If you are faced with drilling into concrete for the first time, then this article should really help you out. Most bricks that we see everyday are made mostly from clay, which is the pressed into blocks, and heated up in a kiln to make them hard. Cement is basically a fine mineral powder and when you add water it becomes a paste like substance that can act as a binding agent. Mortar contains as its main ingredient cement and then has lime added, or may also use masonry cement and sand.
Concrete is a mixture of various aggregates like sand, gravel, crushed stone which are bonded together using cement. If you are ever trying to attach something to a brick wall, then try to line it up so as the drill holes have to go through the mortar, rather than the brick as it is so much easier to drill through.
If you have these, then it is just the technique that you will have to master and it is a lot easier than you may think. Avoid trying to thumps the drill up and down into the hole though as that will damage the chuck on your drill. In terms of size you can get them anything between 5 mm to 40 mm in diameter and up to about 39″ in length. You need to figure out what size of hole that you need to drill and what depth you need it to be. So as you can see from the video above, if you have the right tools for the job, then drilling through concrete is a great deal easier than you may have thought. The bottom line is however, that as long as you have a good hammer drill, a decent quality masonry bit, then all it needs is a little know how and you can get the job done quickly and successfully.

Drilling into concrete or steel lintels and also fixing into concrete and steel lintels has presented problems for years to DIY enthusiasts and professional alike.
For concrete lintels the answer is to start your fixing holes with the smallest masonry drill bit you can get, normally 3mm, and work up to the size you require. If you hit steel reinforcing in the concrete lintel however, there is no choice but to move the fixing hole or follow the instructions and diagrams below. In respect to this, if you have a few spare pounds it's well worth investing in a specialist drill bit set, purpose made for this job as it is now possible to buy drill bits that will go through both concrete and steel - check them out in our store here.
When drilling any holes it is also important that you hold your drill straight so that the hole you drill is also straight. With your hole drilled to the correct size for the wall plug or fixing you have chosen (some fixings can be used without the need for a wall plug), position the holes in your lintel and the item you are fixing over each other and insert your screw or fixing. Steel lintels are even more difficult to fix to as, once you have drilled through the plaster and reached the steel lintel, you must then swap drill bits for a high speed steel bit and then use self tapping screws to fix the item you wish to hang.
This is a very difficult process not least because once you have drilled the hole for the self tapping screw, you then have to locate it again to put the screw into it.
Considering there is always at least 20mm between the surface of the plaster or plasterboard to the lintel, this is no mean feat. If you decide that drilling is the best option to use other than the one outlined below then ensure that you have a decent drill to hand, a range of different sized drills bits and also ensure that they are sharp. Trying to drill something as hard as steel and concrete with a blunt drill bit will take a lifetime and also put a large amount of un-needed pressure on the drill itself. Also ensure that you have a decent drill bit that fits the screw head tightly and also a decent bit holder to ensure the bit does not slip and become wedged in the bit holder (check out our review on drill bit holders for more info).
With your hold drilled in both the lintel and also the item you are fixing to the lintel (if needed) position the two with the holes aligned and pop your screw in and screw it up. Ensure that you have the driver set to the correct torque setting and it is set to screwdriver and not drill and screw it up tight. A much easier option which will always give you a good fix is to glue a section of timber to the head (soffit) of the window opening and fix to that. Always read the manufacturers instructions as some construction adhesives recommend the surfaces to be glued together should be damped down slightly first. In the example we have given here the client chose to have a timber glued the full width and depth of the soffit.
A piece of planed square edged (PSE) timber was cut to length and a heavy weight construction adhesive applied to the back. The timber is then pushed back up and pinned into position with props made from 2 x 2 inch sawn timber with an off cut of the 8 x 1 inch timber cut down and fixed across the top.
Once the adhesive had set (24hours) the props were removed and at this point we would ordinarily have filled any gaps or nicks in the timber and primed, undercoated and glossed the wood to match the room. The cappit is glued up to the timber and the same procedure is used to hold the cappit in place for 24 hours.
Using pilot holes (see our related projects, right) normal screws can be driven up through the plastic and into the timber for a solid reliable fix for any kind of window blind, curtain poles or curtains. Have you ever seen a sidewalk poured with new concrete and watched someone finish the concrete?
You would think replacing a cracked toilet seat is easy, but nooooo, not for a one piece toilet ! Adding a heating appliance to your home can often cost more than the price of the appliance and its installation.
In this instructable I will show you how to create extra space in your home for all the things you usually stumble over scattered on the floor. I have an older home, and found a Weslock door knob on one of my doors that I wanted to swap out with a locking knob made by Defiant. This instructable will teach you how to apply cool images of your choice to your electrical switchplates. A while back we had an unexpected forced kitchen remodel, a row of upper cabinets full fell off the wall one day nearly taking my wife out with it. It always frustrates me when I do a caulking or sealant job around the house to have to throw away a half used tube of caulk or silicon sealant or construction adhesive.

The interior doors of my house have the original 1950's knobs - the old style with the long escutcheon plates and the knob-and-spindle doorknobs. Fluorescent lights from places like Home Depot look good and seem like a real bargain but the ballasts inside don't last.
I recently moved into a new apartment and as a producer of electronic music, I wanted one of my rooms to have good acoustic properties.
What do you do if you remove an old toilet and discover that the closet bolts are rusted out, there is no closet flange, and the waste line is made of terra cotta?
We were given a welder that has a big 240 volt plug, but our home doesn't have any 240V outlets already wired. This outdated bathroom is getting fixed up, and I decided to do it myself, gaining experience and saving money. This is the finished bathroom I built a few years ago which includes a large walk-in shower. This Instructable will cover three ways to mix regular concrete, one way to mix glass-fiber-reinforced-concrete (GFRC), and instructions on performing a Slump Test to check the consistency of the concrete mix.
This is an adventure in refinishing my hardwood staircase, told by an amateur artist and homeowner. NEVADA — Rocmec Mining, based in a suburb of Montreal, says it has signed an agreement for the use of its thermal fragmentation rock breaking technology in the Midas underground gold mine 100 km northeast of Winnemucca. TM 6.1, the latest version of its next generation scheduling software for surface and underground mines of all sizes and types, improving productivity and profits beyond what could be achieved by manual scheduling.
MineSched 6.1 offers an unprecedented ability to accommodate for the unique planning characteristics found in every mining project and includes customer-driven enhancements such as linking MineSched to external Microsoft® Excel® workbooks for easy integration to existing planning processes. When mining companies seek to increase mine productivity, they turn to Gemcom for technology and services.

The rugged construction of the scavenger conveyor system delivers excellent durability and longevity under harsh conditions, helping coal handlers and ore miners reduce safety hazards while preventing material accumulation that can impede conveyor components and increase system downtime. The MARTIN® Carryback Capture System's modular design was developed amidst a growing demand for tertiary cleaning systems and a trend driven in part by environmental, regulatory, and safety pressures to improve coal conveying and reduce dust emissions-as seen in OSHA's Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program.
Commonly found in underground mines, scavenger conveyors are typically installed in applications where the main conveyor belt is nearly horizontal, so recovered material will not flow due to gravity and must be moved by mechanical means.  The Carryback Capture System from Martin Engineering stands just 13 inches (330 mm) high, allowing it to fit into tight spaces under conveyors or in low overhead conditions. Founded in 1944, Martin Engineering is the world leader in making bulk materials handling cleaner, safer, and more productive.
SABIA serves coal mines, coal preparation plants, coal-fired power plants, cement plants, and other minerals mines and processing operations. The SABIA X1 analyzers help clients eliminate material uncertainty, streamline the decision making process, lower costs, improve quality, and reduce negative environmental impact. As regulatory agencies implement emission standards there is an increasing demand for real time information. Select product courses are available in Portuguese and Spanish through Geosoft Latinoamerica in Brazil. Gold Fields has become the first mining group, registered as a signatory with the International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI), to obtain accreditation for all its eligible operations with the International Cyanide Management Code. Depending on how cement is actually made it has different uses such as under water constructions, for setting posts and many other uses.
If you don’t want to spend the money buying one, then rental or borrowing one will be your only option.
In the ideal world you would want to use a hammer drill, but if you have a regular drill, then the only thing you can do is make sure to have the right drill bits attached to the chuck.
Now without the hammer action the only thing you have working for you is the turning speed of the drill itself. If you are attaching something to a wall, then in most cases, the wall plugs should come with it. It depends a lot on what you are drilling the concrete for, as to what size of hole you need to drill, and what type of anchor or plug you are going to put into it.
Infatti, oltre al solito movimento rotatorio, comune a tutti i trapani, quello a percussione mescola anche il movimento battente, che permette di aumentare la potenza nel momento in cui si va a forare un qualsiasi materiale; i due tipi di movimenti devono essere combinati tra loro soprattutto quando ci si trova in presenza di materiali come cemento e granito, che sono molto duri. You don't want to drill any holes at an angle as when you insert your fixing or screw in any screws these will also go in at an angle!
The construction adhesives available these days are wonderful and as strong as any mechanical fixing. At which point it could have been filled with wood filler and decorators caulk and painted.
We work with Checkatrade to ensure that we recommend only reliable and trustworthy tradesmen. You probably didn’t pay a lot of attention but you noticed someone down on their hands and knees with a trowel moving around the concrete surface.
This is because there's no nut on the bottom side, so Kohler & others put anchors instead. Working in my shop I realized that a window would allow me to have a breeze in the summer, and bring in sunlight in the winter. Terrible tiles, missing wall mirrors and ugly countertops had me willing to try something different and fun, as well as cheap. After mixing the first four cubic feet with a spade in a wheel barrow I decided I needed an easier solution. At the local Home Depot, the only two brands of knobs that I saw were Defiant and Keystone.
We had to replace them, and all the roofing companies said to do it ourselves, because its easy.Winds of 100km, the yard was a mess, garbage, shingles, toy pools, wishing wells and leaves everywhere. My husband built this mailbox in one day, although he is a 20 year masonry veteran, we believe anyone can do this with the correct tools, materials, and planning. I found a few spots where (in the bathroom) the floor joist had gotten soaked through and rotted. Just in case you do, I hope to create a foolproof guide containing all the information you need to do so. The lights come with a warranty but removing the light and returning it about once a year isn't worth the trouble.

We can show you how to use diamond drilling kits made for the construction industry and used by professional installers, tilers, plumbers, builders, electricians and commercial shop fitters.
You could pay someone $$$$$ to jack hammer out half of your basement floor and connect up to the terra cotta. Taking out the sink and vanity was very difficult, so this instructable is to help any other do-it-yourself home improver's. Since I couldn't find a great looking replacement that didn't cost a gazillion dollars, and since my fans still worked fine, I decided to just change their look. When we moved in, the front door wouldn't open all the way; it drug the floor at about 70 degrees from full open.
This may not be how the pros would do it, but it's done for about $150 in materials and a few days of my time. MineSched incorporates a unique four-step scheduling workflow and visual scheduling canvas to enable mine planners to create better schedules more quickly compared to other software. Combined with new features to allow mine planners to more intuitively manipulate, analyse, and report their scheduling scenarios, MineSched 6.1 helps produce practical schedules for any mine planning situation.
The Company is home to world-renowned mining solutions like GEMS, Surpac, Minex, Whittle, and InSite and to industry thought-leaders who are pushing the boundaries of what's possible in mining. The new MARTIN® Carryback Capture System transfers belt cleaning residue back into the material stream, avoiding cleanup labor, injury potential, and dust hazards associated with buildup. Martin Engineering technologies control dust and spillage from belt conveyors and promote the movement of bulk solids from storage and through industrial processes. Custom training courses can be developed to meet your organization's specific requirements.
Software tutorials include sample datasets that allow you to follow a typical workflow or jump to a specific process. This follows both the Kloof and Driefontein mines, located in South Africa, attaining the standard. Concrete brick, or mortar are tough materials and concrete is harder and tougher to get through than normal cement, mortar or brick. Concrete will have about 15% of cement in it and most side walks, floors etc are made from concrete. I do remember borrowing one from my father in law, when I didn’t have many tools, and yes I managed to wreck it. Make sure you have some water available and use that regularly to stop the bit from heating up. Also remove the drill from the hole on a regular basis to allow the dust to be removed and also keep the flutes of the drill clear.
The more powerful the drill you have and the better quality your masonry bits, then the easier this becomes. Il trapano a percussione rientra tra i trapani portatili, con un doppio sistema di alimentazione, a batteria o a corrente, a seconda delle esigenze personali; solitamente il trapano a percussione che si alimenta a batterie e consigliato per un utilizzo casalingo, dal momento che non possiede una potenza notevole, ma hanno il vantaggio di essere molto pratici e utilizzabili anche in spazi decisamente angusti. If you need to fix a blind or curtain rail into a window recess this will probably involve drilling into concrete lintels or drilling into steel lintels. This one is a good sample, when I need to crimp a CAT5 network cable in a Bank here in Brazil, but I haven't my crimper tool with me.
Enough to squeeze by it, and you could force it all the way open, but it was rubbing the floor pretty good.

With corporate offices in Neponset, Illinois, the privately-held company reaches around the world with operations in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and United Kingdom. The SABIA X1 Series utilizes PGNA technology and provides the user with accurate, real time elemental analysis of a moving stream of material. SABIA provides integrated bulk material analyzers, associated software options, service, and support for nuclear analyzers and gauges. Gold Fields’ CEO, Nick Holland, commented: “We have now achieved the objective we set ourselves in November 2005, when we became a signatory to the cyanide code, for all Gold Fields operations to be ICMI accredited”. Before you even contemplate getting your drill out, I think it is a good idea to understand what you are up against.
However the tip will have a tungsten carbide brazed into the tip to provide the tough cutting edge that is required.
The bottom line here really is that you should never buy cheap drill bits to do any job, as they will drive you crazy. In terms of depth, the simplest way is to set the drill head beside the wall plug and measure it. You can use it to mark the hole and also to grind out a bit of the concrete, to help give you somewhere to place the point of the drill bit. It needs to be firm enough to avoid slipping and tight enough to allow the drill to rotate at a slow speed.
They're vented to the outside air in the summer (and in the winter if you neglect to close your vents) which can be very humid and this defeats the purpose of venting. MARTIN® Products and Services are also available from authorized representatives around the world.
In this guide we will also show you a method of fixing that avoids the need for drilling into concrete or steel lintels.
When connected to the drill, this hardened head then continually bumps against the concrete and breaks it down, and the flutes of the drill bit will push the masonry dust out and away from the hole.
E' buona norma sapere l'attrezzo si puo impugnare sia con una sola mano che con entrambe, in base alla dotazione di singola o doppia impugnatura ed anche in base al modo in cui risulti piu comodo.
L'acciaio ha il pregio di essere al contempo leggero ma resistente, permettendo di durare a lungo anche in situazioni difficili e riuscendo a mantenere immutato il suo aspetto durante tutto il suo impiego.
Le punte in acciaio non temono alcun tipo di attacco da parte di liquidi e non sono soggette alla formazione di ruggine, dal momento che l'acciaio e un materiale immune a questa tipologia di disturbo.
