Use our Hole Saw with Arbor for preparing posts for installing the Titan Wood Post Anchor. The circular cut guides the sharp edged tube into the post. The 1-¼" saw is for the 4x4 post anchor and the 1-3/4" saw is used with the 6x6 post anchor. The depth of the saw is only 1-7/8" but don't let that fool you. The tube on the post anchor is longer and is intended to be driven down far beyond the depth of the hole saw kerf cut. Then drive the tube and base of the post anchor flush to post with a 3 lbs short handle sledge hammer.
Worked quite well, but could be longer. The first post I did, the base went into the post very hard. What I did was drilled all the way in, and then chislled out the wood about 1/2 inch and drilled again to go deeper. Doing that let me set the base into the post without a lot of hard pounding on the base. That worked great.
Well made and worked great.
The hole saw and arbor seemed to be well made and it worked well. Happy with.
Titan hole saw
If you are going to buy the post anchors, get the hole saw to go with it. Cut through 9 6x6 treated post with ease. Worked well. Just make sure you have a 1/2 inch drill for the chuck.
This tool made the installation a breeze.
