The Gage System™, a patented method of constructing a brick or block wall, features a mortar delivery device and a block alignment panel. The auger-driven delivery system forces mortar through an attached hose to a delivery nozzle. The nozzle is connected to a pressurized tank housing the mixed mortar, and the delivery device deposits mortar along the edges of a brick. The nozzle has two outlets that can be spaced apart to approximate the distance between the edges of bricks or blocks.

Alignment panels, erected perpendicularly to the foundation, keep the wall plumb, straight, and level during the laying of each row of bricks. Utilizing a precise mortar dispenser, the Gage System enables a well-constructed and fortified wall to be built in a time-saving and efficient manner.
