DIY Tip Of The Day

Drilling

Before you go drilling into your walls it can be handy to know exactly where to drill. A stud finder / metal detecting tool can be very useful. If for example you're putting up heavy shelves, you'll want to fix them to the studs - the wooden battens that secure plasterboard walls. Similarly, there are things you won't want to drill into such as plumbing and electrics. The metal detector will find pipes and wires saving you any nasty shocks!
