In Response To: hangng pegboard (Kevin Kouns01, at 3:56 p.m.)

Kevin, I used the blue concrete screws, 1"x2"s and construction adhesive. Layout a frame 4'x 8' (if that's the sheet size you got) with another 4' piece down the middle and drill through the wood every 8 to 10 inches or so. Then mark the block wall using the drilled holes in the wood and drill for the blue screws. Make sure you use the recommended drill size for the screws, I found out they are not that forgiving. Put adhesive on the wood and secure to the wall. Then put adhesive between the wood frame and the pegboard. I used sheet metal screws and flat washers(# 8 or 10). This arrangement served quite well as far as the support it provides. I moved recently and left the pegboard. Discovered they don't make 1/8" pegboard anymore. However I am able to use most of my old hdware in the new 1/4" stuff I put up in the new place.
