Dry Core Cutters

As Used By Most Electricians and Plumbers

At United Diamond Tools, we carry a large range of dry core cutters. These are used for dry cutting concrete blocks, bricks, paving slabs, limestone, clay bricks and cured concrete with an ordinary drill. These are used by most plumbers, electricians, air conditioning installers and builders. They can be used dry with precautions (see below), which suits many tradespeople. We carry our range here in Perth, Western Australia, so there is no need to buy an expensive kit - just get the barrels you need. These barrels can be used water, however make certain no water can enter your electrical drill.
These are to be used in rotary mode only ie not hammer drill.

Note - Worksafe WA specify "Uncontrolled dry cutting (ie dry cutting without local exhaust ventilation on-tool) is non-compliant and WorkSafe inspectors will take enforcement action where this practice is identified." See more here

You will need:

  • A core barrel – see sizes available below
  • Adaptor – long (240mm) or short (120mm), to SDS Plus or hex
  • A pilot drill

The white collared dry core cutters are designed for concrete only, so you may run into problems (like binding, premature wear or loosing segments) when cutting reinforced concrete. Our new blue series will handle light reo (heavy reo will require a wet core drill and barrels).

We also carry dry core cutting kits like this one:

How to drill with your dry core cutters:

  • Wear eye and ear protection.
  • Do not select a diameter of barrel that is too big for your electric drill to handle
  • Dry drilling produces lots of dust, which is very hazardous, so use a suitable vacuum to collect it and wear a suitable dust mask (PAPR recommended).
  • Ideal drilling speed is 1000 - 2000 rpm. (The bigger diameter, the slower the speed).
  • Do not use the percussion or hammer mode.
  • Can be used with water, but ensure no water can enter you electric drill ie do not drill overhead with water.
  • First, drill a small hole with the pilot drill bit so it can guide the core barrel. Then mount the core barrel.
  • When the core barrel has started to drill correctly, remove the pilot drill bit and continue the drilling.
  • Make sure that the barrel does not overheat. Check regularly and clear away slugs frequently.
  • Make sure you do not overload your electric drill, or force it into the hole so much that the motor risks burning out
  • When deeper holes are required, drill in two or more steps. After drilling as far as you can, remove the core by breaking it. Then use an extension (sold by UDT) to carry on drilling.
  • Pay close attention when hand held drilling, as the core drill may jam in the material. This can result in your electric drill motor dangerously spinning out of your hands.
  • Note - "Uncontrolled dry cutting (ie dry cutting without local exhaust ventilation on-tool) is non-compliant and WorkSafe inspectors will take enforcement action where this practice is identified." See more on Worksafe W.A. website here
