I used these, had allot left over after building my deck. They also gave good compression when fastening thruogh the Vermiculite concrete layer.

Mike, my-bad, the Tap-cons are BLUE (in California and other states too). I just realized I bought some blue Tap-cons months ago and the drill bit they sell for it to mount an angle bracket to my outer arch for but-dressing (boy, did I just bring up an old-dead-horse-of-a-post or what).

So, 3 Tap-Cons per side, about 3-4" deep (assuming a 5'-6' side and back of the oven base) sound about right? I don't have a vermiculite/conc layer, just the 4" slab.

Thanks, Dino

How do you avoid the rebar in the concrete when drilling down?

In my particular project, luck was involved

I ran into rebar a couple of times with the drill (or maybe tough rocks). I pulled out the drill and made a new hole.

I was afraid you'd say that. I don't seem to have much lately.

Don't worry too much about it, if you hit one just move over. I vaguely remembered the general area of rebar and did not hit one. Unless you really packed them in, the odds are in your favor.

Hey guys, don't mean to hijack this thread but thought you might know. Can you mount a steel track on top of concrete blocks? Between my oven and fireplace I'll be putting in counters which I wanted to build out of steel frame but I need to put a layer of concrete block down first to lift it up and act as a retaining wall. So I'll have a cement slab with a rectangle of cement block and I'm trying to figure out a way to build some steel frame cabinets on top of that.

Thanks,
Shay

Sure, use Tapcons to secure them.

Yeah? cool, my main concern was the walls of the blocks would be too thin to drill and screw into from the top vs the side.
