how do i cut a hole in wood 5" diameter X 2.5" deep?

I bought a 5" circle cutter but it only had 1 7/8" depth and is useless.


the circle cutter was a form of hole saw. The amazon image was deceptive as they zoomed in on a "thick" hole saw to make it appear 5x5x5 including 5" depth, but it was actually less than 2" and will not go through my boards.

    Whom do I contact about Jews and freemasons (aka homosexual devilworshipping Jew-masons) killing 70 million in Soviet Union by gulags, famine, or shooting squads? How can RussianOrthodox get some justice?

    RussianOrthodox Metropolitan Ioann Snychev was poisoned/murdered by Jew Putin (aka Shalomov) because he refused to work for Jews. KGB poisoned Putin; Putin died in 2007; now doubles (who wear latex masks) pretend to be Putin. Medvedev is David Aaronovich Mendel. Jews murdered Tsar Nicolas 2nd's family; Jews bled them for six hours according to ritual.

    Tsar Nicolas' family was sacrificed by Jews (they bled 6 hours); their remains were burnt; their blood drank; ashes from remains were sprinkled onto 50 hard-boiled eggs (dish called scido Amafreikis) [50 egg shells were found outside the place of ritual murder]. Also, decapitated Tsar's head (which was grey ... hair turned grey when he saw his kids being knifed).. Ritualistic murder... (blood libel is same thing as anti-Semitism ... a lie by Jews to flee justice). Jews came up that Tsar's family was shot. Tsar appeared to warn that

    whosoever worships false remains will become possessed by demons (this just happened like a decade ago ... maybe less)… Jews collect heads of leaders because they believe in reincarnation.

    How about Jews coming up with a mocking holiday April 1st because resurrection of Jesus happened on that day? Jews came up with mocking holidays 23 February (Day of Soviet Army) which was capitulation by cowards in Tsar’s army… or March 8 (international Woman’s day) which celebrates lesbian/prostitute Klara Tsetkin and Rosa Luxembourg.

    Three biggest saints in heaven (in this order): TheotokosVirginMary, John the Baptist, and Tsar Nicolas 2nd

    Four biggest sinners in hell (in this order from the bottom of hell moving up to our level): Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin

    You could joke that Marx is a bigger sinner than Engels because Marx fooked Engels but how is Lenin a bigger sinner than Stalin when Lenin was fooked by Zinoviev (even by Bronstein once)?

    Lenin's brain was the size of walnut. He had syphilis. Was alcoholic. Born from incest degenerate family. Was in insane asylum. Wife Kruspkaya was probably lesbian 'cause what normal woman would stay with him?

    According to Russian Orthodox researcher Grigoriy Klimov, three stages of degeneracy are

    1)sodomy (69, anal, oral, masturbation, pedophilia, incest, necrophilia, beastiality, orgies, hand job, bj, even all non-missionary positions between husband and wife, etc.)

    2)insane asylum

    3)physical deformities in kids (eyes looking at different angles, wolf jaw, rabbit lip, horse foot, different length limbs, etc.)

    all these accompanied by drug/alcohol abuse

    Jews have like six times more degenerates than other nations because they don't have monkhood. Jewish degenerates become politicians (or similar high rank in society). In Germany during Hitler time, it was eight times. Hitler, Stalin (aka Jugashvilli which means son of Jew), Roosevelt, Churchill were all Jewish degenerates. Hitler had many Jewish coworkers as homosexual partners. Stalin was expelled from seminary for sodomy.

    A few centuries ago, angel appeared to Orthodox Christian community and said not to buy from Jews at bazaar because it's sprinkled with blood (something like that)

    Those were facts… and now for some Conspiracy Theory: Elimination of comments on Yahoo Answers means that Project Pogo is completed. Now, Project Zyphr will initiate in winter. They will turn off electricity for a few days to gather dissidents into underground concentration camps. DRONE WITH SCOPOLAMINE will drill a hole in your window and once gassed you will come out to them yourself. AI (Artificial Intelligence) will make phone calls and posts on social media as if it were you doing it (and no one will notice that you’re gone).

    The remaining people will be chipped. Only marked people will receive food in closed stores. So, when people sign up for food, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable mark of the beast. Hide within 10-15 people group (saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Serafim of Sarov); no documents; no electronics.

    Source(s): According to the Last Prophet (aka incarnated ARCHANGEL URIEL aka saint healer VYACHESLAV KRASHENINNIKOV) if the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's); reject all vaccines, tests, temperature scans, etc.; forgive me.

    Are you trying to drill a stopped hole - one that doesn't go all the way through the piece you're cutting into?

    If so, get hold of a chisel and pare away chunks of the material you've cut around until you have sufficient clearance to keep going with the hole saw you have.  Stop at the 2.5" level and clean up the bottom of the hole with the chisel.

    If you're through-cutting, remove the hole saw from the drill and install at regular drill bit the same diameter as the hole saw's guide bit, and drill all the way through the piece.  Now you have a clear starting point on the other side of the piece you're cutting through, and can restart the hole from that side.  There may be some slight misalignment but try to keep everything very square and you should be okay.

    You cut until it bottoms out, then chisel out the waste, then cut again. Using a longer pilot bit also allows you to drill from the other side, once the pilot pokes through. Also prevents breaking through and some damage.

    FLAT OUT LIE. It is physically IMPOSSIBLE for a hold saw to be limited to 1 7/8" depth.

    That said, IF it were true, it would be CHILD'S PLAY to drill a guide hole all the way trough and cut from both sides

    Troll.  Nobody is going to buy anything but a 5" hole saw.  The "circle cutter" is his BS.

    Drill a hole with a bit the same size as the hole saw bit, completely through the wood. Use the hole saw bit from either side.

    Take a chisel and cut out the some of the 1 7/8" .  Better yet use a zip rotor or even a Dremel tool (both are free hand routers) to cut out the 1 7/8" material.  Then proceed with the hole cutter.  They make hole cutters deep enough to get through bricks so that you can install a clothes dryer vent in the side of a house.

    As Marvinator said, you need to come at this from both sides, using the pilot hole to make sure you're in the correct spot.  I've drilled many holes with a hole saw and this activity is normal.

    Mark and drill a single hole through the board where you want the hole. Use a drill bit that is smaller than the hole saw arbor (the thing that holds the hole saw centered).  Next, carefully cut the hole using the hole saw until it 'bottoms out'.  Now, go to the other side of the board and you'll see the hole that you drilled before.  Carefully insert the hole saw and begin sawing through this side until it cuts through - as you only need an additional 3/4 inch to cut the rest of the way through.   You may also need to use a rasp to even out the cuts from side to side, if needed for your project, but it will work.  I had to do this twice today, cutting into the side of my house once with a 3.5" hole saw and again with a 1" hole saw.  both times I did it just like above.
