The garage gets a tad warm due to what i have running in there. i do have a 6inch hole which i used for Aircon, without the aircon attached its a nice was to get air into the garage.
After running the car for a bit in the garage it nice to have some fume extractor, or use it for heat extraction.

Planning the place to put the vent mainly depended on height, as higher up is where the hot air would tend to be. Also somewhere to place it where it has power and not obstructiing anything else.


Got my SDS drill ready with a 107mm core drill bit.

Started off good, but then the hammer action packed up. This was probably caused by the 150mm hole I drilled last time, it struggled and greese was pouring out the chuck.

Had to purchase another drill. This one I has was 2J, and its very powerful, Sarahs dad used to borrow it as it easily drilled holes in his concrete house.
The new drill was from Screwfix was in stock, and its hammer action is 8J.

Wow, its easily blasted through, I had to hold it back It was eager to take out anything in its path.

Poked thought a 100mm pipe.

Flappy vent added.

Looks pretty good on the inside too. All wired into a Kasa unti, so I can turn it on and off from my phone.

it's done know but if theres a next time dont use it on hammer it knackers the drill plus can take the teeth of the core drill and if you hire a core drill they charge for wear or damage ,
