. Contractors immediately applauded this design when IDEAL took prototypes into the field. Those who tried the Tri-Bore preferred it over traditional hole saws, carbide grit bits, or self-feed bits, which is why IDEAL is confident that the saws -- available in all popular sizes from 1-3/8" to 6-7/8" and recessed lighting sizes -- will be well received by the market.

Tri-Bore's diamond-sharpened carbide teeth are larger than traditional hole saws for improved speed, cleaner cutting action, and minimized vibration. The larger size works to reduce stress by acting as an absorber that dispels vibration more readily as the saw moves through the cutting surface. Tri-Bore saws also tout deeper gullets to eliminate user fatigue resulting from prying out plugs. Additionally, each Tri-Bore saw is precision balanced to improve performance and maximize comfort. Rugged construction assures a longer life.
