Quote from: dayoff on October 21, 2012, 04:11:39 PMThanks for the quick replies everyone... any idea how much time to sink into the hammer drill method before determining whether or not it's a lost cause? I have about 20 minutes against the lock without any sign of anything (other than a new hole i'm creating...). I have a drill press so that sounds much more fun than feeling my arms vibrate from a hammer drill for a couple hours...but again, if it needs to be done for a couple hours to loosen things up, maybe that's worth the time in the long run...has anyone done the hammer drill with any success to know roughly how much time they had into it?

When I tried it, basically the bit wears down fairly quickly and then you're basically just transferring the vibration with the bit spinning rather freely, making a bit of a hole for itself...is it supposed to be lodged in the lock and not rotating fully? Almost sounds like I would want a flathead bit instead of a drilling bit
