From the Blog
It has always been said, use the right tool for the job. And from time to time, we are so pleased to be able to do exactly that- offer our drystone walling community a new tool that should find a home in the waller toolbox. We’ve just added a rugged new Hand Set that will earn its keep when fabricating features, copes, or just trying to wall tightly.
Last time I stated that “Inevitably a wall has faults, being a better waller involves reducing these faults, and not compounding those that are made…” a philosophy I shall now add to…When building a wall you are presented with a series of problems to solve.
