" Thought this would be a good idea for my pointing project.
I was a little bit worried when I read the review referring to squeezing the water out.
Fortunately, with a bit of change to my mix with less water and slightly more plasticiser it worked a treat.
Be sure to keep it clean and watch out for little stones as they may block the tip.

This Gun Gets The Job Done
15 May 2016
By
, North West
" Demolished part of external chimney breast on the outside of our detached bungalow. Having capped it off and cleaned out the the old crumbling mortar I used this gun to replace the mortar. I used a ready mixed blue cirlcle cement QA. With added plasticiser which really helped to make the mortar flow. Washed out the gun on every refill and even put some plasticiser in the gun and swilled it round to aid the flow of the mortar. Made sure the mortar was like cream, the wall and joints where moist and the job was done in no time. Finished off the joints with end of an hose pipe and I'm really delighted with the result. Pleased with this product and would recommend it to save time and provide a really professional finish. Very little waste and delighted with the result. "

Great bit of kit
26 Feb 2016
By
, Leicestershire
" What a great bit of kit. I was a bit wary of the poor reviews by some people but went ahead and bought one. Just replaced three bricks in a vaulted ceiling, which I could not have done without one of these. Also did some pointed on a stone wall. Both jobs without a bit of trouble. Its not rocket science to get the mix right, with some plasticiser.
If you have trouble with one of these, look no further than the operator, ...............a poor workman always blames his tools !!!!

" This tool was very Easy to set up and use, it is important to get the correct mix weather your using it for mortar or re-grouting as I was, it was very easy to clean after use quality tool which saved me a lot of time and hardly any mess to clean of the tiles unlike usual grouting I would recommend this tool.

Does The Job
18 Nov 2015
By
, London
" First job using the Roughneck Mortar Gun was a particularly tricky exterior crack caused by WW2 bomb damage!
This tool just the job for pushing in the mortar mix deep into the fissure plus the wastage kept to a minimum. As mentioned on every other review the yellow trowel wasn't really suitable for loading the gun so we used a rubble sack with a corner cut off to 'pipe' in the mix. Mary Berry would have been proud!
Really good product this and a very reasonable price! One for the tool bag definitely! "

Pointing Gun filling tip
15 Oct 2015
By
, Stratford upon Avon
" Just bought one for a large gable end wall, what a blessing. Followed the advice on here and you can't go far wrong, so thanks to all the posters.
My tip would be chuck the scoop everybody complains about and find one of those old almost empty silicon sealer or mastick tubes we have all saved for the next job. One with about an inch of the contents left and it has all gone hard, now cut one side of the open end away in the same sort of shape as the scoop, if the old nozzle is still on it - makes a great handle. This DIY scoop fits down inside the tube and makes filling much easier.

" I've been a sceptic of these , thought I'd give one a go on a small paving job. Turned 1/2 day into a a couple of hours!!. As you'll read, load it from nozzle end, keep the mix like d/cream and keep a bucket of water next to the mix and rinse it every other fill or so. And don't bother with the little shovel, my kids have got more use out of it.
Just done 20m2 of Indian stone paving and its worked a treat.

" Great time saving tool. Mixture is the key and does need to be quite sloppy otherwise it will clog. Not exactly sure how final mortar strength is affected by wet mixture but on the plus side it allows you to get the mortar right into the brickwork which must be good for resulting overall build strengh. Filling tool is annoyingly to large but not a big problem. Would recommend this product if used correctly. "

" Worked well and got my job done efficiently, I did find that it was best not to scoop from the mixing bucket- I tipped the mortar into a small pile and then took small slithers into the scoop ensuring not to completely fill the scoop- it falls into the tube so much easier without getting it all around the screw threads.

Fantastic tool
12 May 2015
By
, Stockport
" Everyone knows that repointing is one of the most boring jobs on the planet but this tool makes the whole thing so much quicker.
It would score 5 stars across the board but I only gave it 4 for features because as another reviewer said the scoop you use to get the mortar into the gun is too wide for the neck of the gun. This means you have mortar running down the sides of the tube - until you 'adjust' the width of the scoop with a few taps of a hammer that is !
Otherwise it's a brilliant time saving tool.

Fantastic piece of kit
9 Apr 2015
By
, Newcastle
" Managed to point a 6 metre long, 1.7 metre high wall in about 3 hours with this.
The nozzle is the perfect size for a good mortar joint, and if you are capable of creating decent mortar (I used 3:1 sand/cement with a glug of plasticiser and water) then it works beautifully.
Easy to clean - mortar doesn't stick to it and washes off easily.
The only thing I could possibly complain about, which in no way actually affects it, is the scoop for the mortar doesn't actually fit in the tube, but still easy to fill. "
