Drilling out a 1-1/2 inch deadbolt hole to a new 2-1/8 inch hole
I recently had to install a new 21/8 deadbolt in an old 11/2 inch hole. I was going to cut a plug with my 11/2 inch saw but I realized it would be sloppy in the hole. Instead, I just screwed my 11/2 inch saw onto the mandrel inside my 21/8 inch saw and used the smaller saw as a guide for the larger hole saw. It worked perfectly!
Great tip simven. Much easier than cutting a plywood template and aligning it properly each time you want to make a new hole.
This could stay assembled and live in a remodeler's tool box because this sort of thing comes up over and over again.
I like this idea too ... wouldn't have thought of it ... I've only ever done it like Dan ... GREAT IDEA!!!!
This is a very helpful idea. Beats trying to hold the larger hole saw steady long enough to start the cut with no drill bit as reference. Thanks.
I think you'll find that Starret makes what they call a "boo-boo" arbour to handle exactly this kind of situation.
Now, if only they'd made a device to make the hole smaller!!!

I like this idea very much. I'm about to do the same thing for a client. After screwing around with a cut plug it dawned on me to turn a plug on my lath. I can get the plug as tight as I need and with some glue I'll be good to go.
However, I will try this first before I slip in the lath plug.
Excellent, thanks for the tip.
