I've been into woodworking for a while, but recently started
carving marble. So, not really a painting, but same idea-- I've got a
1.25" thick marble relief that weighs about 80-90 lbs.
Can this be safely hung on the wall? I'm guessing yes,
absolutely. I consider that we have a railing bannister that was HELD
INTO DRYWALL WITH A BUTTERFLY NUT, that held my 200 lbs! Well, for
years at any rate; just repaired it properly this morning with a
So if I make sure to hold it with brackets, into studs, at the
four corners; there's no risk of ripping the studs from the wall?
Secondly; going back to college in three weeks. Thinking of
getting my own drill; they're just so handy for hanging shelves,
building bedframes, you name it. We have a dorm-owned circular saw
that stays in the basement, but the communal cordless drill is always
missing. SO-- is Delta worth it? Is ryobi decent? black&decker not
too too cheap? What do you recommend?
At home we have a 14V black&decker, and it mostly works well.
Very occasionally it lacks the torque necessary. More importantly;
the batteries run out very quickly, which is incredibly irritating.
So unless technology is likely to advance rapidly, should I get a
drill to last decades? What would that drill be? I have some
birthday money; figure I'll shop craigslist for something used.
