Postbox Opening


Postby skibum » Thu Apr 24, 2008 10:38 am

I need to make an opening in a 9" porch wall (no cavity) about 900mm by 400mm to accommodate a 'through-the-wall' postbox. Can anyone recommend an appropriate SDS hammer-only tool that would be meaty enough for the job, but not too pricey?

Oops! Meant to quote 400mm by 300mm.

Hello, just use a pencil to draw the area you want to remove, then use a hammer drill with a good masonry bit to stitch drill out the bricks, (you don't need to buy an sds drill, just a drill with a hammer action on it!) then use a hammer and cold chisel to carefully breakout. Good luck.
