I use a 1 inch saw (50.8mm) from Home Depot. Just make sure that you support the windshield from behind with a piece of wood.

I have a 1, 1.25, 1.75, 2, and a 2.25 inch holesaw.

The 1 inch is good for the glow plug hole. I use the 2.25 for the cooling/fueling hole.

I have the 2 inch from before they changed the rule to 60mm. I use the 2 and 1.75 now for the rear window.

WTH!? A holesaw? I use a regular circle cutter and if you don't have ones just draw a circle with your tire and cut it out with lexan scissors.

Holesaws are a lot easier than circle cutters.

agree with you. personally i still don't like imperial sizing after staying in USA for 5 years.
In collage. I use metric because I am science major. however when living in real world it is such a pain because I get so used to metric sizing and have difficult imagine item in imperial measurement. when the rest of the world already move into metric, why is USA still using imperial ?

Because we are too stubborn to move over to a better system. It is literally like trying to get people to learn a new language.
