I hate to beg but I'd really appreciate some help as my Dad is coming down in a couple of days to help me and I'd like to have everything ready.
I went to Home Depot and spoke with a guy in tool rental and they have a very large hammer drill with I believe a 1/2" chuck. With it comes a bunch of hole saws made to go through mortar/brick etc. My problem is I will need to drill the center pilot hole from the basement, through the rim joist and out through the brick to give me a center point for the brick hole saw. What kind of bit will let me drill through brick? I have a 4" hole saw for wood that I'm going to use for the rim joist.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
