I flipped the bracket upside down placing the rod at the bottom of brick the arc had very little or no vertical offset error. I think If the rod is placed in the middle of brick vertically it may still introduce a unacceptable error........just my opinion. The small width of the brick bracket horizontally allows movement of the IT in both horizontal directions with very little disturbance of the brick, caused by any horizontal offset error cause by brick bracket width…………..hope this helps……..my perception of this comment is even confusing to me but playing with my IT tells me different……………..I never believed mom about the blindness……LOL

PS set the brick with rod in the center of brick horizontally
Have to say I am jealous as your tool is 2" longer than mine.

Here is a pic of my IT, any thoughts?

Your joints shouldn't have cracks in the mortar like that after the brick is placed. I suspect maybe the brick was bumped after it set separating it from it's neighbor. Once the bond is broken, you really need to reset the brick.

One tip that helped me was getting a jointing tool to go over the joints once they'd set a bit. Seemed to help strengthen the bond.

I think Dave and Brickie would remind us it"s not the tool, but the skill of the craftsman. Bruce
