With all the different kinds of jobs out there, there is a need for various types of blades. One of these happens to be tuck point blades. But what are tuck point blades? How do they work? It may be difficult to understand these blades if you’re not in the right industry or if you’re new to your field. So let’s go over tuck point blades, how they work, and how you can find yours at Cost Cutting Blades.
So, what exactly is the purpose of tuck point blades? These particular blades are used in concrete and masonry work. But they’re especially used with brick—but not to cut through the brick. You see, sometimes the mortar between bricks needs removal or touch-ups in order to ensure the structure or appearance of the wall. So these fine blades delicately remove some mortar from the bricks without having to remove them, and workers can replace the mortar with a fresh batch.
To some, tuck pointing may not seem like it’s necessary. However, it’s essential to the upkeep of the building. Of course, there’s the aesthetic part of it. Everyone likes a clean brick wall with beautiful pale mortar. However, this mortar does more than just offer aesthetics. When the mortar on bricks is damaged, this leaves the building open to any intruders—may they be bugs, water, or other types of debris. All of which could continue to damage the home, costing more in damages and effort. But with these fine blades, workers can remove the damaged mortar and prevent further damage from continuing.
At Cost Cutting Blades, we want you to have a variety of products to choose from. And because we know all of our clients don’t have the same needs, we currently have three different blades to choose from in a number of sizes.
Additionally, we also have a tuck point pin available. While not a blade, these pins are designed for cleaning and removing cement mortar between the joints of masonry walls. Now you can have pinpoint precision with your own tuck point pin. Say that five times fast!
