RHINO RULERS
RHINO RULERS


The RHINO RULER was developed by a contractor working "hands on" in the field.  Wooden spacing rulers he used simply did not stand up to the extreme weather conditions he faced... they would warp, the paint would peel off, and the worst of all, they break very easily.

Through extensive research and field testing, the final product is a weather proof folding ruler that can take as much abuse from the elements as you do.


The 1619 BG Brick Spacing Ruler is used for laying standard residential sized bricks.  With this ruler, each equally spaced courses of brick is signified by the same number:  "1's" through "0's".  Each space allows for the brick plus the mortar joint.

 


The Modular scale is used for laying all types of masonry products within a 2" modular grid.  Concrete blocks are installed and sometimes it is necessary to lay other smaller bricks to meet the same final elevation.  This scale allows several sizes of brick and block to work together in the same grid.

 


The 1618 OG Oversize Brick spacing ruler is used for "Queen" and "King" sized bricks.  With this ruler, each equally spaced course of brick is signified by the same letter:  "A's" through "K's".  Each space allows for the brick plus the mortar joint.

LUFKIN® RULERS & MEASURING TAPES

LUFKIN® RULERS & MEASURING TAPES

Lufkin® Red End® Brick Mason's Rulers #636 & #656

* Used by bricklayers.
* Graduated vertical inches to 1/16ths, both edges.
* Brick mason's scale on inside, red course counters numbered consecutively.
* Regular outside markings in black.
* Using the Lufkin® "Red End" #636 Brick Mason's Rule is easy and fast.
* To Take a measurement when mortar thickness is known:  As an example, assume mortar thickness is 1/2" and the average thickness of brick is 2 1/4".  Added they would give a 2 3/4" course.  Simply place your thumbnail on the edge of the rule at 2 3/4", turn over to the other side, and your thumbnail will be on the scale 6 mark.  This is the correct scale to use under the above conditions.  Correct readings from the top edge of bricks are at scale 6.    This rule speeds up correct scaling when an open space is to be bricked.  There is but one simple operation when only space is known.  Just measure the space with the scale side of the rule to the closet scale mark.  This will give you the correct scale to use.  For instance, assume that a space 37" is to be bricked.  Using the Brick Mason's scale side of the rule to measure, the 37" figure falls between scale 4 and scale 8.  Checking both these scales, by the previously described thumbnail method, at the starting end of the rule, it is found that scale 4 is equal to 2 5/8" and scale 8 is equal to 2 7/8".  If  the brick to be used averages 2 1/2", scale 4 would allow 1/8" joint and scale 8 a 3/8" joint.  The more satisfactory of these two size joint thickness can be selected for the job.  The brick industry is using more oversize brick (also referred to as "queen" or "king size" brick).  The estimates are about 40% of the brick sold is oversize.  These bricks have a height of 2 3/4" vs. 2 1/4" for the standard or modular brick.  Due to the number of requests from brick masons, we now offer the new #656 brick mason wood rule.  The #656 rule has brick spacings at 2 7/8ths and go to 3 1/2" in 1/16" increments.  The brick spacings will be identified by black letters A through K.  Letters are used to prevent confusion with spacings shown on #636.  The #656 rule is printed yellow compared to white for the #636.


Lufkin® Red End® Modular Spacing Ruler #646
* All sections have square ends.
* Every joint opens on even number.
* Inside marked with 6 scales in a 16" module.  The scales are as follows:  2 courses in 16" space (for concrete blocks and glass blocks); 3 courses in 16" space (for facing tile); 4 courses in 16" space ( for small facing tile and economy brick); 5 courses in 16" space (for engineered brick); 6 courses in 16" space ( for Roman brick).  Scales include mortar space and spacing for 6" and 12" blocks.
* Outside is graduated on both edges to 1/16th.
* The first end section is a short section which permits butting the rule on the first 16" module.
