I have no idea what my wall is made of, but I can't get into it with a
standard drill and bit or with a "self-drilling anchor". All I
managed to do is gouge out a hole in the wall. Any idea what it may
be made of, or how to get into it?
Another wall has a similar problem: I can't hammer a nail into it
deeper than a coupla mm. Presumably made of the same stuff, but this
time I didn't try much harder than that to get into the wall.
not much of a DIYer (obviously)
This is from an old thread. I'm using Google Groups (alas) which was
acting up, so I couldn't see (at that time) that my post even went
through to Usenet. I assumed it didn't until I just came across it
now and read the responses. Here's my followup.
Me, back in September:
1948 (I think), and St. Louis County, Mo.
Sandy. More precisely, like a rock that's been pulverized. Perhaps
like concrete or cement that's been pulverized, but I don't know
enough about them.
People have answered what they think it may be -- and thanks -- but
any idea how I can get into it?
