If I wanted to drill a hole in the ceiling should I drill from underneath or should I drill from the attic and downwards?
I just need to make a smallish hole for an aerial cable to go into. Any help gratefully accepted.
I think you should drill from underneath.
On a Makita advert you see a man drilling a hole from underneath and getting dust in his eye - hence the reason you should buy one of their drills that prevents this from happening.
Note that I have learned everything I know about DIY from adverts because I've never done any and I wouldn't watch an actual program about DIY.
Drill from the finished ceiling up.
Doing it the other way could result in an ugly breakthrough hole in the part you can see.
I knew all those years watching This Old House would bear fruit eventually.

Are you trying to drill into a joist or avoid a joist?
EDIT: whoops didn't read the question. Avoid, obviously!

as per clocker's advice. if you drill the other way, paint could crack etc... and look unsightly. good luck.
i think cheese lives in the attic and just wants to spy on hawt naked ladies ...or possibly men

Alien Blood is very efficient at making holes
