I used the granite/stone medium mortar they're talking about to screed my walls, and it works ok up to 3/4" for setting a medium mortar bed, but I have to warn you though...it's a VERY coarse finish and dries rapidly. It shrinks a tad, and you'll know right away when it's not workable any more, because it will start to tear, and you'll have to wait and patch it later. Bummer. The only advantage is the thickness. Not cool for filling a floor surface by hand - especially if something else has been set in the way like a 3/4" x R36" piece! Ugh...

I like John's suggestion. As an ameture I'd be willing to try that before using the med. granite/stone stuff for something like that. Try filling the space with something a little more manageable.
