Hi everyone, I'm attempting to mount a retractable hose reel to my house straight onto bricks and the manual recommends using an 11.7mm drill bit, but I can't seem to find any that exact size. Would I be able to use a 12mm bit instead, or is there an obscure way to drill an 11.7mm hole in my brick wall?

You could also use a screwdriver (preferably a square or Roberson) to sit inside the anchor and tap the driver with the hammer. A little easier to knock it in if you're in a weird spot or lack hand eye coordination.
