    Thumbs up Drilling Concrete for tapcons.... FYI

    Just in case you ever want to drill a few holes in concrete for some tapcons...

    Don't even consider trying to do so with a regular drill. Just don't.

    DAMHIKT.

    Just run off to Rona (or whatever your local BORG is called) and get yourself a basic Hammer Drill. (this one works.)
    You really DO need to have the right tool for the job.
    All of a sudden a frustratingly impossible task will suddenly .... just work.

    FYI, FWIW, TTFN.

    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Ya didn't get frustrated enough to "tap" it without buying that exotic piece of equipment??!!! Yep, right tool for the job generally makes that job easier. They are amazing.
