    Drilling straight

    Thanks i did do the latter. Questions: When drilling through plaster board and then brick, do I start on drill mode and then switch to hammer mode once I hit brick? With the pilot hole should go through the wall as far as I would with the main drill bit? Thanks

    Drilling straight

    I will try going all the way through next with a pilot hole next time. I did do a pilot hole just to mark the screw holes but didn’t go all the way through. Keep the advise coming guys if there’s anything new.

    Maybe that’s what I need is some more experience. Anyone need any holes drilling? Lol

    Drilling straight

    Masnory drill bit it does have hammer action but I was using the drill mode. As I thought the hammer action is more for chiselling bits off.

    Drilling straight

    Just trying to drill a straight hole. Not sure if it’s because I’m drilling holes just above my head height is why it’s going wonky. Meaning I can’t get as much power behind the drill. This is what I drilled in holes for today.

    Drilling straight

    Hi Guys Anyone got any tips on how to keep cordless drill bit straight when drilling through mansory (1930’s Brick)? I just can’t seem to drill straight, there must be a knack. The drill doesnt have one of those side handles. I cant wait to see all the sarcasit and funny comments. Sort of asking for them aren’t I! Should have posted this this in the jokes section lol

    E39 540i saloon - Jap import

    Does anyone reckon the e39 would appreciate in value for more than £11k in the next few years, as I am very tempted due to its condition.

    Insurance Advice

    Thanks guys - as its already a sinking ship, my question is... should we just make the most out of a bad situation by at least calming on the mrs car insurance to have a car now repaired? As her premiums have already increased, or will they increase by a lot more if we do claim on her insurance? Or would I save more money in the long run pay for the repairs myself.

    Insurance Advice

    My Mrs was involved in car accident last year. Because of a lack of evidence and the other party now saying they have a witness (which they didn't at the scene of the accident), insurance have just admitted liability on my Mrs Behalf. We have tried really hard to fight it, but just feel like its not worth it anymore, because of the stress and my Mrs has already lost two years NCB because of this, so her premiums have gone up, which were trying to avoid. We have delayed getting her car repaired, because I didn't want to claim on her insurance, but since we have now lost the claim and her NCB, will she be any worse off if she now claims on her own insurance to have her car repaired as she was fully comp at the time? As I presume the worse has already happened now, where she has lost her NCB, and her premium won't go up by much if she does claim, as I feel its unfair for us to have to pay for the repair.
