It is not the tool I would use to cut holes in MDF. You have not
indicated what size holes, how accurate, etc. A router will give
the best cuts. A jigsaw or hole saw will give decent cuts.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
DanG (remove the sevens)
tool is commonly called a rotozip here - basically a small frame plunge
router. They spin at very high RPM, just like a router. With an
appropriate bit, they will cut MDF, plastics, even sheet metal sandwiched
between wood, very cleanly. However, be aware that you need a screw hole in
the center of the circle to anchor the circle cutting attachment - not not
an issue if your end product is the hole, could be an issue if its the
Yes - I use my router on MDF regularly, and the high RPM combined with a
sharp hardwood bits cut very cleanly indeed, cleaner than a bandsaw cut.
You may have to buy some different 1/4" router bits (cutting tools),
depending on what comes with that kit. You can also use round-over, cove,
and other profiled cutters quite nicely on MDF as well.
