Tip -- Drilling holes in the ceiling without a mess.

What a mess whenever you have to drill either small or large holes in the ceiling.

A nifty trick is to take a fairly flexible and transparent food container, put you bit right through the bottom and into the drill.

Hold the container low to sight your entry point, then slide it up tight to the ceiling and drill.

All the dust is collected in the cup.

Use deep cups for spade bits, shallow cups for short twist bits.
