But hammer drills can be had brand-new for a couple of hundred Dollars, and probably even cheaper second hand in Aplui Street, ShamShuiPo, and masonry drills of several sizes are but a few Dollars each.
My "tip" when drilling thro' walls etc:
START with a small drill as a "Guide hole".
Never with the biggest drill you reckon you need ! (And have a few spare small drills in case of "accidents" <Grin>
I am a bit concerned reading this - we just signed a 2 year tenancy in Sai Kung for a village house (just outside Che Keng Tuk village) and are moving there from the UK next month. My husband will be travelling a fair bit, so I am hoping that all this talk of burglaries is an over-exaggeration!
I live in a village house and my family have lived in the same house/village for decades. Never been burgled.
Here is a good tip, make nice with the neighbours. In my village, they look out for unfamiliar faces and have been known to question people who loiter around. Maybe doesn't work as well for larger villages that have a higher turnover though.
