Thanks for your insight! Did you experience the brick breaking (outside of the 4")?Emporium wrote: ↑Nov 3rd, 2017 7:09 pmWhen I wanted to make a 4" hole in a wall to run a dryer vent, I just used a 1/2" bit, drilled a dozen or so holes around the perimeter, and then used the chisel to break away everything in between. A 1/2" Bosch bulldog Xtreme bit, went through 12" of reinforced concrete, like butter, even with an el-cheapo SDS plus drill I picked up from Rona. OK, not as clean as having used a proper 4" core bit, but any decent core bit for that concrete would have cost me well over $250, and not sure it would survive the reinforced concrete. At least taking the multiple hole approach, once I broke the material in the center of the circle, I had 1 piece of rebar, which I used my sawzall with a bimetal blade to cut through.
Initially I tried using my Makita HP2010N (which is no slouch typically) and it was too painful.

I wasn't in brick in my case. It was on a reinforced concrete wall. So there was no breaking outside of where I drilled.
