Drilling through a door jamb

Post by stu_ck » Mon May 29, 2023 7:11 pm

Novice here and would appreciate any advice, please.

I need to drill a hole for a mains adapter for a video doorbell and would ideally like to make the hole within the red square on the jamb in the pic. I would really appreciate advice on whether this is a sensible idea and what kind of drill might be needed.

Thanks in advance!

Hi stu_ck,
I assume you are wanting to drill a hole for the power lead for the video doorbell and not to embed a mains adaptor in the door frame.
If it is cable only you will need a twist drill large enough for the cable to pass through, drill from the inside so you are half way across the door frame.
Regards S
