Ray: I was able to clean up the cob mixing problems once and for all. Hi Ray.. after 13 years of cobbing in the US finally people don't want to cut their feet? I know the newly excited converts to cob, and purists want the feel of squishy clay and rocks, it is more the experience than the practicality of using a human foot for sure. didnt someone create some sets of clamp on "handles" to be used with tarps? was that you? they sold them in sets and you just added them as you have onto a tarp and then people stomped on the folded over tarp and kept their feet and legs clean and un cut or bruised. I thought this was a clever idea you have. I used to get those bill board tarps, have cut them down from 40" x 14" to 10' lengths, etc, and given them to local people, most use as temp rain roof for a wood pile, but the bill board tarps are perfect for heavy duty cobbing. also they have a sewn flap along both long sides of the tarp for a 2x4 to slide into for fixing top the billboard frame. ( like the flap that a curtain rod goes thru on a curtain) this flap can be used to help hold the clamps, or clipped on either side of a 4" span, can serve as a pass thu to hold a rope, making a fast handle too.
