You and the fix are a Beautiful Thing. Reply Trainer In Training says: October 14, 2018 at 9:23 pm So basically – that drill can be for brick and for wood? (just use the correct drill bit?) thank you Reply Sher v says: October 14, 2018 at 9:26 pm Our quandary is hanging a TV on the fireplace.. We have the hanger, our chimney is "finished" with old house plaster..so our TV and sound bar sit…in a misshapen corded mess on our beautiful mantel.. I am seriously thinking of purchasing a new extremely thin lightweight one.. Just to get around "the hanging debacle" it might be more expensive.. Our may sit even higher….on second shelf of mantel.. Admittedly not the best viewing angle.. But it would "get the job done!" The mess would be mitigated! How/what have you all done/built to get around the modern TV on mantel debacle.. Reply The Memory Of All That says: October 14, 2018 at 9:56 pm I believe you mean to say "masonry," although you keep saying "masonary." ☺ Reply snakemonkey555 says: October 14, 2018 at 11:30 pm Makes sense, mortar will crumble over time. Brick is much more solid. Thanks Eric! Reply Colin Antink says: October 15, 2018 at 1:00 am THANKYOU! I have to hang literally dozens of grab rails for my aunt. No wwaaaayyy am I letting her pay nearly a thousand for that. They love to make money and rip off the elderly and disabled. This video actually helped. Reply Wendy Frances Milone says: October 15, 2018 at 1:03 am I have drilled into brick before. My first efforts were a joy. With the right tools, all things are possible. Choosing brick seemed like the choice. I miss my hammer drill but It's ok. I don't need it right now. Thank you for giving me a vote of confidence. You had no idea. Reply The Kamakura Gardener says: October 15, 2018 at 3:11 am You’re gorgeous! 😍😍🤣🤣 Reply Debbie King Tampa says: October 15, 2018 at 3:54 am You're beautiful 😁 Reply Pete Ciallella says: October 15, 2018 at 9:22 am If the cement between the bricks is brittle, I drill into the brick as well. But if the cement (masonry) is strong, I like to drill into that rather than than making a hole in the brick (the cement can be replaced/patched if needed later on). Reply David Bentley says: October 15, 2018 at 7:10 pm Great Job Eric looks great 👍 Reply John Doe says: October 15, 2018 at 11:30 pm Painfree ??? Just the screaming Sound makes massive headache for other people nearby . Why don`t you use for work like this a pneumatic rotary hammer drill with SDS or SDS-PLUS System from HILTI , MAKITA or other Producers ? You could by cheap ones for under 80 Bucks , Makita for under 150 . They are much faster and not as noisy as the normal drillers. ( Neighbours will be grateful ) And with Motion Stop and mostly included SDS-Chisel they are able to make bigger holes and slots through Bricks and Concrete for cables and tubes you use a manually "powered" chisel …. 🙂 Reply John Andrews says: October 16, 2018 at 1:07 am On larger or heavy items I like to use two hooks or screws spaced a little space apart, say 1/4 of the width of the frame. This makes it much easier to level the frame and it stays level because it won't swing from the single hang point. I watch everything, keep it up. Reply Mary Wehmeier says: October 17, 2018 at 10:15 am Eric, when we used braided cable wire for the hanger, we both tied/knotted it, then wrapped the end so it didn't hook someone or hang out. Looks professional to the client. FYI when drilling into brick, we duct tape the vac' hose to the wall. Then you safely have two hands on the drill. You're welcome. 😉 Reply Gail Dedrick says: October 19, 2018 at 4:10 am The amazon link to the hammer drill does not work. Reply Pixel Kitty says: October 21, 2018 at 11:33 pm You made it look easy and that's a beautiful thing! Reply AQUABANA says: November 2, 2018 at 6:50 pm Yes you are Reply Eddie Jordan says: November 3, 2018 at 2:23 pm Nice going Eric, do you have a video on bathroom remodeling ? Reply Lisa Wood says: November 28, 2018 at 9:07 pm Super enjoying your channel… I’m waiting for my hammer drill and bits in the mail so I can hang a canvas hanging on my cement wall in my little studio. Thank you 😊 Reply Lorrieonline says: December 7, 2018 at 2:57 pm Thank you, Eric! I have a block house and am pretty sure the same method works. (can't tell you how many masonry drill bits I went through in the past!) You've explained this so well!!

Cant wait to watch more of you! Reply wabio says: May 18, 2019 at 6:37 pm Another vote for brick! I trust the mortar about as much as I trust my local congressman. Reply Coon Dung says: August 13, 2019 at 11:42 am Does that string and one piece screw work for a heavy mirror say 35kg?. Reply True Gooner says: August 18, 2019 at 5:53 pm Thanks man. Reply WaterGirl49 says: September 15, 2019 at 7:36 pm Yes, you're a beautiful thing too,women love men who can fox things, watching them shave is a thing too 🙂 Reply LLK1169 says: September 23, 2019 at 1:26 pm Great job! Thank you for sharing this. I have a bit more confidence giving this a try now. Cute dogs too! Reply stringsnare says: October 12, 2019 at 1:48 am yeah you're a beautiful thing NO HOMO. anyway i am hanging an acoustic diy panel, and trying to figure out if i should go the concrete way against the wall, or hang from the ceiling which i would assume is a joist! since im renting, might go for the joist. either way this video was super useful. Reply Federico F says: October 13, 2019 at 5:13 am What if the bricks aren't exposed? You just guess? Reply WestHam66 says: October 22, 2019 at 8:32 pm Holding the vac is super awkward, and possibly a safety issue. I get an A4 size piece of paper, fold in 2 and stick to wall below hole location so all the dust falls down into the crease.
