Engineering brick – Help
Not for drilling one long hole, and if you’ve done the stich drilling and bolstering this job’s a sight easier!.
A drill and a bit won’t cost much for a day’s hire. Local, single branch places are usually a load cheaper than the likes of HSS etc. who are generally targeting the corporate market.
edit – if you ring a hire shop up and tell them what you are doing, they will tell you what the options are.Posted 3 years ago
So Dutch Towers new garden is almost done but, as is normal with the fairer sex, another job has just cropped up and I need help from the collective:
Outside tap now required and while the plumbing side of things isn’t an issue, drilling a 16mm hole through 2 courses of engineering brick is…last time I did this (40mm waste pipe moved 150mm left) I remember being at it almost half a day. This was stitch drilling and bolster chisel method. Not pretty!!
This time however I have a much smaller hole required but I want to know whats the best method for this?
I only have an old 600w hammer drill which I don’t think will take another bashing at engineering brick as the bearings sound rough as **** as it is.Posted 3 years ago
