How do you bore concrete?
Similarly, can you use a regular drill to drill into concrete?
You can drill holes in concrete with a regular drill. You will need a bit more patience and a wider array of drill bits when using a regular drill, but the procedure is the same for drilling in concrete regardless if you use a regular drill or a hammer drill.
Beside above, how do you drill a hole in concrete block? A standard drill with a drill bit engineered for wood or metal is not up to this job.
- Select a drilling spot on the block.
- Attach the masonry bit to the hammer drill.
- Set the drill's selector switch to hammer mode.
- Press the tip of the drill bit firmly against the surface of the block and press the drill's trigger.
In this way, do you need a hammer drill to drill into concrete?
Hammer drills and rotary hammers are both excellent for drilling masonry. Sure, you can drill a hole or two in a concrete block with a regular drill and a masonry bit, but you'll want to step it up a notch if you have a whole bunch of holes to drill into 50-year-old concrete.
Can a 12v drill go through concrete?
Drilling a hole into concrete is best accomplished with a drill that you plug into a wall outlet. But if you do not have a corded drill, or if the concrete is in a location where no electricity is available, you may need to complete the job with a 12 volt drill.
