I went to a home show, and they were giving these away. It's a piece of
wood, L shaped, grooves in it. It is used to hold the line on the outside
corner of blocks at a corner to use a guide for the next course.
I have googled about every combination of blocklayer, string, blocklayer's
tools, blocklayer's hand tools, anchor, etc, etc, that I can think of, and
can't find one that shows me how to wind the string on there.
Help out an old fart here. I know it's gotta be so very simple, but right
now, it's got me baffled.
'Wood line block' is what I've called them. Sometimes the span is
short enough, the notch is thin enough and the string is coarse enough
to just pull em tight with friction. Other times I've done things
as inelegant as sitting a block on the loose end of the string.
