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 enables users to cut square holes in seconds, with minimal dust and absolute precision.
With 250,000 electricians* in the UK cutting around three holes each working day, there are almost 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, and comes complete with built-in spirit levels and a height gauge for ease of use.
Michael Sebhatu, designers of the QUADSAW, said: “This is the first product in the world that can truly drill a square hole,” said QUADSAW designer 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.”
Since launching, QUADSAW has gained coverage with the following publications and more:
– Financial Times
– Popular Science
– Popular Mechanics
– Gizmag/New Atlas
– GI Gadgets
The QUADSAW is available to pre-order now, priced at £199 (inc VAT), from Quadsaw.com
