1/2" bolts
« on: December 04, 2013, 11:14:53 AM »

I recently got a box of hilti quick bolts for free 1/2" x 3" and have never used them before. They look similar to the rawl/powers stud b bit overkill for granite but for "lesser" stone ?

I'm using only 1/2 inch in granite/gneiss but then I'm an overkill kind of guy.

Don't stop "overkilling" Ward.  We won't want it any other way :)

I like overkill: that stuff is easier to maintain and requires it less frequently. I took out one of Ward's monsterous anchors (to repair it after someone chopped the other half of it, among other reasons) and it was super easy to retrofit. I definitely appreciated the larger holes when I was fishing out the old sleeves and prepping for new hardware.

For some reason, I am conjuring up images of the single bolt anchors on the third flatiron....now those might be overkill.... :)
