The dust particles of concrete are very fine, and vacuuming will not remove them easily. Especially when you drill the hole for tapcon screws.
I’m suggesting a different tip. We use it all the time and got the best results.
Use a liquid to remove all of the dust particles. Just mix 12 ounces of hydrogen peroxide in 1 gallon of water and use soft cotton rags to wipe the surfaces of the drill chuck.
Water alone doesn’t pick up all of such dust particles and requires multiple sorts of cleanings.
This solution eliminates the particles and makes it a bit easier for the rags to absorb them and carry them away.August 20, 2020 at 5:37 am #749930
You need to get a new power supply that will increase the voltage from 110V to 220V so that machine will work, otherwise it will not work because of low voltage.
Plug is not the issue here because you will get the convertible adopter anywhere on ebay or amazonAugust 20, 2020 at 5:27 am #749929
It looks like the block is missing from the place, put concrete in it and page it.
Do not forget to put a bonding agent before putting concrete,August 13, 2020 at 3:17 am #749521

Bingo… You are good to go now.August 12, 2020 at 8:40 am #749495
I have installed once with my dad, took a half day and hell a lot of energy. If you have the tools and power you can do it. Just make sure to get the right parts at the right place using the cabinet installing manual.August 5, 2020 at 7:21 am #749064

Wedge anchors are one of the most commonly used concrete anchors in our daily lives. Most concrete anchors work in one of two ways–either by expanding against the sides of the hole and gripping the concrete or by the friction against the sides of the hole. The gripping power of an anchor depends on the quality of the concrete and where the anchor is positioned. If the concrete is old and brittle, the holding power of the fastener will be reduced.
These are the fasteners you’ll buy and use most often in your houses. They’re great for fastening the shelf brackets, rake, towel bars, and any sort of brackets, shower doors, pipe and conduit retainers or anything else lighter than 50 lbs. They need a pilot hole at least as deep as the screw will penetrate. Each package will tell the size of the hole and screw that’ll work best.July 29, 2020 at 4:02 am #748546
Moisture creates bubbles and the paint starts to peel off. It might be the moisture issue but it is not a serious one because the paint is still intact and bubble is still under the paint. You should peel off the paint your self and check what is the problem with the planks.
You are saying that the house is very old, it might start getting moisture from somewhere.July 28, 2020 at 3:25 am #748485
I think it is good.July 16, 2020 at 10:23 am #747741
but you can always use it where you want because now you have it.July 8, 2020 at 6:41 am #747378
I think you should get the leak fixed before it can do any more damage. The thing is that if the water is getting under, it will create more problems to the flooring.
Boschmanbrian is right, you can tag a guy who has more experience in this area.July 7, 2020 at 7:05 am #747342

Installing Tapcon Concrete Screws can be done in few easy steps and can be used when working with electrical boxes, wood headers, and other exterior insulation systems. Tapcons are best matched for light to medium duty fastening purposes, are available in standard 3/16” and 1/4” diameters, as well as large diameter size varieties of 3/8”, 1/2″, 5/8” and 3/4” and, are offered in an extensive variety of materials (including the stainless steel) to meet every construction need. After installation, they can be removed and replaced without disturbing the base material.
1. Select an appropriate size of a masonry screw.
2. Choose a drill bit. Place drill bit and screw together. Use Tape to wrap at a point equal to the size of a size, so that you may not drill a deeper than the actual size of a screw.
3. Drill a hole into the base material.
4. Clean out the hole of all the debris.
5. Insert pointed end of masonry screw into the base material and drive slowly with a slight push force so that threads are fixed into the base material.
