    Ok, thanks. Just having a look for a suitable set of hinges that might make that work.

    Fix Timber to Concrete Fence Post

    I think I am missg something. I've attached a pic of some pretty lightweight hinges I have outside. This is the same type of hinge on one gate and two sheds. They all need 30mm of post showing in order to fit the hinge? I cant see how I would do that if the gate is 900mm and the gap between...

    The gate is 900mm wide, the gap as you say is about 915mm. I don't have the hinges to hand, but the other I have at home on gates/sheds need at least an inch to fit the hinge. I can't see how this would leave enough room to do inside?

    The new one isn't really lending itself to modification ☹️☹️

    Ah, that won't work then. As I say the gap between the two inner edges is only 915mm. The gates 900mm, so there isn't enough room ☹️

    Thanks mate. So I will stick with my first idea, with your suggestion of coach bolts, SDS drill (not hammer), and that Bosch bit. When you say take into account the rebate, what did you mean? And that's lead me to remember I somehow need to fit some timber to act as a rebate. Any ideas? Just...

    And just before I do buy the stuff...can I confirm I am not missing an easier solution. Heres a pic of the fence posts. There is an old gates that has just been leaning in the gap for 10+ years. Time to sort it! The gate shown is 900mm wide (seems to be standard. Gap between the posts is...

    I've found that multipurpose bit. I don't have a core bit. Happy to buy whichever is best....

    Thanks - yes they are the green exterior. I'll have a look for the right size as the ones I linked to were 200mm and would need to be cut. Next query. I have my own mains combi drill and can borrow a SDS drill. Which shall I use and what drill bit will get me through the post with least grief!

    Fix Timber to Concrete Fence Post

    Thanks again. Posts are 4 inch and timber is 2 inch. Can you point me to a supplier of these, struggling to find them

    Fix Timber to Concrete Fence Post

    Thanks. The downside with these is having to drill all the way through I guess, which is why I had looked at the other options. Do you think 2 of these per post (top, middle, bottom) will be ok or better with 3? What size would you suggest and any idea where I can get then. I would think I am...

    Fix Timber to Concrete Fence Post

    After a bit of advice. I need to fix some 4x2 to the flat edge of a concrete fence post. It'll be about 6 foot or so long. This is on two posts to create something I can attach a gate to. I'll brace across the top. I've read all about the issues with drilling concrete posts, and looked at...
