The best masonry cords in comparison

Many budding do-it-yourselfers are familiar with the term of the mason's cord, but only a few can provide more detailed information about the aid. As its name suggests, the bricklayer's cord has its origin in the bricklaying trade, where it is also called a guide or measuring cord. There it has been used by bricklayers for centuries to build both horizontal and vertical lines. When working correctly, the craftsman can build walls that are precisely aligned along the tensioned masonry cord. The prerequisite for dead straight walls is of course the correct use of the mason's cord, supported by a cord spirit level and the meter rule.

The bricklayer's cord is stretched horizontally between a starting point and an end point, which have been precisely determined beforehand by means of a tape measure. Here we recommend the use of so-called string irons, also called string nails, around which you can simply knot and tighten the mason's string. Alternatively, special wall cord holders are also available; for small walls, two loose bricks are also suitable, around which you can wrap the mason's cord and then tighten it tightly. Now simply wall the bricks along the cord and get a "dead straight" escape!

The mason's cord can of course also be used vertically or vertically. A weight is knotted to the mason's cord, the cord is thus tensioned and the vertical is aligned. You can now erect a straight wall at this vertical line.
