Well, I am happy that this is finished. It was more work than I expected :D :D ...but what else is new right.

Here are some pictures showing the gluing process:

Glue is applied in a heavy coat and grade gets final adjustments.

Tilling implement mixes the glue and the minus granite.

Granite and glue mix prior to rolling:

Mike,
Very nice! Now you want get those Cub tires dirty :D
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

Thanks guys :D

This process is still fairly new out here. It is about 1/3 the cost of concrete, and about 1/2 the cost of asphalt or chip and seal.

The surface compaction of the finished driveway is about 1600 psi, compared to 1200-1400 for asphalt and 2000-2500 for concrete.

Ralph, you should look into this for your place. Would save you $$$$ over concrete 8)
