in need of borrowing a drill to install a lock

  1. Strange request here but I thought maybe someone might be kind enough to assist me in making my bike a little harder to steal.
    Have going to get a chain and latch thingy to bolt my bike down when at home, however I don't have a drill available at my place without going all the way to Ballarat and dealing with my mother.
    I'm guessing a hammer drill will be required to still into the concrete not sure if there is a PowerPoint available close by (Will look better when I get home again) but I do have a generator that should be capable to run a drill.
    I live in Camberwell melbourne if there was someone close by it would be greatly appreciated.

  2. I Can probably help, do you have the appropriate sized bit? I am in Greensborough.

  5. Wow so many quick replies thanks heaps everyone.
    Unfortunately today didn't go as planned and I didn't get around to picking up the anchor. Only found out yesterday I am allowed to install one didnt want to buy one if bodycorp wouldn't allow me to install it.
    Next chance I have to get it won't be until Tuesday after Easter as I am assuming everything is shut all Easter weekend.
    I will go down to bunnings and purchase required drill bit.
    Had a better look today and is no PowerPoint available downstairs so either very long extension cord or I think my generator should be able to run a drill.
  6. If it works in with a day I'm in the area I'll have a drill bit and a cordless hammer drill to do it. But it will just need to work in with when I'm not far away.
  7. If you get stuck, I have masonry bits in a wide range of sizes, multiple hammer drills and lots (yes, lots) of extension leads. (But I don't have a generator, should I be feeling inadequate? LOL). I am further east at Croydon, but travel through and near Camberwell fairly regularly. Won't cost you much, will work for beer*. Post up if you need the help.

    * Not much beer required as I don't drink very much of it!
  8. I have a hammer drill, a few unbroken masonary bits and extension cords. What size bit do you need?

    Are you in an apartment? If so do you need a permit to drilling slabs? Builders sometime run conduits in slab. If you are going in past 50mm this may be an issue.
