Filling holes suitable for re drilling

Post by mark8par » Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:25 pm

I am wanting to fill some holes and re drill them.

It will need to be able to take the weight of a tv bracket and tv, what would you suggest using, what is the strongest stuff to use?

Thanks

Simplest option is to drill larger holes for a larger fixing.

What material are you drilling into - and do you expect to make a new hole in the filler?
One day it will all be firewood.

If its into stone fill them with resin, imho the filler will not hold once drilled out
