testing a trick tube tying tool

clips thru 'er so far. About 15 mis fires, mostly my fault.

I changed the ball handle to a loop handle and it is much easier on my hand. It's also easier to "steer" into position with the loop.

I'm guessing this will save me 10- 12 hours of bending over and tying on this job.

6:00 AM will show how well they hold, as the concrete starts flowing

I've been sweating my way through this 9200 square footer in our 90F heat. Getting too old for this ;)

    Keep us informed. Again it looks like you were following the mesh pretty consistently.

    Tool

    Nice looking job, HR. What is it? Who makes the tool you are using.

    We are starting a 8500 sq. ft. driveway in a couple of weeks. This will be the first real test of our new Max tie tool. We have used it on some small slabs but it will be interesting to see how it does on a big project. -DF

    I've seen it around, but

    never used one yet. It's good to hear it works well.
    It looks like you used 12" and 18" loops. How would this tool work if you wanted to install 9" loops on 6" square wire mesh?
    That would help me a lot on some jobs I got coming up.

    "Getting too old for this ;)"

    Bob, maybe you'll be put out to pasture like me!

    Too old/slow to be of any physical use; too knowledgeable to be paid by someone else what it's worth; too tired to overcome the first two obstacles.

    I may end up in an orange box yet. :-(

    Nice

    At one time I had thought about something like a hog ring plier that could be used standing up. This is a LOT better than that idea. ;-)

    I think your guys would prefer

    this stand up tool. It worked very well on this large job. 5/8" pex on number 8 remesh was the outer limit of it's grasp. I doubt it would handle 3/4"

    A few mods would make this a great tool. I'm not sure if they are on the market yet, Dan I may be able to get this one to you for a demo.

    Paul, to get a 15\" oc

    I alternate 12" then 18"

    It needs to follow a wire it would not work mid way on 6" mesh.

    Some guys use a double layer of mesh, staggered to give you the 3" grid. Costs you double the mesh.
