Here's some pics of the stone i'm refinishing.Limestone and travertine rehoning and enhancing sealer.Grinding down with 120 metals, then 120/220/400 resin pads so as not to be too slippery.Normally i'd go to 800's.Using the Mytee to pressure extract the slurry and give it a good cleaning,using D2 for the mildew, and MK alkaline cleaner for the dirt,with a Malish brush on the buffer.

The Mytee is great at vacuuming and scrubbing with high pressure.

I'll be up at 3:30 am tomorrow heading out to Hollywood to Forest lawns.
We are doing a project that involves putting 14" marble panels on walls that
cover urn cubbies. I'll make sure to try and get plenty of pics to share. We'll
be doing another cricket system floor in this mausoleum.

Dave, I really want to learn restoration. Shame you live 3k miles away
Looks like the job is easy on the eyes

Jack,

Is Forest Lawn the cemetery up on the hill over looking the freeway?

Dave,

Is the Mytee a pain in the ass to use inside, as far as hoses and blown circuits are concerned?

It is quite a bit of work for one guy, but there's not enough to split between two guys right now.The Mytee is typical in that you need two separate circuits to run the two vacuums, inlet pump and discharge pump.It weighs about 225 and is a pain, but is much better than a wetvac as far as an intense cleaning and getting rid of the slurry.It has taken me years to get this restoration thing learned and am still learning.There are many classes but it takes hands on of course to fully grasp it.There are five different types of stone here, each requiring different techniques,plus miles of steps and hand work with various machines.

Came down with a very bad dose of the flu during this install and put me out for a week but the homeowners were very understanding.

This is the Columbarium of Truth and Light This is a mausoleum for urns.
The silver you see is stainless steel privacy panels that basically sit in place
and cover the box the urn sits in. There are no urns in place now, but from
an angle when the marble plates are removed you would be able to later.

The black lines are metal stud framing,
with adjustable screw mount brackets that receive a rosette and screw that
hold these 14" -3/4 thick marble tiles. All tiles are pre-cut with ALL marble veining
matching.
The end caps will be bonded to the concrete walls, the boxes will have statues.
The skinny strip left out will receive a 4"x18" +/- granite chair rail. Cant tell
from these pics but there will be a second color on the walls

I'll be leaving again tomorrow at 4:30 am. Wont be able to answer any questions
until friday. We are getting a room and staying for a couple days. This is
another job for the fine folks at Forest Lawns.
