    Ok you guys who use it I have read a few posts where guys have said there is deviation in thickness of the block and had to use 4 pallets to do a 2 pallet job etc. Is this still going on .....have a new dealer here and tempted to try it on a big job but dont want to get burnt. Obviously production screw ups can be regional.

    Also I guess you can use the blocks in a closed pattern or an open pattern?
    ie solid both sides or tapered one side.. tapered = cheaper ...curious what u guys do.

    i personally do not like the country manor wall.
    I don't like the "pillow top" look of the rounded faces...

    that is a personal thing i guess... We use a lot of celtic wall and i like the look of it much beter...

    The CM has large gaps between pieces, and i don't like the rendomly angled lines between the top caps..also some of the top cams have 3 textured sides and one smooth. this makes some of the top cap joints tight, and some are vert loose ( when two textured butt)

    That sounds like one of my jobs from a few years back. We've used it once since then and didn't have any problem. However, we just finished a job with Keystone century wall and the cup grinder was used quite a bit.
