Mag drills are super handy. I have one that sits most of the time but when it’s needed, it’s hard to beat.

I use annular cutters. I also use the same cutters on the lathe and mill when appropriate.
The annular cutters are a 3/4” Weldon and have two flat spots for securing via set screws. I like not having a chuck on the mag drill because it keeps things close.
This is a 1-13/16” Annular on a lathe using a MT4 adaptor for the tail stock.

Annular cutters used on a mill also come in handy.

Another example of cutters used on the mill.
Better than a hole saw.

I’ve been buying annular cutters for several years on eBay. I only but top name brands no imports.
They used to be plentiful and affordable. Not so much these days.
