Outdoor camera stucco mount

In doing a little research, it seems the recommended 7/64" masonry drill bit size is rather difficult to find anywhere. Is there another more common size that would work as well?

Hi @wagmd ,

 

Do you have a preference of a specific store? I was able to find the correct size on online retailers, like Home Depot and Amazon.

 

You can probably get away with using a smaller drill bit, and drilling multiple times. But the correct tool for the job will get the cleanest result.

@davey_d​ sorry if this is a repeat post because the website wanted me to re-register my name and then kicked me out.

Regarding the 7/64" drill bit size, I have looked at Lowes, Home Depot, Ace hardware, and Amazon and have not been able to find a 7/64" drill bit that is specifically for masonry. Perhaps the brand of drill bit you found does not say "masonry."

Please post examples of product numbers and vendors of acceptable drill bits so we can order them.

Thanks

You mentioned using a smaller drill bit size, but I cannot find a smaller bit size that is specific to masonry or brick.

thanks

Davey, respectfully, your comment is not helpful. I cannot find a single 7/64" masonry drill bit anywhere and I just spent two hours looking. Please provide an actual example of one that we can order, so that we aren't all stuck with cameras we cannot install on the side of our house.
