Instructions for use Use a 6.8-7.2 mm drill for drilling, but you will obtain the most precise drill-hole using a 7.1 mm drill (available additionally). Drive the longest end of the tap into the tree. If the bark is smooth — the drill-hole should be ~5 cm deep, if the bark is thick — the drill-hole should be ~8 cm deep.
