Mortar Joint Raker
Great product used correctly
PLEASE NOTE -
This product is not for raking out old mortar!!!
After you build your wall you will then use this product to rake out the mortar to form a style of pointing called ''recessed pointing''.
Great product used correctly.

bought this chariot to do recessed pointing with and was excellent for the job lightweight but sturdy and at roughly 8 quid was a bargain

Works fine on old lime mortar
Whilst I wouldn't want to use this to rake out modern cement mortar (I think it would be very hard work) I have found it fine for use on old, soft lime mortar, which is what I bought it for,
If you're not sure (and I was considering getting an angle grinder) try raking a bit of your mortar with an old nail or similar. If it crumbles easily then this is going to work just fine and wont risk damage to your bricks.

This didn't work on lime mortar and was a pointless buy.
