Trying to put up some blinds, but when I'm drilling into the wall it'll only go in ~2cm. We are using the stone drill part. Any help would be appreciated.
There is either a metal lintel or similar behind it or the drill isn’t powerful enough. Is it on “hammer” setting? That may also help
Also check the basics
Is drill bit new / sharp
Is drill set to hammer an rotating clockwise from your viewpoint
either a steel lintel or concrete lintel need a heavy duty percussion drill and a really good masonary bit
Try a metal bit there will be a steel there
