<article readability="8 &lt;p&gt;It’s easy to drill a new hole, but how do you go about enlarging a hole that’s already there? This is a common problem when drilling a larger hole in a door for a new deadbolt or lockset.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;To enlarge an existing hole:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;Cut two scraps of 1/2″ or thicker plywood, making them several inches larger than the hole.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Mark the centerline of the existing hole on the edge of the door.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Clamp the scraps of plywood above and below the hole.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Extend the centerline of the hole across the top scrap of plywood.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Measure from the edge of the door to the center of the hole, and mark it on the centerline.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Chuck a hole saw in a drill and drill through the plywood and door.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ol&gt;&lt;p&gt;Watch this video to see a simple way to get the job done in no time.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;!
