  • hanging punching bag from concrete ceiling?

    my basement ceiling is 4" thick. There is 1/8"ish plaster on surface and after that there is 4" of what i believe to be concrete. I use a regular masonry bit to try and drill in but it ended up dulling after one hole so i bought a concrete bit and it takes a good at least 10 - 15 minutes of constant drilling to get through. The holes are nice and clean no chipping or anything and the dust is a tanish or very very light brown color. I would like to hang my 75 pound punching bag up and didnt feel comfortable with only 2 3'4 inch anchors so i fabricated a steel bar so i could use 4 3/4" long lag sheilds. would that work and can you see the ceiling being anything other than concrete?

  • hanging punching bag from concrete ceiling?

    So I'm trying to hang a punching bag in my ceiling. I cant imagine that the ceiling is anything other than cement because it is at least 4" thick and takes at least 15 min nonstop to drill all the way through with a hammer drill and concrete bit. I guess my question is considering the above do you think my ceiling could be anything other than cement? also after i drilled 3/4" hole i tried to cut a line with a bi-metal saws all blade but it just dulled the teeth right away i literally didn't get anywhere. If my ceiling was plaster wouldn't the bi-metal blade at least cut a small line before it

    made it dull? The bag comes with 2 screws but I was going to fabricate a metal bar so I could use 4 lag screws with wedge anchors do you see that working?

  • took blame for girlfriends weed pipe.....?

    took the blame for my girlfriends vaporizer and pipe which was paraphernalia charge. If she is willing to admit it was hers and has a receipt for it, will they take the charges off me and put on her?

  • child endangerment for having a pipe and vaporizer in my trunk?

    Rented a cabin in Morgan UT we were all packed up ready to go when the rangers pull up said someone reported it smelled like weed.Told cops they could not search my car. Said they don't need warrant for k9 to search. k9 signals its in my trunk. I tell them whats in my trunk a vaporizer, pipe and grinder, the weed was gone. They search and confiscate everything. The officer asked me if I had smoked today and I said ya this morning (I was holding my 1 yr old when he asked), however he did not ask if I was under the influence at that particular moment which was about 11:00 am The officer arrested me for paraphernalia and felony child endangerment which then both charges jump up a class because its in national park. When they searched all the stuff was in the trunk I was not high and my child did not have access to the marijuana...WTF? Also the vaporizor and grinder is technically my girlfriends so she is willing to admit that and has a receipt for it. If she was to acknowledge it was all hers would my charges be dropped?
