Can a spiral saw be used to cut electrical outlets?

When you use a spiral saw to cut outlets, there’s no need for precise measuring. Simply mark the approximate center of each electrical box or other opening on the face of the drywall and cut them out after the sheet is loosely attached to the framing. Before you hang the drywall, turn off the power to the electrical boxes.

Select the correct blade for stock being cut and allow it to cut steadily.
