The modern tools include diamond disc grinders, pneumatic hammers and tungsten tipped chisels. These tools make stone masons' jobs easier and quicker but traditional tools are still used for certain tasks.

In recent times it has become necessary for stone masons to look after their health and safety. Dust extractors are used in workshops and air hoods are used when working.
