There is a strong tendency during use to use excessive speed.

One must back down the revs so as to maintain rock-steady control.

You'll be through the sheetrock soon enough, anyway.
This particular hole cutting tool is so rigid that the pilot mostly serves to position the location -- the octagon lip has a cushion face that should hold the tool steady, mostly.

The original design used standard tooling for the cutting tip. It's too 'fat.'

Hence, one is wise to grind it down -- a lot -- so that its kerf is not so absurdly huge.

This also decreases the dust, the tip resistance... while increasing the elegance of the cut.

It's the one flaw in the tool... bit it's easy to fix.

This tool also has the considerable advantage of having only one cutting tip -- and absolute freedom to determine the size of hole cut -- from 3" on out to 9"+ !
