    Dave is there anything you don't know about related to tiling.

    Perhaps the rest of us could get together one night and answer one of your questions.

    no probs craig..if you are going to re-tile the floor...you will need to put an expansion joint exactly where the timber floor meets the concrete one..this can be a pre-made joint or a silicone joint..( use silicone same colour as grout )...

    as for drill attachment...if your drill is a SDS type then you can get a chisel bit from any diy store.......
