As a child I liked to punch a hole through the wall for my punching bag.
Punching bags are made from PVC, a material similar to that used in the construction of a skateboard. They’re very durable, and the holes are reinforced, so they can support the weight of a great many people. A wall mount is a great way to hang a punching bag. Most wall mounts are made using a special tool that will allow you to screw on the wall mount to the wall using a drill and drill bit.
The punch-and-screw approach is quite easy to use, but of course there are a few other ways you can make wall mounts that are a little more challenging. Since using a drill with a drill bit on a wall mount is rather difficult I recommend you use a screwdriver with a small drill bit and use the wall mount for your punching bag. This is the best way to get a wall mount that can support a heavy punching bag.
Punching bag wall mounts aren’t exactly new, but I’ve found that the wall mounts I’ve made with a drill and drill bit are quite sturdy.
Ive been working with wall mounts for about 10 years now, and have found that the ones Ive made are pretty much the same. As you can see in the pictures below, Ive done them with a few variations, but basically its done the same way. Drill the hole to the correct length, and then drill the hole. The drill should go all the way through the hole, and then you simply tighten the screw. It should all be done in one long and continuous motion.
The drill bit is the part that you can see at the bottom of the picture. Its used to drill the hole to the correct length. When you drill the hole, you’ll have to keep it from rotating and it will be easier to make the holes.
The punch can be a little tricky, but if you just hammer a few times, it should start working. Then you can just keep doing it until it stops.
You’ll need to make sure that the punch/drill bit you use is large enough to make the hole, but not so large that it can get stuck. A screwdriver is also a good idea.
One of the advantages of punch drilling is that it’s quicker and easier than screw drilling. You don’t have to worry about drilling a hole that’s too large, and you can even use a drill with a bit that’s the exact size of the punch drill.
The drill bit is the only part of the wall that doesnt have to be machined to size.
