Hello, and thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
I am currently attempting to mount a TKO heavy bag wall mount in my basement on a concrete wall.
To do this I've decided to use eight 1/2" x 3" sleeve bolts for each of the holes as since it is an outer wall I want the mount to be as secure as possible so I can work out hard without damaging my home. This is the only place I can place this setup.
I marked out all eight holes using the mount and a level, then used a hammer drill with a 1/2" masonry bit to drill all 8 holes. I thought I did a pretty decent job, but upon placing the anchor bolts in and attempting to put up the mount I realized some of them were off very slightly (no more than 1/8" or less). I did some more research and realized I did not clean out the drilled holes with a wire brush and am pretty sure I can clean these holes up a bit more with my hammer drill, but before I started getting carried away I wanted to see if this sounds like a logical approach. I had to knock through most of my anchor bolts onto the other side of the wall but managed to clear the holes.
I also learned quickly that trying to put up something with anchor bolts by yourself is a pain in the neck. Is there any secret to it, or is just using another person or two to hold the mount while I line it up and tighten up the anchor bolts the easiest way?
My background is I was a 21W in the Army Reserves (carpentry and masonry) and am a bit handy around the house but no other applicable experience.
