A Lesson Learned the Hard Way

He told her he didn’t need to find a wall stud, because he had half-inch toggle bolts. It worked for about a month, but when it did’t, it was a complete disaster. It took some guts for northfoggybrook to post the picture, but it was too funny not to. Along with some funny jokes and endless ribbing, commenters were glad to give advice on how to hang your TV on the wall the right way. That is, for when he can afford to buy another TV.

Aaargh. I've got a similar problem for a customer. They want a very large telly stuck on the wall in a room with plasterboard walls. Only plasterboard. No studs. The oak timbers are close enough together for there to be no need for studs just at the point where they want the telly. Can I screw into the oak? No.
So...I think it's out with the welder and make something that will transfer the load to the floor - but slim...with luck I can disgujise it in the tunking that will carry the cables to the telly. That way the wall only has to take a tiny fraction of the weight.
