I just drilled some bricks this Summer to install some of those hooks. All I used was a normal drill with a masonry bit. No issues at all drilling into the bricks.
Before hammer drills, we used a star drill. Austinloop will know exactly what I'm talking about.Ma Bell was even "nice" enough to buy us handles for them.--If someone refers to herself / himself as a "guru", they probably aren't.
^^^ ThisI have one of these in the toolbox.
