Concrete Anchors How to Install Concrete Anchors GOOD ONE
00:11 Speaker 1: G’day knuckleheads, Uncle Knackers here, and today I’d like to show you how to attach timber to a solid masonry surface or concrete. Come on, let’s go. Come on chop, chop. 00:27 S1: So the tools you need for this job are a dust mask for the concrete dust that you’ll be bringing up, some goggles for eye protection, some hearing protection, a hammer drill or a rotary drill, I’ll explain the difference in a minute, a masonry bit, a DynaBolt or a through bolt depending on which country you’re from, a hammer, spanner or a shifting.
Shipping spanner or a torque wrench and a brush and pan. 01:03 S1: Now before I do the demo, I just wanna discuss the choice of drill when drilling into concrete. You have two options, you have a pure hammer drill or the latest sort of hammer drills are rotary hammer drills which are ones like this, and they are far superior to a standard hammer drill. And they come with different drill bits. This is your standard hammer drill bit, see how the shaft’s all smooth and the jaws of the drill just clamp around it. But your SDS drill bit which is used for a rotary hammer drill is like this. See the different grooves and slots. It’s designed for a much more efficient method.
Of drilling into concrete. And if you can afford to get one, and it costs about 60 bucks, 60, 70 bucks, you don’t need to go for the big $600 job; this one here costs you 60 bucks. And I’ve had it for about, I don’t know, five to six years, so it’s well worth the investment. 02:03 S1: Okay, let’s talk about the anchors. Now the anchor that I use to attach the timber to the concrete is this DynaBolt or Through Bolt, as it’s known in some countries and all it is, is a loose sleeve. Is a loose sleeve with a nut on the end of the bolt. And as you do. Can you see that? As you do the nut up the expandable wings spread out, therefore attaching your timber to the concrete. Pretty ingenious. And the size of.
The DynaBolt, you might be able to see it there, it says 10 mil. So if it says 10 mil on your DynaBolt or your Through Bolt, that’s the size drill bit you use. So with my SDS drill bit for my rotary hammer drill you’ll see here somewhere where it says 10 mil. That’s the size drill bit you use. Okay lets stop mucking around and get the demo under way. Okay, come on. 03:15 S1: Alright just quickly before we do this demo, how deep do you drill your hole? Good question, glad you asked it. DynaBolt goes through your piece of timber and into your concrete. We want the hole to be drilled about 10 mil deeper than the length of that.
DynaBolt there. That way if there’s any debris left inside the hole, this DynaBolt isn’t going to bottom out and stick out like that. We don’t want that to happen. Okay let’s do this demo. 03:52 S1: The first thing you need to do is you need to position your timber. Now I’ve got a line marked down the slab here, so I’ll position my timber up against that line. That’s where I want it to go. Now make sure you’ve got your hearing protection on, your goggles and your dust masks. Some guys like to predrill their holes, personally with a rotary hammer drill going through pine, I don’t think you really need to. So this is how simple it is.
Drill on top of the timber and away we go. 04:46 S1: Done. It was that easy. Now let’s get a brush or use your fingers or whatever and get rid of all that dust so that it doesn’t get back inside the hole. Look at that, it’s so easy. Pull the drill out, get rid of that dust, and we’re now ready to insert the DynaBolt. To insert the DynaBolt is very very simple. Just put it in the hole like that, and tap it in. Done. Beautiful. 05:’ S1: Now to tighten it up, what we need is a spanner. Now the proper way to do it is with a torque wrench and on the back of the packet of the DynaBolt it will tell you.
How much pressure to actually put on these nuts. But most of us don’t have a torque wrench, so let’s use a shifter or a spanner of some description, and let’s tighten this up until it’s nice and firm. Don’t get too crazy, just till it’s firm like that. And there you have it, secured to the concrete, never ever to come off. Absolutely fantastic. How easy was that? An absolute piece of cake.

And after the end credits don’t forget there are two bonus tips that you won’t wanna miss. So, till next time. Great tip, knackers!.
Human Resource Management
When sporting teams and work teams have plans to improve themselves, or simply have a vacancy, the coach or manager usually calls in a specialist to find new talents. In companies, that specialist is the HR or human resources manager. HR staff kick into action and start the search for interested recruits. Recruiting is a huge part of making great teams. From the group of wannabes, HR staff use their knowledge and experience to find the best person for the job. HR managers are a vital link in the company’s overall structure, making sure that the people.
Match the company’s purpose. But human resources staff do much more than find stars for the team, they provide expert advice to managers about how they can improve their team’s performance and suggest training options to optimise staff potential. HR staff also monitor wellbeing, look after safety needs and sometimes act as intermediaries. Both sides need HR when differences arise. And importantly, they make sure people get paid fairly. They then follow up to ensure when jobs change, so does the pay.
Keeping capable staff saves time and money in the long run, so HR managers play a big part in staff retention. In a big company, helping people along a successful career path is part of this responsibility. HR managers can make a big difference when they connect the right people. They help shape the business by facilitating change, then everyone benefits. HR experts are employed all over the world, which allows for great overseas employment opportunities. So in summing up, human resources recruit team members, advise on team performance, oversee staff training options, monitor wellbeing, facilitate change, organise salary payments.
And resolve grievances. Your training starts here. Recruit yourself into HR by enrolling in a business course at Monash University.
