    Yep fair comment Robert
    Not sure why I said ‘easiest way’

    Agreed, easiest way would be a 20mm holesaw

    I think it was as I used this method last w end as swapped over a couple of fluorescent battens for LED fittings for a mate of mine

    Cable entry point didn’t line up with new fittings so pilot hole, stepdrill, 20mm grommet

    Main reason as I haven’t got a 20mm holesaw !

    Got point though

    Step and cone drills are superb for enlarging holes, for example an imperial conduit hole in an old box up to metric or making a 20 into a 25.

    I might have a spare for you.

    Ha ha indeed, looks like you’ve got a few 20mm spares ..... and then some ! Good quality brand as well

    I’ve got a couple of holesaw sets and different size arbours for pipes, downlights, etc, but nothing as small as 20mm - I’m diy and simply not had the need so far

    Picked up a step drill set from Aldi some years ago and it cuts metal and plastic brilliantly, that’s what I’ve used when I’ve cut pattress boxes and such like for cable entry

    Did look at the Bosch Predator holesaws, they seem good quality as well but so far, couple of cheapie sets have been ok ..... but then I’m not using them every day
