Prepare the tools needed for drilling brick wall. You will need an electric drill with a capacity of not less than 600 W, with the function of percussion. Brick has excellent resistance to static load, but does not like sudden shocks. A good option would be professional puncher if you have the opportunity to buy it or rent. When working with the instrument follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
Buy a pair of drills with a diameter of 6 mm and 8 mm, with a surfacing of pobedit (an alloy of cobalt and tungsten). Such cutting tool will not require pre-grinding, it is specially designed for very dense surfaces. Finally, if necessary, pick up at the hardware store dowel for solid bricks according to the size of the drill.
Consider the location of future openings in the brick wall. Carefully examine the surface you are going to have holes – it is important to exclude damage to the internal electrical wiring, water pipes and other "gotchas." The easiest way not to bump into the barrier during drilling is to test the surface of a metal detector.
If you don't have the special tool, check all sockets, switches and lamps. Usually they stretch the wires to a junction box on the vertical lines, although some electricians spend their and on the diagonal. In order to protect themselves and to detect recessed in the plaster of communication, the first 10-20 mm of the length of the holes do manually (e.g. with a screwdriver). Be very careful.
Mark the future hole core (special device for marking holes under drilling) to lock the drill in the first stages of work. Don't forget to wear protective goggles or welding shield to protect your eyes from dust and hard fragments of brick.
Drill into the brick wall, holding a working tool directly - otherwise the drill may break. To ensure uniform drilling of brick, gently apply pressure on the drill.
Even the most powerful machine will be experiencing heavy loads when working with a wall, so the drill must be cooled. To do this, immerse it in cold water, however carefully dry yourself electric mechanism.
If possible, try not to drill the brick and hardened cement in the seams. It will greatly simplify your task and leave the walls solid.
