comment How to drill steel with large bit outside the drill press
Thanks, when I use the hand drill I also used oil (fine machine oil), but the speed on my bigger hand drill is trigger controlled, therefore it was hard to maintain it cool. But I liked the ice idea and will give it a try.

comment How do I shim a steel structure?
If I understood correctly, I would install the stringer, and then pour grout beneath it to fill the voids. Right? If that is the case I could use even wood shims on the edges to support the stringer before I pour the grout

comment How do I shim a steel structure?
The mortar would be so thin that I don't think it would adhere nicely, this is why I'm looking for a shimming solution. Having shims to bolt thru would be troublesome, since I would drill the concrete with the stringer in place and bolt directly. But I could tack the shims in place.

comment Hiding rain drain pipe below the sidewalk
Yes, this is why I need to make something (maybe a grate) so that it sits a few centimeters below the sidewalk level.

Those drains don't exist in Brazil, and the circular to rectangular tube has the problem of cloging.

Done. Don't know why, my first thought was to make a diagram instead of picture.

That is exactly the case, I got an answer about that in a forum and forgot to update it here. Have an approved answer.

comment Can/should I install the breaker box in an annexed room?
The laundry it is then. A follow up, can I put the breaker box above the washing machine? Or should the floor directly in front of it be clear? It would still be accessible and visible, just an arm strech away. If not, I can also manage another position for it in the laundry. Also, is there any risk on having a breaker box besides a gas water heater?
