Sliders

After laying our Velcro mortar (4-point barbed wire), a slider is placed on the wall and the bag stand is set up on top of the slider. This allows the bag to be slid into the desired position on top of the barbed wire without getting stuck to it. Make sure to place the slider where you want the bag to be filled. The bag will still be heavy but relatively easy to maneuver on the slider until it is laid down onto the barbed wire. (Fig. 3.11).

Sliders can be made from any heavy gauge metal sheathing, from used galvanized heating ducts to hammered metal roofing. Useful sizes range from 16 inches (40 cm) by 18 inches (45 cm), or smaller or larger depending on the size of the bags being used. A variety of sizes are handy for tight spaces next to forms or for closing in a gap where two teams of wall builders are destined to meet.

3.12: The row is tamped from above until the dirt goes from making a dull thud sound to a distinctive ringing sound.

3.13: Full pounders and quarter pounders.
