Different kind of Sawing
« on: August 30, 2017, 02:49:10 pm »
The "engineer" and "construction foreman" messed up several years ago and did not allow for proper water runoff so I decided that it was finally time to correct my his mistake.

Yup, completely different sawing because this was the saw;
 

 
The rent on the saw is not bad, but those diamond blades are expensive.   :o
 

 
The two cuts will be 4" deep X 20'.  The chalk line did not stay with the cooling water running but it did serve as a guide.
 

 
I made about " deep cuts but the "saw" needed to rest at the end of each pass.   ;)
 

 
Done.  I made a few wobbles but no one will know it 100 years from now.  ;D  The best part of the job was leaving that saw back at the rental shop.  ::)
 

 
I opted for some heavy artillery for the removal.
 

 
That took about 30 minutes and was the best $15 that I ever spent.
 

 
Mississippi Pudding Stones.  Just in time before the "Harvey" rains get here.  At least now I will not have to deal with water all of the way to the back of my RV shed.

Well done.  Sometimes the pressure of knowing it is really supposed to rain is a good motivation to tackle those " when I get around to it"..... jobs.        Hope you stay mostly dry.  It sure dumped a massive amount already.  Really makes one remember that in spite of all the modern technology and progress, we still are just part of nature and all that can happen.    God Bless those affected folks.

Not that you really needed it but you might want to try a crayon the next time for marking the line.  I probably would have had the line meander down the road instead in a straight line like you did.  Both of those tools were definitely right for the job.

 :D I do not plan on there being a "next time" because this old puppy was whipped by the time I finished.  It will be interesting to see how it does tomorrow when we are forecast to get the most rain.   :P

Yup, a sledge would have done it, but that $15 was well spent.  The rental store is only a couple of miles away.   ;D

I've been helping my sale barn boss on his construction side a few times lately with concrete which is pretty much his specialty, only takes one 10 yard load to remember why this is a young man's sport.  I just wish I could get in on an easy job where we don't have to rake it 3/4 of the way across  :D.  You did good Lynn  ;).

Do now do you have to dig down and put a drain pipe?  Do you have a path for water to go?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!

Brad, I could put a 4" perforated sewer pipe in the slot, but for now I will be content to watch the water run off.   ;D

Would bar grating work? It'd have to be removable because you know bolts, nuts and tools will seek that slot out.

I rent one more thing for jobs like that, that brute breaker fits his hands better than mine  :D I've got a few of those tools I try to keep loaned out to the young bucks, it makes them easier to reel in later  ;D

in the same aisle with the perforated drain pipe they usually have some plastic trench drain that looks pretty good, if it fits.
