I'm laying concrete stepping stones for a pathway - base is hard packed dirt/gravel - then a layer of sand - then the stones -
I've been told that I can use spec-mix to fill in the cracks, instead masonry sand. pour it on, brush it into the cracks - water it down

Is this true?

Answer: 
Yes, this is a common practice. Make sure the stepping stones are dry before covering them with the Spec Mix, Get the Spec Mix into the cracks by sweeping off the stepping stones and when done, make sure there is no Spec Mix left on top of them. Then carefully saturate the area, being careful not to splash any Spec Mix onto the stepping stones. Let the area dry and you are good to go..

SIDE NOTE:
Depending on the type of stepping stones you are using, sealing them with the appropriate sealer is often done BEFORE using the Spec Mix to fill in the cracks / grout joints. This helps protect the stepping stone in the event the excess Spec Mix was not swept off before applying the water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great results for a first time user setting cap stones on a concrete block retaining wall We recently built a retaining wall out of concrete blocks. While we used construction adhesive to bond the concrete blocks together, we made the cap stones from natural sandstone and cemented them to the top of the wall using this masonry mortar. Despite it being the first time I've ever done a masonry job, I found that this was very easy to mix by hand with a small shovel to a consistency I was comfortable working with. Even though it was almost 100 degrees on the day I was installing the cap stones on the wall, the mixed mortar stayed workable for quite a while, allowing me to mix it up in smaller batches as I needed it. I mixed it a little wetter than I needed since it was a very hot day and then let it sit for 5 minutes or so before giving it one more mix with the trowel. I also found that I could keep the unused mix in good useable shape by misting it with water from a pump sprayer if it was getting too dry from the heat. When laying the cap stones, I sprayed the top of the wall with some water before applying the mortar and then scooped out a 'V' down the middle with the trowel tip. I set the sandstone on top and used a rubber mallet to gently tap it into the mortar and ensure it was level. The mortar set up well and there was quite a good suction even when the cap stones were first set while the mortar was still wet. A day later the cap stones were solidly set. Clean up was also easy - In places where the mortar had dropped onto the rough face of the concrete blocks, I just sprayed it with water from the pump sprayer after I set each cap stone (before the mortar had a chance to dry) and brushed it with a nylon nail brush and then sprayed it with water again to stop the light grey mortar from staining the brown colored blocks. I also mixed in some small stones and sand with the mortar in a small batch to help me make up for a shortfall of concrete when I was laying the foundations and it worked very well for this too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of the Best out there I have used Spec-Mix for tuck pointing repairs on chimneys, to build a natural stone retaining wall, to set natural stone floors and larger dimension tile (20x20) and recently to grout a flagstone mat floor walkway I just installed. In all instances, the product exceeded my expectations: easy to work with, great working time, and performs exceptionally well! I find it mixes well with a power drill and paddle mixer, but mixing by hand is fine too. Mix for about 3-4 mins, let it "slake" up a bit (slake: basically means to leave it alone after mixing)- about 5 mins - the process lets all the ingredients mix together well, and some water evaporates in the mix - goes to ensure less shrinkage when you apply product. Re-mix for about 1-2 mins after letting it slake up. Then you can apply! I go an extra step and mix with a fortifier (Sika Admix available at HD) This white admix and bonder strengthens the mix, and makes sure it bonds well to whatever surface you are applying it to. Not necessary, but I like to go the extra step. February 9, 2012
