071 - 6th chain mortared in place.
I ground away part of inner arch to allow 6th chain to be continuous.

076 - 8th chain mortared in place.
This is a good shot of the outer mortar joints compared to the almost mortar-less inner joints.
This is due to calculating the angle & bevel of each brick.

080 - 9th chain.
The angles started to get pretty steep.
This required some additional weight to hold the bricks in place until the mortar set.
I took some scrap 2x4's and ran a 3" screw into one end to use to temporarily hold each brick.
Here you can see the wood shims that are used to hold the brick in the proper position, determined by the IT, until the mortar sets.
