Get it Right the First Time
When drilling a hole, it’s important not to go too deep. Sometimes you only need a certain depth, but it can be impossible to gauge how far you’ve gone with your drill bit. On the other hand, if you go too far into the wall, you risk ruining your project, and that’s hard to recover from.
If you know how far in you need to go, you can use this hack to make sure you don’t accidentally mess up. First, measure the object you’re inserting against your drill bit, and mark it on your drill with a small piece of colored tape. That way, when it’s in the wall, you will be able to see when to stop.
