The worthiness of any tool is based on many critical engineering decisions and materials used to produce the tool. The Warranty and follow up service availability adds value to the tool(s). The Porter Cable Hole Saw Kit, is clearly innovative and built to high standards, that should provide many years of drilling holes in various materials with ease. The quick attach center (pilot drill), is very handy for changing hole saws quickly. The pilot bit with twist and insert… saves time and makes the old style requiring alan wrenches unnecessary. If you've ever had to replace the drill chuck in the motor that will be used to drill the holes with these hole saws, the cost of replacement drill chucks, can exceed the cost for this kit. The value of any tool is based on many factors. Cost, reliability, serviceability, warranty and longevity. If you use the hole saw kit infrequently, it may not seem like such a great value… But, the effort to come up with an alternative to this kit, is not worth the delays or frustration of drilling large holes in hard materials (steel, aluminum, plastics, wood, etc.). This kit is a time saver… there in lies it's value…!
