The world’s first tool that can drill a square hole has been launched.
For years, electricians have struggled with rulers, pencils and handsaws to cut holes in walls for electrical sockets and other boxes. This method lacks accuracy, creates mess, and can take over five minutes to cut a single hole (including ‘making good’).
QUADSAW solves this problem thanks to its unique four-blade technology, which enablesusers to cut square holes in seconds, with minimal dust and absolute precision.
No marking up or measuring is required when using the QUADSAW as it has built-in spirit levels and a height gauge for ease of use. It is the ideal addition to any toolbox for both professionals and DIY users.
With 250,000 electricians* in the UK cutting around three holes each working day, there arealmost 200 million square holes cut every year. QUADSAW could save 16 million hours of labour and over £320 million per annum** in the UK alone, and much more globally.
The QUADSAW is compatible with power drills and most battery drills.
“This is the first product in the world that can truly drill a square hole,” said QUADSAWdesigner Michael Sebhatu, co-founder of London-based start-up Genius IP. “The uniqueness of it is not just that it cuts the hole perfectly, but that it does so with total ease and minimal mess, making life easier for anyone who is using it.”
Ean Brown, director and co-founder of Genius IP, added: “When I first saw the QUADSAWin action, I knew it was a winner. It cuts a perfect square hole and it means there’s no ‘making good’, so when you’ve finished there is no returning to the building site to plaster or fix things up. The amount of time and money that this tool can save is remarkable.”
QUADSAW is available to pre-order now, priced at £199 (inc VAT), from Quadsaw.com
