Help with shelving project please
I bought steel adjustable shelf standards which are used for bookcases. I want to use them to make shelving in an extremely narrow closet. The mounting holes in the standards are too small to take a #6 wood screw, which is the most narrow size screw with any length that I could find at Home Depot.
What do you think of the idea of my drilling the holes larger to accommodate the #6 screws? Is it possible, and is this something an amateur like me can do? Do I need a certain type of drill bit to drill through steel?
I assume the standards are designed to be put up with nails against wood, but I am working with what I'm pretty sure is wallboard (possibly plaster) and I want to use plastic plugs and screws.
