Know Your Limits

Two holes a day. What can I say?

That's all I can do. How about you?


I'm installing grab bars and shower curtain rods.

I already burned out one drill.

      Geesh this porcelain tile is thick and is a nightmare to drill through. With most ceramic tile, once you get through the top glaze, drilling becomes easy. With porcelain you have 3/8" inch of hardness to drill through.

      I bought glass and tile bits but they wouldn't even scratch it, let alone get a hole started.

      I bought diamond bits this morning at $15 each

It's still slow going, around 40 minutes for each hole.

      You have to focus and keep pressure on the drill the entire time plus, keep the bit at 150 rpm's.


I have 6 more holes to do. I'm counting the days.


Your quit. You need to know your limits.

Don't put yourself in impossible situations.

Know your limits and build your days.
