Cutting a 6" hole in wood lath plaster ceiling


I'm looking to put in two 6" cans in a bedroom with plaster and wood lath.

Any suggestions for what tool to use for the cut?

Cutting a 6" hole in wood lath plaster ceiling


I bought a Rotozip. One pass with a carbide tile bit to cut the plaster and another pass with a wood bit to cut the lath. Worked well.
