I'm installing a wall section on an old concrete slab. I bought the tapcon 1/4" anchors with their recommended drill bits.
I have a cheap Black and Decker 1/2" hammer drill. This setup is just not working. I have drilled maybe 3 holes and have already gone through all 4 bits. In addition, Tapcon recommends drilling the hole 1/4" deeper than the fastener, but for the 3 3/4" fasteners, the drill bit is not long enough.
Should I try a different drill bit, or do I need to rent a rotary hammer?
I also thought of the Remington powder actuated fasteners.
Last but not least, I've never tried it, but can you nail into concrete with a hammer?
