    Don: do you like the holcutter better than a unibit?
    Can they be sharpened?
    I have had unibits sharpened with good results.

    A lot of times when I am making holes it is an energized panel. I have the guys deenergize as much as possible but in some cases I will still have feeders coming in that the poco would have to kill. So as minimal shavings as possible.

    But I do like the looks of them holecutters I might buy some to try on other applications:smile:

    Don , what is the pricing for the hole cutter? unibits are quite dear - I save mine for using them for enlarging exsisting kos
    I can only please one person each day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking good either.

    First it is an OSHA violation to work on or near energized equipment, and second how do you make the first hole for the KO pull bolt?

    With the C frame, you don't need the bolt hole. Saves a ton of time.

    I didn't see a C frame in the KO set that you linked to.

    Yes, that is true. That is mostly due to the fact that I have not posted any links in this thread so far.

    EDIT... just dawned on me that there's two of us with the same name in this thread. Maybe that's where we got mixed up. I was just throwing in that C-frame idea, in case somebody found it useful. It is a somewhat obscure piece of equipment that I'm sure many have not used. It sure is handy.

    Yes there are to marks posting in this thread. But you (Marc) were answering just fine. LOL I know it is not good practice to work around energized equipment. I am a residential electrician I mostly punch holes in temporary panels for construction trailers. Most of the time by the time the trailer is there and I have had a trench dug there is a meter a the tpole. I tell my guys we have a no hot policy but if the have to we have guide lines to go by. The correct PPE must be used.
