Advice on bringing my field skills up to date?
#10
Watch out with the molas guide fig. 30 where it indicates a pointing profile as tuck. It's more likely called beak or double struck which is proud. Can't say that I have seen any like it. Tuck pointing is a whole different gamet of pointing where brickies tried to mimick artisan rubbed and guaged brickwork joints by first filling the joint with brick coloured Mortar and then scored a grove into which they tucked a lighter coloured mortar (which then probably had to be trimmed) to give the impression of the thin joints that georgen brick makers/layers most notably laid on the facade but sometime all around buildings using bricks which might have been guaged or rubbed (both?). Some joints are around 2 to 3 mm and on arches and lintels almost imperceptible. It's only recently that some thin joint techniques have been brought back using light weight blocks but most brickies would run a mile if you suggested that they could lay anything less than around 10mm. Another problem with the term tuck pointing is that the Americans tend to use the term for repointing.

Kinda a bit of a big knowledge gap in the buildings recording of molas circa 1994?
