> Well, thanks to long-ago busted EM stud I'm doing a little head drilling myself.  I know there's water in there somewhere and I don't want to find it with my bit.

Oh so funny that you should mention that...

I found said water myself last night.  Aluminum drills real quick when
you finish going through the remnants of the steel bits.  I don't have
the stud hole depth for you in front of me but I CAN tell you that the
width of the wall behind the stud I had to repair was less than 1/8".

Repair isn't going to be too tough (using the end of an EM stud chopped
off as the 'plug' with some JB weld to hold/seal it in place).  Still,
really caps off my week of working on this stupid thing.

>   Since my new studs aren't here yet I don't have one to measure to ensure I've got the hole deep enough.  Anyone know how long the in-the-head portion of the stud is, or depth of the tapped hole, or both?

if you still need it tonight i can measure for you.
