Masonry is something that has been known since a quite long time ago but is still used and applicable until now. In simple words, this can be explained as any construction with stone. Based on this simple definition, it can also be said that masonry is actually always related to construction and building but you have to know that the meaning of stone here is not always related to stone only. The basic material that can be used in masonry can also be various, including bricks, marbles, travertine, granites, limestone, concrete blocks, cast stones, glass blocks, tiles, and many others. Usually, in masonry construction the material will be bounded to one another by using something called as mortar
At this point of time, working on masonry construction can be done even easier because of the fact that there are more and more technologies that can make the construction finished easier and faster without reducing the quality of the construction. That is why it can really be said that masonry at this present time is really different from masonry in the past.
From a lot of tools and technologies that can be used in masonry right now, one example that is interesting enough is called as carbide bits. These are no other else but tools that can be used to make holes in stones, bricks, or blocks that are used in building masonry construction. If in the past the holes could only be made manually, this time the holes can be made with the help of this kind of tools which can in fact make holes so quickly. Right now, it is known that there are quite a lot of types of the bits that can be found. The most common examples are; rotary hammer bits, core bits, and also shank carbide hammer bits.
