Construction tools

  1. 1. Vigyan Ashram, Pabal
  2. 2. TOOLS Spirit level It is used to check the horizontal level of construction. The bubble in the tube should be at the center to make the level horizontal.
  3. 3. Water tube To check all points of wall are at same level, a simple water tube is used. It uses the simple principle of ‘water remains at the same level’.
  4. 4. Plumb – bob •Plumb – bob A plumb is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, that is suspended from a string. It is used as a reference line for leveling vertical length. Ref fig. 6 (a) Mesons used this method to ensure that their constructions are perfectly upright
  5. 5. String Line You must have seen meson using string for laying bricks of foundation. A line is described by two points, the start point and the end point, and the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. A mason uses a string line between two points (nails or line blocks etc.) and he pulls the line tight to get it the shortest distance, to make it straight, with no sag. He take this string as a reference to complete his work.
  6. 6. A trowel is one of several similar hand tools used for digging, smoothing, or otherwise moving around small amounts of viscous or particulate material. A bricklayer's trowel (also known as a pointing trowel) is a tool with a handle and flat metal blade, used by masons for leveling, spreading, or shaping substances such as cement, plaster or mortar, as well as for breaking bricks to shape them or smoothing a mould. Brick trowels are traditionally made of carbon steel, but some newer versions are made of caststainless steel, which has longer wear and is rust-free.
  7. 7. A trowel is  one  of  several  similar hand  tools used  for  digging, smoothing, or otherwise moving around small amounts  of  viscous  or  particulate  material.  A   bricklayer's  trowel (also  known as a pointing trowel) is a tool with a handle and flat metal  blade,  used  by masons for  leveling,  spreading,  or  shaping  substances  such  as cement, plaster  or mortar,  as  well  as  for  breaking bricks to  shape  them  or  smoothing  a  mould.   Brick  trowels  are  traditionally  made  of carbon  steel,  but  some  newer  versions are made of caststainless steel, which has longer wear  and is rust-free.
