[quote user="lttaylor56"][quote user="dezzzR"][quote user="lttaylor56"]Here's the latest on my concrete job:
Connecting a vertical slab to an existing horizontal slab. The Vertical slab will run about 3 feet in height by 1 foot thick and 5 feet wide. Footing is dug out. Earth tamped down. Forms partially assembled. I bored out 4 1/2" holes with my hilte hammer drill 1 foot deep into the existing horizontal slab. I will epoxy rebar into these hole and then bend them at 90 degrees to run thru the vertical slab all the way to footing. Additional rebar throughout. Lay gravel in base and do the pour either tomorrow or Sunday before Pat's game.
All of this to give extra support to a really thin generator slab that my electrician only poured 3.5 inches thick on a slight grade. I don't want the generator vibrating it's way off the grade. Better safe than sorry. LT builds strong ****.
[/quote] thats not going anywhere. rebar?lol a bit much, no?
one of my friends is/was in the rebar industry. he was directing a crane with a bundle of rebar, told the guy move it left and the guy dropped it, right on his leg. compound fracture. you can see the scar from where the bone popped out, they had to put a metal rode in his leg.
[/quote]Ouch!! That rebar is going one direction straight down and crushing anything underneath it. Dam.
The biggest drawback of making something so strong is having to dissassemble or move if necessary. I don't see the future need to do that --but if for some reason that were to happen this concrete is staying-I'll put a flower pot on it or something. lol.
Sounds like alot of work moving. When is the expected date to be operating out of the new location?
Good luck with everything.
