what to use to hold the "crusher fines" in place. - garden railways magazine
I saw a posting where someone used a powder called Stabilizer from Stabilizer Solutions in Phoenix to hold the crusher fines in place so they don't wash away. I have made a couple of calls to them but haven't received a call back yet.Ths product is only available from themvia mailorder. Is there anything else that would work as well available at Lowe's that is the equivi;ant or would work. I need to get something on mine soon as winter is close by in Ohio.
Ok guys - how about this! There's a product made in Canada called TECHNO Seal, not Techni Seal, which is a similar product. Techno Seal is a polymeric sand, which comes in two colors, gray and tan. This product can either be used full strength or cut with any type ballast of choosing, but adding stone like stone dust (crusher fines) MUST be kept to a minimum (approx. 1/3rd or less mainly for color) for best adhesion.
Compared to other polymeric products out there this product is a bit pricey (approx. $30 - 40#), but in the long run well worth its cost because this product definitely WILL NOT *wash away when applied as directed. It's applied by brushing in dry, misted lightly with water three times and left to set.
*I used it on a concrete base and on 1/2" cement backer board for best results. On crusher fines, as a track base, I haven't had experience using it there, but wash away still shouldn't happen because its adherence to the track ties is amazing. Some cracking may occur over time depending on how heavily it's applied under and in between track ties set on a stone fill base.
After 4 years there's been no sign of cracking or wash away. I first
saw it used on a layout in the West Virginia Highlands where winter's reach well below
freezing with hot summers with no adverse affect on its use there or have I.
I tried using TiteBond 2 & 3, with small balist rock, cut 50% with water. It didn't hold thru last winter and it was a mild one here in central Missouri, just east of Jefferson City. One of my nabors is a turkey farmer and suggested trying turkey starters grit. This ismade from crushed granite and has very sharp edges.
The turkey grit comes in 3 grade sizes - small, medium and large. I re-ballisted my tracks (around 180 ft.) with the medium size grit, and used the large size for roads. So far, no problems with the rain washing out anything and I didn't glue the road ways.
I placed my ballist on and aroundmy tracks in June after wetting it down and brushing the excess away from the rails I tryed using my swiffer pad with rag soked in alcohal. All I did was make mud from the extra fine dust that spread on top of the rails. So after recleaning and removeingexcess ballistfrom next to the rails, pick up by the wet rag. I took out my Aristocraft track cleaning car after two pass's and still jerky operrtion. I added chunck of 380 grit sandpaper to the car. All was well till the first rain then I had to reuse the track cleaner. NOTE: I did not use any type of binder with the ballist. So if all I have to do is run my track cleaner before each run to have good operation then I'm happy.

granite & quartz countertops in albuquerque, nm | rocky mountain stone
Our kitchen tops were installed yesterday and we love the way they look. Measurements were perfect, the installers were professional, courteous, and did excellent work. I placed my order Nov 21st and we had countertops installed Dec 4th. Turn-around time was exceptional with no hidden surprises. I will definitely refer Rocky Mountain stone to friends. Overall buying experience = A+
Just wanted to say that Im extremely pleased with my new kitchen counters and bathroom vanity. Absolutely beautiful. And I thought Lucas and his partner did a meticulous installation. Im impressed with Rocky Mountain Stone. Many thanks and Ill certainly recommend you, with highest marks, to friends.
I just wanted to thank you so much for helping me get my dream kitchen!! I know you did my dad, Art Hull, a huge favor by helping us out, and my husband and I are so grateful. I appreciate all that you/your company did. I LOVE IT and really cant thank you enough!! My kitchen is beyond what I ever dreamed it would be! And Karen and Nicole were so nice to work with too and very helpful!
Thank you so very much!
I love my new kitchen counters! The granite is even more beautiful than I expected and was
a great price! Ed and Ignacio did my installation and did a fantastic job! The seams are perfect and they were very professional and courteous. Thanks very much!
I am so impressed with your service and will post my reviews. This is just a small job, but from beginning to end I have been treated like this is a $50k remodel better in fact. I did a large kitchen and 2 bath remodel in my previous home in Sacramento, and the surface people were nowhere near the caliber nor customer-focused perspective I have experience with RMS. Thanks so much, Kathy
Hi Karen, I just wanted to drop you a note telling you how amazing our hearth turned out. Its gorgeous and I just love it. The crew did a fantastic job too. Thank you so much for handling the project. Well be coming back to Rocky Mountain Stone for sure! Thanks, Christy Brannon
Rocky Mountain Stone tore out old formica counters, and installed granite counters. Rocky Mountain Stone is absolutely awesome. Our sales rep, Karen was extremely knowledgeable with the product line, and took the time to go over the various options. In the end, we got the product that was perfect for our kitchen. I cant say enough great things about the service we got.
The project went very smoothly thanks primarily to Karen, the RMS sales representative, who worked with me. She was extremely professional and very helpful from the beginning to the end of the project. Karen went above and beyond to make sure that I was able to get the granite that I wanted. She patiently worked with me on the design issues and made the overall experience very positive. The guys that did the installation also were very professional and clearly had a lot of experience. They worked carefully and efficiently and did a fantastic job. Just as a family member referred me to RMS, I will refer others to this company.
Assisted with the selection of the granite, met to discuss the specific layout on the stone, installed the granite countertops in the kitchen. We were very pleased with our experience with Rocky Mountain Stone. The sales representative met us several times at the granite supplier to assist with the selection of the stone. She then made recommendations on complementary backsplash tiles. Once we selected the stone, she met with us to discuss the best layout of the countertops on the stone to get the best pattern placement. The installers were prompt and professional. The were conscientious and worked extremely hard and made it look great. The salesperson had worked on the pattern matches, so the seams are very unnoticeable. We are very pleased with how it turned out. We definitely had a great experience with Rocky Mountain Stone.
