Posted this before but it hasn't appeared!
I am trying to nail the conduit over the cables on the old outer leaf
(new extension inner leaf) which is 40 yr old red brick, Masonary nails
are bending like galv clout heads !.
the only solution I can think of is to drill and screw them, pain in
the arse !!
any other ideas?
Don't quite understand the outer leaf /inner leaf thing; but the answer
is surely to nail into the mortar.
Are you really nailing conduit, or is it capping? This is
pre-plastering, right? IME oval conduit doesn't need much fixing in
place at all.
You can get "nail" wall plugs (thorsman?)
and IIRC nails for plastic capping that have "fitted washers" to create a
panel pin with a large head - (made by the company that pack cable clips in
yellow boxes?) - quick search
I'm glad you said that. The idea of trying to fix conduit using nails
made me shudder.
Are you using proper capping nails (like these
