Brick house demo continues

Reclaiming all bricks from this 1860's red brick farmhouse to reuse on our new garage. Garage is new construction attached to 1880's brick two story. Want to make it look original. Removing and chipping bulk mortar, tossing down 20-30 then climbing down to stack and clear landing area again. Breaking fewer than originally anticipated...those that break do so when they hit the ground. About 75% done removing, then will set up a 12' long plank to final clean one side, then palletize. Will be able to clean 36 at a time....then repeat a bunch of times.

Type in gobricks in computer hit technical notes then read salvaged brick i believe it is #15.Also do not use portland cement in mortar.I guarntee it was not used in oringal mortar.The first load was not importated in to USA wntil 1871. IT will be to hard for your soft bricks.
