How do I fix a wooden post to a concrete Fence post

Postby paulhewes » Sat Jan 14, 2012 6:55 pm


I have a fence along the edge of my drive which is made up of wooden panels slotted into concrete slotted fence posts. I would like to put a pair of gates across the drive. I can easily fix a wooden post to the brickwork on one side of the drive to hang the gate on but how do I fix a wooden post to the existing slotted concrete post smooth face so I have a wooden post to hang the other gate onto.
Would be glad of any expert advice. Thanks.

The concrete posts have steel bars running through the centre,So drill slowly and use thunderbolt fixings to fix yourtimber to,no rawplugs are required.
