    Anyone making their own bricks, pavers, cobblestones, stones, ledgestone, riverrock, stepping stones, etc using molds? The idea sounds great to me, but would like to maybe get some feedback before purchasing a mold to experiment with.

    If this sounds interesting to any curious ppl like myself check out

    Manufacture and retail through local landscape supply stores?

    Give you something to do during winter months.

    we make our own concrete extension rings for septic tanks...basically if you dont know they bring the lid of the septic tank to within 12" grade...we have our own molds, 12" and 24" molds... we use a 50/50 mix of diesel fuel and hydraulic oil to coat the molds with before we pour the crete...which we mix in our own mixer...if you make them in the winter make sure you do it in a shop with a torpedo heater on them
