Hand ratchet brace
This hand ratchet brace works on the same principle as the common brace but has a lever instead of a U-shaped bracket. This lever works according to a ratchet mechanism and can be moved with back and forth strokes. Where there is no room for the normal brace, this type can be used. See also the engineer's ratchet brace for metal. [MOT]

Stone-dressing axe
Axe-shaped tool with one, usually two axe-shaped, straight cutting edges that are in the same plane as the handle (approx. 40-60 cm), for working natural stone. The cutting edge has an angle between 10 ° - for working soft stone types - and 40 ° for hard stone types. The stonemason uses this dressing axe mainly to remove the excess material from soft stones. It is also used to flatten natural stone after it has been roughly worked with the stone-dressing pick or the pointed chisel, as well as in finishing to give the stone a ribbed appearance (see also charring chisel).
