Inside the Mason's Toolbox

The eye of an artist coupled with the mind of an engineer: that’s a mason.

Over the course of this program, viewers will learn about commonly used masonry tools; the attributes of brick, block, tile, stone, cast concrete, and mortar mixes; fasteners, wall ties, and mortar joint reinforcements; estimating material amounts; and on-the-job safety. The building of a brick wall from footing to cap showcases a variety of tools in action, including the brick tongs, mortar hoe, chalk line, hawk, trowel, bricklayer’s rule, mason’s hammer, brickset, power saw, and jointer.

Specialized tools for use with cast concrete, block, stone, and tile are also shown.
