I am suppose to install some can lights in an older church. The ceiling is covered with 3/4" tongue and groove flooring. What I was wanting to know is would a rotorzip tool work for cutting 6" to 8" square holes in the ceiling. If it would work, what type of rotorzip would work best. I have never used one of these tools before and was just hunting some advice.

I agree with the jigsaw, just make sure of your location so you don't saw into any supporting member. Would you have the option of installing "old work" round can lighting? If so, you can buy a 6 1/4" hole cutting bit for your drill, make a nice round cut, and perform the retrofit. Bit will cost about $30, but will make your day go alot better, especially if you have quite a few to cut.
