thanks - i had thought ' brick ties ' were little galvanized right-angle pieces that were fluted on the brick side & got nailed to the sheathing, woody,,, think ' wall ties ' is another term for them,,, as i recall, they were about 12" long & we used 1/4" carbide bit in a bulldog,,, just too f'n much to remember as i get older
