Stainless steel Hawk Tray Trowel with Wood Handle for Drywall and Plaster
A hawk is the number one must-have tool for any professional plasterer. The hawk is used to carry and hold the plaster as they move down the wall. It allows you to apply your plaster easily and rapidly across both ceilings and walls. A hawk does in fact generally have a stick stuck onto a plate design of construction. It gives you an easier means to control the tool. All hawks I have seen had a metal plate with a wooden or plastic handle attached to it.
QUALITY MATERIAL - The drywall hawk is made of premium aluminium sheet, which is rustproof, lightweight, and has a smooth surface. Its handle uses wood plastic, which is wear-resistant, durable, and non-slip.
HUMANIZED DESIGN - The aluminium plastering hawk is equipped with a soft handle, which provides a comfortable grip and can reduce hand fatigue.
PRACTICAL TOOL - The mortar board holder is ideal for applying plaster, cement, or other bonding materials to walls. The ring patterns on the board help keep these compounds from slipping off. The hawk is a reliable tool for builders and renovation workers.
EASY TO MOUNT - Follow the three simple steps to complete the installation. Insert the handle into the round base. Put the handle on the side without ring patterns.

Q: What is the function of mortar in brick walls?
A: Mortar joints play a critical role in the structural integrity of a brick wall. They hold the bricks together, bear the compressive weight of the wall, and keep out water. The mortar is also the weak link in the brick wall system and is designed to deteriorate faster than the brick itself.
Q: How do you mix mortar to make it look better?
A: Mix a small amount of mortar with clean water, as directed by the mortar manufacturer, using a bucket and masonry trowel. If desired, add a liquid latex binder to improve adhesion and reduce cracking and shrinking. Also add a cement dye, if you’re using one to match an existing mortar color.
