Folks sometimes ask me how do I know "that"? How could I possibly know that "that" would happen? I chuckle and answer "that’s because I have good judgment...and good judgment is based on experience...and experience is based on bad judgment...I have lots of experience."
We often learn more from failure than we learn from success. We don’t always know why something works when it works. Maybe we got lucky. Maybe we don’t understand what is really going on? With a failure, if we examine it carefully, we can learn and hopefully avoid the failure the next time.

GacoFireStop2 should be mixed using a 3-Stage Collapsible Blade Mixer. Note: Auger style mixers are insufficient and should not be used to mix GacoFireStop2.
With the 3-Stage Collapsible Blade Mixer in hand, make sure the three blades are evenly spaced out from top to bottom on the shaft. With GacoFireStop2, it is crucial that you be able to mix material in the top with the material in the bottom - if all the blades are on the lower end of the shaft this cannot be achieved.
