I need to run some network cabling for a camera but I’m very close to a corner and I don’t want to do more damage than good. It’s very tight so I can’t get there in the attic, but if I could drill up through, I have fish tape and rods to get it where I need it.
Well if you are asking if it can be done the answer is yes. To have the best chance of success move ~1-1/2 inch away from the wall left or right so you don’t hit a rafter or joist and close to the exterior siding. When I do this I drill at an angle , it hits the top plate the way I drill but makes the pull easier and not as sharp of a bend on the cable coming out and following the wall to soffit can look like fat calking after painted if trying to hide the cable.
