  1. So I was passing along the street and I noticed some people had graced there Dogs (capital D) with there …..ready for it? With there VERY OWN FIRE HYDRANT! Sweet huh? Er, DO YOUR DOGS HAVE THERE VERY OWN FIRE HYDRANT? If yes THEN YOUR A BEAUTIFUL THING ….if no …..then YOUR STILL A BEAUTIFUL THING ๐Ÿ˜€

    Dogs and fire hydrants just go together O.o

  2. Our quandary is hanging a TV on the fireplace.. We have the hanger, our chimney is "finished" with old house plaster..so our TV and sound bar sit…in a misshapen corded mess on our beautiful mantel.. I am seriously thinking of purchasing a new extremely thin lightweight one.. Just to get around "the hanging debacle" it might be more expensive.. Our may sit even higher….on second shelf of mantel.. Admittedly not the best viewing angle.. But it would "get the job done!" The mess would be mitigated! How/what have you all done/built to get around the modern TV on mantel debacle..

  3. THANKYOU! I have to hang literally dozens of grab rails for my aunt. No wwaaaayyy am I letting her pay nearly a thousand for that. They love to make money and rip off the elderly and disabled. This video actually helped.

  4. I have drilled into brick before. My first efforts were a joy. With the right tools, all things are possible. Choosing brick seemed like the choice. I miss my hammer drill but It's ok. I don't need it right now. Thank you for giving me a vote of confidence. You had no idea.

  5. I'm sure that job was inspired by the camera lady, whose comments, questions and laughter were missed. Good job hanging the mirror and I agree, into the brick. Another vid coming up on how to re-point a brick wall?

  6. If the cement between the bricks is brittle, I drill into the brick as well. But if the cement (masonry) is strong, I like to drill into that rather than than making a hole in the brick (the cement can be replaced/patched if needed later on).

  7. Painfree ??? Just the screaming Sound makes massive headache for other people nearby . Why don`t you use for work like this a pneumatic rotary hammer drill with SDS or SDS-PLUS System from HILTI , MAKITA or other Producers ? You could by cheap ones for under 80 Bucks , Makita for under 150 . They are much faster and not as noisy as the normal drillers. ( Neighbours will be grateful ) And with Motion Stop and mostly included SDS-Chisel they are able to make bigger holes and slots through Bricks and Concrete for cables and tubes you use a manually "powered" chisel …. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. On larger or heavy items I like to use two hooks or screws spaced a little space apart, say 1/4 of the width of the frame. This makes it much easier to level the frame and it stays level because it won't swing from the single hang point. I watch everything, keep it up.

  9. Eric, when we used braided cable wire for the hanger, we both tied/knotted it, then wrapped the end so it didn't hook someone or hang out. Looks professional to the client. FYI when drilling into brick, we duct tape the vac' hose to the wall. Then you safely have two hands on the drill. You're welcome. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Super enjoying your channelโ€ฆ Iโ€™m waiting for my hammer drill and bits in the mail so I can hang a canvas hanging on my cement wall in my little studio. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

  11. Thank you, Eric! I have a block house and am pretty sure the same method works. (can't tell you how many masonry drill bits I went through in the past!) You've explained this so well!!

  12. I love you! you are so cute! at first I saw that it was 7 minutes and I wasnt going to watch but, I really enjoyed it. you explained every little thing and why you do it and even showed how you can make mistakes etc. I Loooved it and am totally excited about taking on my first ever project! Cant wait to watch more of you!

  13. yeah you're a beautiful thing NO HOMO. anyway i am hanging an acoustic diy panel, and trying to figure out if i should go the concrete way against the wall, or hang from the ceiling which i would assume is a joist! since im renting, might go for the joist. either way this video was super useful.

  14. Holding the vac is super awkward, and possibly a safety issue. I get an A4 size piece of paper, fold in 2 and stick to wall below hole location so all the dust falls down into the crease.
