People afraid to ask would Google it first. If not, I'd probably Google what to think about them.

What about stone wall anchors?

I have some old wall on land and want to use its stones into a wall. Do you have any suggestions?

I guess its really for everyone's consumption, I learned a bit reading through this and thought others might enjoy after the snob thread

LOL shuellmi at the background discussion behind you posting this, but on a serious note:

Those trade publications like Masonry Magazine and Fine Homebuilding and Journal of Light Construction and whatnot are SO valuable when it comes to learning how buildings go together!  I encourage young architecture grads to look at the pictures in the glossy mags abut then *read* the articles in these magazines. Super helpful.

Also the material-specific forums like the famous John Bridge forum are pretty incredible but! require a bit more skepticism and knowledge to wade through. Everyone on John Bridge has *passionate* opinions about things like which backer board is best and when to use sanded vs. unsanded grout. Without some basic understanding of your goals they go into far more detail than most architects are ready to engage. I mean, if I were to innocently ask "What style of tile is this?" on John Bridge, as we often get people asking here, I woudl likely be flamed so hard I wouldn't survive. Contractors can throw a slam far more painful than we designers are able! (Well, most of us, anyway.)

I have an old stone institute book which I refer to for all "stone stuff," you may be able to sweet talk a rep into giving you one

Dad got me a fine homebuilding subscription one year - great mag, even if it is all residential.  I'll have to check out light construction

SMACNA and BIA are the best for finding those essential details for metal and masonry
