Because the tip is brand new or you don't have a magnetic ti. Try tilting the gun a little sideways before you pull it away from the screw. Sorta like tilting a sweating glass a little bit before you lift it off of a coaster so that the coaster doesn't stick to the bottom of the glass.

Just pull it out. If it is rusted stuck, get a pair of pliers on there and give it a yank. It will come out.

You have to replace the entire depth guage assembly (the front plastic pieces where the bit driver is). Unfortunatly Bosch does not make the individual pieces for this gun. Any Bosch service center will be able to supply you with this piece

I don't think a Dremel has enough power to do what your after. However there is a larger rotary tool made by several different company's mine is made Dewalt works great fairly inexpensive and will do what you need.

The stud finders are not expensive but you can sometimes use a magnet to find the nails. Also you might try shining a flashlight across the wall. The putty put over the nails will sometimes show up. Last resort is to tap on the wall and try and hear the areas that have support under them.

5/8 of an inch is recommended. You may be able to get away with 1/2 inch if you don't really care, but i would check with the building inspector first

you tape and mud the joints after hanging the drywall

You can either measure up from the floor or the piece of drywall you just hang and then measure over from the wall or the piece of drywall you just hang or you can put the drywall in place and I ball behind it and Mark with a pencil and then cut it out with a dremel tool and you should be good from there. You might want to use a keyhole saw or a roto zip and a Rotozip is the best way to do it but it takes a little practice in order to control it

hi there.
Sink A Self-Drilling (Threaded) Anchor
  1. Mark your hanging point with a pencil.
  2. Tap the pointed tip of the anchor into the wall with a hammer.
  3. Once the tip is in the drywall, with a screwdriver, screw the anchor in until it's flush to the wall.

Drywall sheets are 4 feet wide. Thus, each foot of a drywall sheet contains 4 square feet. Divide 10,000 by 4 = 2500 linear feet of drywall sheets. Add 5 to 10% for wastage.

Sorry for the paint peeling and bubbles. It's not the drywall tape that has bubbles... right? Paint can react like this when it is applied over a sanded wall that has not been cleaned and still has a layer of drywall dust on it. When primer is applied to the wall, it is best to use something to push the paint on the surface to combine the dust with the paint. This could be done using a paint pad but should be more than just rolled on. The paint needs to mix with the dust and stir it in with the paint so the paint get under the dust. You might try thinning the paint a little to allow for better attraction to the wall. So now how do you repair this? By scraping the loose paint off and starting with a new coat. You know. it could also just be bad paint.

First, insulation is put in on exterior walls with specific R ratings, drywall is just screwed to studs then bathrooms it's a little different. There's different options for material backboard that are waterproof. Some are fiberglass then are finished in resin sealant
