    Wow, those concrete anchors are something else. Guess I’m not making any
    mistakes!´╗┐

    i just use tap-cons and drive them in with the hammer drill for a little
    shed or something. or, break out the RAM set and shoot nails in with a 32
    calibre charge ­čÖé thats always fun´╗┐

  4. Joe V says:

    that’s a great way to fasten a wall, but a hilti gun is much faster,
    cheaper, and does the job of holding a wall in place. I have finished
    dozens of basements, and a hilti is all I have ever used- no problems.´╗┐

    Bob great video. I was planing on building some pour in place concrete
    walls. Is this method good to use on the base plate of the forms? Ie base
    plate to hold bottom of form nailed into the footing or do you recommend a
    different method to hold the bottom of the forms? Im just concerned over
    the removal work after I remove the forms. Thanks´╗┐

  11. Jack M says:

    Cheers for the vid it was very helpful´╗┐

  12. Arsinekk says:

    Where do you get these things? They dont seem to be at Lowes or Home Depot.
    And all the ones I see online are like $30 or more for a box of 100. I dont
    need 100.´╗┐

    thank you´╗┐

  15. Shawn Ward says:

    @TheSaxyjaz Unless the concrete blow-out was deep then no. Move the new
    anchor a few inches away and install.+++Bob

  17. HomeRemodelWorkshop says:

    I am a bit confused about your situation. Are you walls framed to the
    concrete floors and the the wood floors are built between them? or is your
    wood floor framed and then the walls were built on top of them? Also why
    are you removing the wood floors, rot. termites. create more headroom in
    basement? Are the floors going back in?

  18. Matthew Medeiros says:

    Great video! Seems like a good alternative to a powder actuated fastener.

    Thanks Bob, I used Tap Con Screws. I appreciate your responses.

  20. FenceNewYork says:

    Well done video!!! great explanation.

  21. mcbridecreek says:

    Hey BOB You can speed up the process by drilling the hole in the treated
    floor plate with the 1/4 inch roto hammer bit saving one step. Drill in
    3/4inch over depth and roget cleaning the debris away. Also why buy a split
    drive fastener when 2 -16d green vinyl sinkers are cheaper and you already
    have some in your tool bags? Great video.

  22. HomeRemodelWorkshop says:

    If you have the tools,some basic skills,and a willingness to learn and work
    thru possible problems,I say go for it! If you have a friend or a friend of
    a friend that works as a carpenter you could ask questions of that comes in
    handy as a resource, If there are any questions I can help with leave a
    message on my channel+++Bob

  23. HomeRemodelWorkshop says:

    If its against your lease to drill Tap-Cons into floor (they are
    removeable) I would put some silicone under it. We use it to keep granite
    countertops from sliding around and should work, Good luck +++Bob

    Hmmm… not a problem yet! but he figures while it’s open what are some of
    the ways to improve something that could cause issues. So any spray foams,
    gaskets, sheet metal etc. that is known in the industry for such
    occassions. He’s willing to hire the right professional as he wants to
    improve what’s there already ­čÖé Thanks for your input… much appreciated!
    BTW, he is quite crafty with his collection of tools but not sure what’s
    involved.

    Thanks Bob….you saved me some heartache… getting ready to frame
    basement and your videos have helped already. Keep up the good work
