kurt Posted April 25, 2007 Report Share Posted April 25, 2007 I spent a truly informative day @ Union Local 52 on Masonry Restoration. It was put on by the IMI / International Masonry Institute. Unlike the BIA or MIA, the IMI is focused around the trade & craftworkers, i.e., the folks that do the work. We spent 2 hours in class and 4 hours hands on in the lab replacing lintels, practicing tuckpointing, learning about terra cotta restoration w/a range of new products from Edison Coatings, practicing our hand @ caulking w/industrial caulking equipment, and a fantastic slide presentation about Natural Cement, which to my embarassment, I'd never even heard of before. They've got a very nice bunch of masonry details, downloadable in .pdf format for anyone that's interested. The details can also be "played" in Media Player; very nice. http://www.imiweb.org Check out the moron getting schooled in lintel replacement.....
