    <font color=red>IT WORKED PERFECTLY!!!</font color=red> I was a bit sceptical(sp?) when I put that little hole saw on my old B&amp;D drill, but what the heck, I really didn't want to buy a new 1/2" drill just to drill a couple of 3/4" holes in my FEL bucket. WOW!!!! I was able to drill/saw each 3/4" hole in about 3 minutes. The entire job of fitting and installing the toothbar took about 15 minutes, much less than I had allotted. Dang, it sure is nice when something actually goes better than you expected [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    Hey, Wal
    Glad all went well and thanks for the mention of the hole saws you found at Home Depot. Sounds like something I might need to look at to complement my twist drill collection.

    I drill a lot of holes as part of my work, the hole saw--a metal cutting type ----would have been my weapon of choice, as a second choice on thinner metal a Unibit (tm) would have been my second choice. The Unibits can be expensive, some call them christmas tree bits or cone bits or step drills. One bit can drill multiple hole sizes as long as the thickness of the metal does not exceed the step thickness. Piloting and then stepping up several times in drill size would have been my third choice with the final hole sized with a reamer, but that is just me.
    Glad you went with the hole saw--worked easy didn't it and more than sufficient for a tractor. J

    The hole saw is a very good way to go. I did some checking and couldn't find a 3/4" drill bit to fit a 3/8" drill chuck either in any of the catalogs I looked at. However, I not only found the unibit up to 3/4" to fit a 3/8" drill, in the catalog, but found two of them on the tool truck I'll be driving all this next week. But as TresCrows said, they ain't cheap.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]
