I'm having a little problem getting my furring strips to stick. I know I'm using the right tapcon drill bit, 3/16" for my screws. I think I had 2 out of 10 work right.
I'm using my hammer drill.
What am I missing?
1/4 inch tapcons are a little large for furring strips.
Are you sure you have the correct drill bit???
Are you using the hammer drill to screw them in? It might be hammering and breaking the groove they cut in the masonry. Or you might have crumbly material. I don't know what the Tapcon people think about it, but I have been known to use a match stick to shim a screw that's too loose.
I had two tapcon bits...the right one and the larger one. I assumed they were the same size and they weren't.
