Please note

Because of the lack of published trowel and masonry tool histories, the information here is based on other sources that may be less reliable and certainly are incomplete. These include eBay and tools that I purchase myself that are the starting points for my research. I will write what I know as I learn it. If what you read here interests you, please check back often and look for revisions and corrections. Scanned catalogs are either mine or by Rose Antique Tools and used with permission, and are on Google Docs as pdf files. A few are links to other websites. Your photos and information are welcome.

Collectible Levels

Levels are another tool collectible on their own or with other mason's tools. The preferred level for masonry is the brass bound mahogany 4 foot level, and other wooden levels have been used by masons for 200 years.
