play_circle_filled When I was younger, an old timer once told me that every stone mason should have a banker table.  After 17 years in the trade, I finally built one and it’s a life changer.  I’m no longer dressing stones with one knee on the ground with an aching back and sore knees!  #chiselstoneworks #impressionsinstone #bostonspremierstonemasons #customstonework #masonry #custommasonry #worktable #bankertable #stonedressing #hammerandchisel #stonework #stonemason @1620usa @trowandholden @estwingmfg

photo_library Preparation for stone dressing. The first job is to true up the oak staff which is the straight edge I use to check the surface of the mill stone. I do that by using the proofing staff which is a heavy flat piece of steel. I use a vegetable oil to coat the proofing staff and then put the oak staff on it, which will shows up the high points. To remove the high points I use a small chisel and repeat this process until I have a nice flat surface. #clearasmud #stonedressing #tradition #charlecotemill

More progress on the bed stone which is needing more work than the runner. Jeremy spent a good amount of time on it yesterday and it’s moving on nicely. We’ve been concentrating on flattening the surface of the stone to make it more even before addressing the levels. #stonedressing #millstone #charlecotemill #stonegroundgoodness

play_circle_filled The #stonedressing to the S/W stones is well on the way. I’ve made a short #slowmotion video showing the process of removing the high spots and correcting the levels of the #millstone using the traditional tool called a ‘mill bill’. I was amused to learn that when the video slows down it sounds like I’m ringing a bell! 😆 #iwasntexpectingthat #tradition #charlecotemill #maintenance

The dressing of Stone is the working of quarried stone into the shape and size required for the use on a project. A necessary step as stones coming from quarrying generally do not have the exact required dimensions or finish.
#Stonedressing requires technical skill, and a good understanding of materials, design drawings and specifications.

Stone dressing is defined as “The process of giving a proper size and shape to stone blocks as obtained from the quarry.” This exposes layers of stone from this 8,500 kg or 18,600 lb block, capturing a part of history that has been frozen in time.  From quarry to construction, the earth has proven to be the best manufacturer of materials that are as beautiful as they are durable.⠀

photo_library When I look at these old machines, I often think we no longer have the skill, will or aptitude to create something so functional and beautiful. 
1870's saw a real move away from craft to science. The mill pick could be replaced by Gilmore's revolving diamond millstone dressing and facing machine. I wonder if the 'four-quarter dress' technique which we still use today, was the final millwright's advancement that allowed for visioning of a mechanical process. There is a Capability Maturity Model in the systems world - step 2 is repeatability. 
If it didn't happen twice, it didn't really happen.
