my biggest disaster was putting up some shelves in the toy room years ago they looked great for a day then the next day l heard a crash they were all on the floor the plugs l put in the wall were not long enough so they did not hold the weight of the toys so hence my disater needed a bigger drill bit to make bigger holes to hold them up

the drill could have saved me
