comment How do I hang curtain rods?
Accepting this one. Some of the anchors came loose so I bought new screws, better anchors, new bits, and a pack of stud solvers as plan B. Seems like the better anchors + new bits worked. (By "better" I mean the old ones were mostly smooth and the new ones had little "teeth" on them.)

comment How do I hang curtain rods?
In this case it's an 80" sliding door and I'm having the most trouble with the center; the edges just needed a little pressure to get into the wood. What kind of stud's usually in the center of those?

If it's a nail-plate it's been in the center stud of 4 separate windows/doorways over which I've hung curtains! Whatever it is, it's too tough for those Stud Solver anchors to get through; they were my favorites on previous projects though.

comment What is my drill hitting and not penetrating when I hang curtains?
Sorry, been really busy at work and haven't had the chance to stop by. I'll ask if anyone's around when I pay the rent tomorrow. I don't like leaving a question with no accepted answer. Plus, I've got two more sets of curtains to hang!

comment What is my drill hitting and not penetrating when I hang curtains?
I'm not sure if it's timber frame, hadn't thought of brick, concrete, or steel. I managed to get it up because the anchors didn't need to go in deep enough to make it a problem, but it confused me that something hard was there. I'll ask the landlord and see if I can figure out what's behind the plaster; right now the curtains are up so I can't poke around in the hole to see for myself.

That's an interesting thought. I'll have to ask the landlord about it tomorrow.
