wads
« on: March 10, 2018, 12:01:12 PM »
I'm new and forgot about this forum so I posted this on the regular discussion forum but here goes anyway. A hole saw with the teeth ground off and sharpened with a disk or belt sander works great for cutting wads or cleaning patches. It's something that can be bought at any hardware store fairly cheep and will last quite awhile. There's even a couple of slots in the sides for pushing out the material cut. And yes, the drill is removed first.

I have been using the hole saws that way for many years now. You may be able to find a friend in construction who would save worn out hole saws for you.
