comment How can I lift buckets of mortar to second floor?
I think that would work nicely, I just need to figure out a way to make it a bit higher so that I can pull the bucket all the way up and bit away from the wall so that the bucket doesn't drag along it.

Concrete pump is overkill, and mixing materials up there is bad because of limited space to work. Each slab is 1.5x5.5 meters

comment How to mix a resurfacer/leveler with sand and cement?
It is not concrete, but it shouldn't crumble also. It was turning to dust and digging holes just by rubbing your shoe on it.

comment How to mix a resurfacer/leveler with sand and cement?
Thanks for the input. I tried to hit it a bit with a hammer to test how good the surface was, and it crumble to dust. So I used a rotary hammer and broke everything he had done (it was so "sandy" that i took 2-3 hours to break 10 square meters). Now after I remove it, I will properly clean it (using a power washer to remove all dust) and apply a new leveling layers. This time I will use a 1:4 cement sand, a little on the mortar side (maybe a little drier).

comment How to drill steel with large bit outside the drill press
Thanks, when I use the hand drill I also used oil (fine machine oil), but the speed on my bigger hand drill is trigger controlled, therefore it was hard to maintain it cool. But I liked the ice idea and will give it a try.

comment How do I shim a steel structure?
If I understood correctly, I would install the stringer, and then pour grout beneath it to fill the voids. Right? If that is the case I could use even wood shims on the edges to support the stringer before I pour the grout

comment How do I shim a steel structure?
The mortar would be so thin that I don't think it would adhere nicely, this is why I'm looking for a shimming solution. Having shims to bolt thru would be troublesome, since I would drill the concrete with the stringer in place and bolt directly. But I could tack the shims in place.

comment Hiding rain drain pipe below the sidewalk
Yes, this is why I need to make something (maybe a grate) so that it sits a few centimeters below the sidewalk level.

Those drains don't exist in Brazil, and the circular to rectangular tube has the problem of cloging.

Done. Don't know why, my first thought was to make a diagram instead of picture.
