Default Re: Arch Mortar Joint Question

I am with Brickie. You have the inner edges touching, so the mortar is essentially just chinking material. Unless it is physically disturbed, it ain't going anywhere.

Well, after consideration, I thought I would use a concrete drill bit to clear the wide mortar joints from the top enough to put a wedge of brick in the center third or so. Found out the ole homebrew is some tough stuff. I'm not proud of the final product, but I'm going to leave it alone and do a better job for the outer arch. I appreciate all of the input. I have read alot of posts from all of you guys. Tscar has taught me alot about cement, mortar, etc.
