Drill Setting and Drilling into Masonry

Postby Wobag » Thu Oct 25, 2018 10:35 am

Im using my dads drill, which is an old hammer drill, for which I dont have a manual.

Now Im a rookie at this sort of thing, past the odd shelf. However Im guessing the switch on top that says T / I is for Torque and Impact?

Having difficulty drilling to put up a roller blind in a window recess, so maybe its a concrete lintel or something? I have what I think is a decent masonry bit, but I could buy another.

Any thoughts on the right setting or what else I could try.
