Newbie Question


New to the forum, need to install just a (wooden) fence gate between my house & the next. In oder to do so, I will need to break through some concrete to install the posts. What's the easiest way for me to do so?

Newbie Question


Sledgehammers work great for "breaking" concrete. Hammer drills work well for drilling holes through concrete. I have used grinders and circular saws (with appropriate blade) for cutting concrete. I have used masonry chisels.

Some hammer drills can be set to hammer only. With those, one can install chisel bits and use it as a mini jackhammer.
