This is my general wall drilling advice.
Please wear appropriate PPE.
eg. ear defenders/plugs and safety glasses.
Please check for pipes and wires.
Walls can often be different materials in different places. So, tap the wall with your knuckle, where you’re going to drill, and start drilling gently.
Having drilled 1000s of holes in most types of wall, there are some materials which simply destroy drill bits.
Hammer drills are different to impact drivers, which make light work of screws, including extraction. I’ve heard that you can use impact drivers for drilling but I haven’t tried it yet. You might need ‘impact rated’ drill/driver bits.
Using good quality drill bits and the following steps will help:
‘Gently’ make a small dent/hole with nail/screw and hammer, to help prevent the drill bit jumping all over the place when you start drilling.
Start with the smallest ‘quality/professional’ masonry or multi-construction bit you can find (Bosch, Dewalt, etc).
I had a fairly expensive 3mm until it got destroyed by an inconsiderate wall of type unknown. I’ve now settled on a much cheaper 3.5mm from FFX
Start on non-hammer and progress to hammer, if necessary.
Increase the hole size eg. 5/6mm, then 8mm, then 10mm. Again starting with non-hammer as it may become unnecessary as you progress up in size.
On concrete or other super hard materials, a more powerful drill will make the job a lot faster/easier.
eg. a 36v SDS made light work of some new bricks whereas an 18v struggled. Also a mains powered 500w or above should work well.
