Will this go through a brick wall? Wanting to run some cable from the garage

Just read that it does. Any recommendations on the best bits for going through a wall?

If the comments section isn't for discussion about the item and associated accessories then what is it for?

I'd be surprised if people buy the drill and then pop in here to say "thanks guys, love watching this turn, if only it had some other use!"

I am a complete novice at diy and appreciate the help I get from people like DrAcula1. Google is helpful when you know what you are talking about/looking for.

Not to worry, this may be my last post anyway as I believe there are electricals running through my walls.

You can check for the presence of cables and pipes with a device like this:

The masonry bit you need depends on the thickness of the cable and depth of the wall. For example to drill a 10mm hole through a 150mm wall you will need something like this:

Don't worry too much about 'electricals'. You'd have to be really unlucky to find one. Stand in a bucket of cold water just to be on the safe side.

Thanks. It's awful how bad I am at this stuff, it used to be a call to my granddad or dad, both died within a month of each other last October/November, my brother is just as crap as me at diy haha.

I do appreciate all the help, it's just Ethernet cables I plan on running through via the garage as that lines up with the lounge and my computer is in the utility room, you can see I make appropriate use of all the diy space available to me.

Thanks again all

If you just want Ethernet then you could consider power line adapters or a wifi range extender. No drilling required

I think with about a tenner more,the Lidl parkside or Aldi workzone 1500w sds drill would make a way better choice.

You can use this on a car battery and inverter if necessary and far superior to 1.5 amp rechargeable drills

Thanks. Still have a few sitting around, I get an incredibly good speed with my wireless adaptor for downloading etc 8meg down a second but the steam link is poor over wifi and the wiring in my house doesn't offer anything good via power line adaptors

I use the Dewalt 'extreme masonry' drill bits, they're some if the best. always drill without putting too much pressure on the drill, let the bits cut at their own rate rather than you pushing hard which will blunt the drill bit more quickly.

I have been struggling putting blinds up in my flat, exremly tough brick. I borrowed this drill from a friend and bought this bit set and it was like cutting through butter compared to my 18v Makita drill.
