    I saw and ad in a magazine months ago that was for a tool that allowed one person to cut ceilings for boots and gfrills for new installations. It was made of clear plexiglass. It allowed one to cut the holes and it caught all the saw dust and plaster scraps. One person could do this without the need for a tech to be in the attic cutting while anothe held a box to catch the scraps. I can't find the ad (naturally) when I need it.

    thanks

    Just be sure to put a scrap of cardboard in the bottom of it so you don't damage any of the wires, or whatever yours has it it.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Actually, you mark the ceiling for the boot size and cut along the lines with a sawsall.

    when you're a one man show that is rather hard to do. This tool eliminates the second guy.

    Yeah, I feel its more productive anyway for a 2 man crew to have a tool like this. I hope that someone finds it so I can get more info on it.
