Today’s Job Tip is coming from IBEW Local 428, Bakersfield, CA. Our IBEW brother is showing us how to stop your Hole Saw from going through when drilling through sheet metal in 3 very simple steps.

Step 1: Wrap a good amount of electrical tape around the end of your hole saw.

Step 2: Put on your safety glasses if you haven’t already.

Step 3: Drill until you smell burning electrical tape.

Thanks, brother!
