First of all, I finally got it in okay, so I didn’t ruin the door. But I’m gonna have a lot more of these to do, and I don’t understand what went wrong.
I made a little cardboard template and figured out exactly where I wanted the hole. Taped. Marked. Held my drill level with the little bubble. Drilled a hole using a bit just a bit bigger than my knob screw, thinking a little extra wiggle room would make things easier.
Screw doesn’t go in.
Okay, so I miscalculated? Try with the next bigger drill bit.
Finally I drill a hole that’s beyond a doubt big enough and it still won’t go in! So I pounded it in with a hammer.
WTF, y’all? The hole didn’t really seem… clear, maybe? Maybe I needed to up the drill speed or something?
