        Cast iron sinks are 1/4"+ thick. Are you doing pressed steel or a real cast iron sink?

      Thanks Rick I have drilled a few kitchen sinks and chipped a few luckily the flange usually covered it. i just ordered the kit from Amazon for around $150. the size is 1.25" I think this is the right size? thanks again for bumping such a useful post

        practice on a used tear out sink first. also a magnet and no water or everything will rust real fast.

      Hello. I'm a builder in So. California. This thread was extremely helpful, and I too purchased a Relton PC20 hole saw. It was for a one-time need and it worked flawlessly -- highly recommended and well made.

      So, instead of it stilling in a tool box for an eternity, I thought I'd sell it. With tax and shipping it cost me ~$177 new. I will sell it for $120 and you pay the shipping (1.3 lbs from Zip code 92010).

      Please PM me if interested. If it doesn't sell here, I will put it on eBay. Thanks.

          10 year old thread and still going.

          Doesn't get used as much as it has in the past, but I get a call once in a while to drill a sink.

            About 6 months ago I was called to snake out a kitchen line during a kitchen renovation, while there I was ask by the homeowner if I knew what to use to drill a hole in a old farm house sink that they where going to rehab ( they wanted a hole for instant hot water ) so I referred them to Ricks thread here and a couple weeks later in the mail I got a thank you card telling me they couldn't find anybody... drilled it themselves and not to forget the gift certificate that came with the thank you card to a local steak house. Thanks Rick.

              Have them throw me a Chocolate shake gift card too.

              Glad it was of help.

            Time to break out an oldie but goodie post from the past. For those that never saw it, scroll to the first post and read all about the process. Always fun to look back at the old members who would post on the forum.

            just noticed the forum stats on this thread.

                Do you use tape or something to keep the bit from wandering? panorama charter com

                  Yes, it's the Relton. I have 2 sizes and they work great when used properly.

                    Thanks for the compliment, but why did you post as ThomasGrace on 10/27 and today as SAking?

                      Both of those posts are just rehashed comments from previous posters. Scroll back and you'll see. That's one of the new tactics used by the spammers. They will copy a members comment from the past, reword it so it's not exactly the same but says essentially the same thing, and post it. Then the trick of coming back later to add the hyperlink to their spam or phishing site.

                      To me it seems 1 or 2 out of every 100 new members to this forum is a legit person looking for help or to join in on a discussion, the rest are all current or future spammers.

                        Thanks Bob. Didn’t catch it. But it’s taken care of now.
