For you woodworkers...

I have some lag hooks that I'm going to install in my ceiling joists in the garage. They're rated for 250 lbs and threaded so I can screw them directly into the wood. I'll be using this to hang some exercise rings for the family to use.

My coach has used them in a previous gym and he's confortable w/ their use and my use will be less strenuous.

My question is this, is it OK to drill a pilot hole to ease screwing it in? Or will that weaken the attachment? It's about 2" long, maybe a 1/4" in diameter.

Personally, I'd prefer to drill through the joist and use a threaded ring setup with a washer/nut on the other side. But...yes, if you are installing lag screws, you'll absolutely need a pilot hole.

And they'll take their maximum load best by being installed toe in (perferable) or both toe out, not perpendicular to the drilling surface.

I'm at my best when filthy innuendo is involved. I know, I know. That makes me, like, soooooooo unusual here.

There's a Marilyn Chambers series??? I have loved her since her first Ivory Snow box.

She seemed so much more like she meant it, all of it, than most of the others. I've always hated a "phoned in" performance. Especially in porn.
