Re: Dry Casting Concrete Brackets

Very similar to casting sand molds for casting iron at local foundry. with out air hammers.....

Our States Amish use intentionally a low strength concrete pack mix for their precast tombstones, so they'll only last a couple of generations in the cemetery before returning to dust with the gravestones' owners.


I might be an Idiot, but I know things that You don't: Please wait till after you get my know-how to insult me....
