Roughneck Brick Mortar Gun
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.

Rubbish - do noy buy
I bought this Mortar gun and it is useless. If I had the box and it wasn't so messy I would retrun right now! It's only so messy because of it's useless design.
I have tried using so many different mixes of mortor i've lost count, I've tried outless plastisors and different sands and everythime the mortar goes solid after a few pumps.
Total waste of money.

Does the job and very well if you get the mix right.
some hassle, in which you have to continually clean the nosle after refilling the tube, otherwise it doesn't take long for the mixture to sand down the tread and becoming useless.
