It seems that my drill bits are often a bit too short to drill the full pilot hole to cover the whole length of my screw. The screws I use aren't particularly thin, they are regular width.
I fix this by redoing the drilling in my secondary board. But that is annoying, I just want to clamp everything down and do the pilot hole through the two boards in one go.
Is this normal that the drill bits are a bit short to cover the length of a screw? It's just a vanilla Bosch drill and the drill bits that came with it.
I have seen special long length drill bits but I don't want to go out and buy exotic drill bits if there is a simpler solution, or brands with slightly longer drill bits, I miss just a tiny bit of length, not much.
