sinking fluted masonry nails
I had to pick up some fluted masonry nails (grip-rite fas'ners) to mount some wood to my concrete walls. The question is, what size drill bit do I need to pre-drill the hole for the nails? The smallest bit I got is 5/32" do I need a smaller bit?
The screws I got to mount the plates to the floor are 3/16" inch (tapcon) need a 5/32" bit for pre-drill and these look fatter then the nails I got. I wonder if I should have got more tapcon screws to mount the wood to the walls instead of using the nails. I would, after all, prefer to NOT have a tile wall in my shower fall down on me :eek:
