...on drilling concrete. Got any? I just need a few inch and a half deep holes to put in some posts for steps on my front porch. I've got a regular drill - nothing fancy there - and masonry bits. It seems to be chewing through the bits because I would make fair progress but then go nowhere. I got a special bit that looks like the tip is made out of a different type of metal, but that stopped working after a while too.
Is there any trick to this? Is it just a matter of getting a drill with a hammering function? (mine doesn't have that).
Are masonry nails useful? I don't have one but I could get one of those. When I started I was worried I might crack the concrete, but after a while at this I'm not worried about that anymore!
