"Putting holes in drywall with ease:"

From: Ken Depue - CodeElectric@worldnet.att.net

If you've got to put a lot of holes in drywall for inserting toggle bolts, use a 10- to 18-inch piece of 1/2" or 3/4" EMT. Cut one end at a 45-degree angle. Strike the sqaure end with a hammer, and in a few swings you'll have a nice, neat, round hole. It's easy to carry around all day (lighter than a cordless drill/driver), saves money by not dulling drill bits and hole saws, and is quick and easy to replace if you destroy or lose it. I've put up scores of flourescent lights in motels with this method.
