Point noted Herb . At least twice in a lifetime lol .

I actually learned something about cutting holes . No matter how many times I measure , there never perfect .
So now I cut one with a smaller hole saw then needed , then see how far it’s out, and go over it with the proper size after I see the reference point .
Works like a charm

Too many.....

You can do the same with cardboard and hot glue to measure around obstructions, but that is a far more elegant method!

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

I’m an electrician, and can see many uses for this in that trade. Gotta drill multiple holes for pipes in panel boards, junction boxes, troughs, etc. Could occasionally be useful for carpentry/woodworking. I didn’t look deep enough to see what the price was.
