[TowerTalk] Cement Drilling and Bolt affixing

Hello all,

I am in need of drilling two holes, about 1.5 or so inches in my tower
cement pad to add a restraint to my tower base.  I will probably use 1"
bolts about 12" long.  Will need about 4" of bolt above the cement pad.

My situation,  after drilling the hole for the bolt, I understand that there
is a compound I can use to "glue" the bolt into the hole.  I have never done
this where there would be vertical pull on a bolt, only pressure broadside
to it.

What recommendations might y'all have out there.

By the way, this "bracket" is to take a small flex out of the tower base and
will remain on a permanent basis.  Only removed if the tower needs to be
tilted over.

Thanks for your assistance in advance.
