adding heat ducts to existing plenum
 
I am remodeling an existing finished basement and want to add two heat ducts in the drop ceiling and am not sure how to add the new ducts to the plenum. Is there a special cutting device to cut out a perfect circle to add the duct?

Hole for new duct
 
A simple way is to trace the pipe on the plenum with a marker then

drill a couple of holes in it then

use tin snips to follow the line.

Make sure to wear good gloves to protect your hands.

If you don't have any other branches, but how far are you running the ducts?

Will you have to use a lot of elbows to get from the plenum to "point b"?

Where are you adding the return, so the furnace can get the extra air you want for those supplies.
