Thread: Cutting holes in thick uPVC pipe caps

Spade might (slight chance) work, but I don't think an auger will. Both of these have fly cutters that score the perimeter, and then with a hand plane (wood) or chisel action, shear the fibers. The plastic doesn't doesn't have the fiber structure. Neither of these will cut decently on end grain wood. Try a wood chisel, to shave off thin slices of the plastic, difficult.
