Anyone got any ideas how I could source or make an M5 ish sleeve to take a
machine screw such that the sleeve could be set in a wall with resin
I need to mount a shower valve on a crappy celcon block wall. I would be
happiest with a machine screw into something metal bonded into the block as
the shower valve is bloody heavy (about 5kg heavy - it's machined out of a
solid lump of cast brass or something).
There isn't enough room to put a nut on a stud and I'd barely trust a screw
into a brick wall let alone block.
One thought is to drill and tap a thick brass rod, but as I'd have to then
buy a metric tap set, I was wondering if something ready made existed?
Threaded spacers came to mind, but they tend to be chromed and I don't
recall seeing as big as M5 ish.
