Given the choice, which makes more sense? Either way i need a mixer but i can either cast blocks and stack them later, (have a way to raise the mud) or i can pour them into forms and let them dry in place. Somehow it keeps coming back to cast in place. :)

DC when I got in on some of that we had to heat the mud or the moisture would'nt ever get right and they just crumbled when we stacked them.

We ended up building a fire pit about 4'X4'X4' then air stacked the brick over it to carry the smoke and conduct the heat. They got smokey but did make a good brick.

Mebbe wait....    Posted 04-21-2004 at 08:52:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
