One shovel full of lime per MIX,I guess I should have clarified.

To make good,big mix:

160lbs of Portland, 2 shovel fulls of lime. 40-45 shovels of sand.

Hastopur so there is play to it.

A wheel barrel, hoe, & shovel! I only do small batches for repair work around my masonry woodworking shop. When I capped the floor 1/4", I used a grout type mixer in a 1/2" drill. When I closed in a 12" wall w/10x 8 door opening, it was a wheel barrel.

My dad, a 1913 German imigrant, was a mason for most of his life. He used to have an old hit & miss mixer that was huge! I believe it was a Stover engine. It's been 50 years since I heard it run, but I can stll remember how it ran like it was yesterday.

Thanks for the mix, & clarification.
Joe

Keep in mind,I should have clarified only one shovel of lime per mix...full mix one shovel of lime...always..don't put whole bag...that's only for finish
