:> My 1923 house has a stucco exterior that is very tough to drill into. Any
:I have the same thing. I have been able to drill holes using masonry
:bits. These are like regular drill bits except they have a piece of
:carbide at the tip that can penetrate the stucco. A regular corded
:drill should do. You could also try a spade bit of the type used for
:drilling tile. Be patient while drilling, it takes a little while. --
I made out fine with a cordless (12 volt) with a TG bit.
