Advanced Hands-on Cemetery Preservation
Workshop. Sept. 9, 2007
White Chapel Cemetery, Carmel, Indiana.
Thank you John, Micki, Kelly and Danny.
Using the tri-pod or hoist
Remember this takes more than one person to
use, know the limits. Center the tri-pod,
set support boards to receive the stones. Double check the straps. Lift and remove. Level
the bottom base with sand and pea gravel to a plumb level. Tamp and level the ground
around the base. Clean connecting areas, re-attach each layer with appropriate materials.
Walt used the stack mix, setting compound and see the plastic setting cushions. Trim
excess setting compound. Connect the next level. Practice, practice and practice. ;-)
Ok, my camera died. So did anyone get the finished photo?
