Re: [papercreters] Drill and blade suggestions



For small batches, a mortar mixer from harbor freight will work really well.  Just sharpen the blades.  Mortar is heavy work, so the mixer can take it.

Hello, I'm new to papercrete and excited to get started. I plan on mixing small batches. I've been researching drills but am a little wary. It seems as though many people have ruined the motors on drills mixing the slurry. Does anyone have suggestions for a good drill and blade?
Thanks,

Re: [papercreters] Drill and blade suggestions



The best you can afford.

PC is hard on motors - you might want to get a cement mixer if you have significant volume.

I use the Home Depot mixer - about $275 as I remember.

PLUS a tip on making forms - build them wider at the top than at the bottom - might have to experiment a bit.

[papercreters] Re: bad season for papercrete



The problems with slow drying P/C can be quickly remedied. Find yourself some discarded Latex paint that has not been frozen. This can be done by soliciting a variety of paint stores, professional painters, hardware stores, etc.. For the equivalent of (3) 5 gallon buckets that are being mixed, add 3 cup fulls of the paint, mix thoroughly. Be prepared to do your pour quickly cause you will have less than a half hour before cure-out. This is almost magical in the way it speeds curing. Be aware that your tools must be cared for quickly also. Now, this works with my mix design and I don't know how it will work with yours. I utilize Portland cement, construction lime, clay, sand, and the F/C slurry.

[papercreters] Bas season for block making




​My experience in making blocks or long elevated trays outdoors was to always cover with glass, and or lay a black plastic tarp under with air flow, and cover with black plastic too..on the PNW coast zones we get short summers, lots of fog, rain early some years and Oregon interior where Lost Valley alt. living  community is always gets wet ​weather, so lots of left over shower doors, old window, any old slider doors are propped over the blocks out to cure.

When I visited there I was impressed at how efficient they were in whole weedy areas with curing blocks, always elevated off the ground.  When we see AZ or TX heat they can form them on the dirt because they bake all day must faster there.

waiting too long to start  in summer doesn't help, and pouring very thick slows drying.  I tried lots of cardboard trays, so the water could soak thru a bit, but keep shape, and of course drained the mixes for a while first.
Mixes left on a screen over  a drum gets to a sculptable consistency and you can shape sculptures for the garden or play with ideas for art.
