Basement remodeling – Cut drywall for a recessed light
I miss recessed light cut outs with near 100% accuracy when I’m installing a ceiling. Drywall guys use rotary tools and are beyond fast and accurate. I’ve even had those get away from me. So I invented a different approach.
Also, we’re teamed up with Home Depot on this and other projects. More tool info on the blog – http://bit.ly/2sU5HCJ
I use a line laser to mark the center of the device on the floor. Then I hang the sheet. Next I transfer the mark from the floor back up to the ceiling with the laser. I use my compass to swing a circle.
With the Dremel tool Home Depot sent me, I nibble away at the line until I can get the plug out. It’s not fast like an ace drywall guy, but it is waaaaay faster and easier than going back later with tape and compound and sanding.
