Package deal for the Little Dragon, Mixer and Bender!
Has anyone got conformation that their mixer was shipped? I have not got a new shipping label in my e-mail and the old one is still the same. Nothing has shipped yet?
My tracking says mixer was picked up by FedEx and will be delivered on the 14th.
Thanks, Mike. I have not seen any tracking on the USPS app for my package. Since I don't have a Fedex tracking number, I can't tell if Fedex will deliver on Wednesday, but I am glad that might be a possibility.
@FoamAir What type of cement did you use?
I found a smaller 47 pound bag of QuiKrete at Ace Hardware for about $10.00
The bag I got shows Type I/II, the website shows Type I
Types of Portland cement
There is actually little difference between a Type I and Type II cement, and it is common to see cements meeting both designations labeled as “Type I/II”.
Hope that helps,
@Joe You can But foam floats on top of cement slurry and you have to move it to the bottom of the mix. That is real hard to do with a paddle wheel like that in a 55 gallon drum.
@FoamAir What about the issue of injecting the foam into the mortar mix if using a mixer purchased elsewhere? Can another mixer be modified easily to allow injection of the foam into the mix? I live in Chile, and a 110V mixer is not convenient at all for me, plus I already have a heavy duty 220V drill.
Yes there are other ways of injecting the foam. Put an extension tube on Little Dragon to inject it into the mix while you are mixing.
@hajjargibran OK, thanks!
Hi Joel, sorry about the delay.
If you order these plans:
DIY Little Dragon and Foam Injector Plans
They will help you upgrade your drill/mixer to be like the foam injector Hajjar builds and sells!
Plus you will have a backup on how to build your own Little Dragon or repair it as needed. May be good insurance to have being in Chile!
Hope that helps you!
