Since the invention of cement fiber siding, there has yet to be a perfect cutting solution. We have seen everything from powered shears to different saw blades and all seem to come close but none completely satisfy. Ridgid’s R3400 Fuego 5â€ Fiber Cement Saw is yet another contender to solve the dilemma of cutting these hard materials.
The Hitachi C7SB2 7-1/4 inch 15 amp circular saw is a workhorse product which can be found for a very reasonable price if you look hard enough. Its clean lines, comfortable feel, and powerful motor make it a decent saw for cutting, but clumsy depth and bevel adjustments give it at least some areas of improvement. This tool will do well in any handyman’s kit and some professionals may even find its lightweight styling is worth a second look.
How would you make a 2-1/2″ hole in a piece of 3/4″ plywood? A great choice is to use the 2-1/2″ hole saw that is included in the Ridgid 7040 13 piece Bi-Metal Hole Saw Set. This is the one set you need for all your large diameter holes. Since these hole saws are not your standard steel, they are able to handle going though some pretty though materials thanks to the bi-metal construction. The whole set comes in a compact hard case that keeps everything organized.
