22. What are profiles constructed out of? 23. What information would you find on a title panel? 24. How do you take care of a cowley level? 3 1. Why must you take care when setting out? Mistakes during the setting-out stage can be very expensive to put right. Always check and recheck before starting any work. 2. Why should you reverse a straight edge each time you move it? When levelling with a straight edge and level, it should be reversed end on end each time it is used. This will counter any inaccuracies in the straight edge or level.

Actual size – the size of an individual brick or block as measured on site. It may vary from the work size, within certain allowances for tolerance. Arch – an arrangement of bricks that span an opening. It is usually curved in shape, but it may also be flat. Arris – any sharp edge of a brick formed by the junction of two faces. Axed arch – an arch formed of voussoirs that are cut to a wedge shape with a brick hammer and bolster chisel. g. half bat or three-quarter bat. Bed – the horizontal layer of mortar on which a brick is laid.
