Atlas Stone Techniques:
Correct holding of a small stone
Correct holding of a large stone
How to apply and use tacky (and use tape, Eben doesn’t use tape or sleeves)
Stone carrying to a platform
Stone loading to a platform/yoke/bar
stone “popping” and high loading
How to “read a stone” i.e.: what to look for in a stone in how to pick it up. Avoid the flat side on a stone on the pickup, dusty stones will make tacky almost useless.
What clothing to wear for stone loading
