P C Cox Ultrapoint Pointing & Grouting Gun
I'm a joiner not a brickie, so when I was asked to do some re pointing as part of a joinery job I was a bit reluctant. Anyway I said yes and decided to buy one of these. It is brilliant, my pointing looks professional, and pretty quick again. So long as care is taken with the mix the gun is faultless.

Very good product for pointing
I picked on of these up today after taking back the cheaper roughneck gun due to it breaking. This gun is very industrial in build and feel and makes pointing fast and easy.
The only downside is some of the mortar backs up and it can be a little messy when refilling, but you soon get the hang of it. The secret is not having the mortar to firm or to runny. It takes a little practice to get the mixture just right but well worth it.

Why didn't I buy one years ago
I can't believe how fast I pointed a patio using the pointing gun. A job that I thought would take a couple of hours was finished in one. You need fairly runny mortar but the gun will ensure that the mortar really fills the joints.

It's all about the mix.
If you get the mix right this will save you hours of time and give a proffesional finish. I recomend using a paddle mixer. Have done about 10 sq mts so far and it shows no signs of wear. You must keep it clean.
