Re: Scraping out

Generally, when we hung, we didn't scrap out, but the scrap was organized. We would try to get it to the most accessible room/ window

You want me to fix what? want me to do it for how much!?

Re: Scraping out

Scraping sucks, I hang every once in awhile and I clean as I go, as in set my cuts by the rock all in one pile. That's the only way I can work efficiently. These fellas just dropped it where they cut. And I don't know why the paper either hell scrape em and sweep em and get paid!
