This invention relates to a mason’s guide and
more particularly to devices for establishing a
line between corners of masonry construction by
which the mason may be guided in laying subse
quent layers of masonry.
The principal object of the invention is the pro
vision of a pair of spring tensioned guide line
brackets thereto with a section of guide line to
establish a mason’s guide.
A further object of the invention is the provi 10
masonry wall under construction and illustrating
a pair of the mason’s guides in position thereon
holding a guide line therebetween.
By referring to'the drawing and Figure 1 in
particular it will be seen that the mason’s guide
consists of a pair of similarly formed, appro
priately shaped body members I!) and I I, each of
which is provided with an offset portion ItiA and
HA, respectively, and eachv of which is provided
with a clamping member i2 and I3, respectively.
The clamping members I2 and l3 are affixed to
the body members Ii] and II, respectively, by
sion of a mason’s guide consisting of an’ appro
priate length of guide line and means affixed to
the guide line for tensioning it and holding it in
means of screws I4 and I5. Each of the body

to overlie a corner of the masonry construction
and to be retained in such position by means of a
guide line stretched between a pair of the devices,
one on each corner of the wall area being formed.

By referring to Figures 2, 3 and 4 of the draw
ing enlarged detailed views of the body member
H, which is identically formed with the body
member It], may be seen. It will be observed that
when the body members It and I I are operatively
positioned on a section of guide line such as that
indicated by the numeral I9 and the body mem

. relation to one another, the guide line I9 will
normally lie in the channel It and be snubbed

It will thus be seen that when a pair of the
