    I am just wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase a diamond hole saw.  I am looking for a 1 3/4!  I have looked in the Cedar Rapids area at Lowes, Home Depot, and Menards.  I looked on line and found a few places, but I would like to get it by Friday night.  Any suggestions?  Thanks

    45mm is actually just barely over 1 3/4 (1.77) but that's the size you probably need. This is probably the cheapest place to buy them.

    I got one of the ones from hong kong on ebay also. works great and the price is low, whats not to like? I didn't remember the shipping tanking that long but I got mine a couple of years ago.

    I have one in CR you are welcome to use.  I am pretty sure it is a 45mm.  It's one of the Hong Kong Bits, and I've only used it to drill one test hole, so it should be pretty sharp still.

    I think you can get a cheap set at Harbor Freight also.
