can light saw

I've got a mid 1950's home with plaster ceilings, and I'm about to put in 6" kitchen can lights, about 6 or so. There is no steel in the plaster, looks to be applied plaster over something like cement board; about 1 1 /4" thick total. Is a bimetal hole saw going to work, or should I invest in a hole pro, or ??

Your bet bet is carbide grit hole saws. They are not cheap but they will do what you need. The other option would be carbide bits and a Roto-zip.
