Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I bought this after reading the good reviews and i was not disappointed. Removing grout from a shower was much easier than using a grout rake. Saves time and effort. Very pleased overall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless, completely useless... Thought I'd give this tool a go as some reviewers said it was good... really ?... It will probably cope with grout that's been under water for 50 years but anything harder than that forget it. It's not ergonomic to hold and vibrates enough to give you RSI in 5 minutes. After a few minutes I gave up and decided a ceramic blade in my Fein saw would work far better... it did... I returned the grout remover to Screwfix who were good as gold and refunded the item - top marks to them. If you're thinking of removing grout don't bother with this item you'll just end up taking it back for a refund !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable tool for job I bought this to change the colour of a grey grout to a lighter grey. It was good quality grout (Mapei). I had to return the product as the drill bit did not fit far enough into the receiver to be anchored by the hexagonal screw. Screwfix replaced but the problem was poor quality manufacture. Having started the job it worked but I found a combination of using this and a rake to be the fastest way to remove the grout. Still took over 2 hours to do about 2 square metres. I don't think the tool will do much more as the drill bits are blunt and I am unaware that there are replacement parts. Next time I might just re-tile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy piece of kit. Saves the mundane repetitive job of scraping grout. Accurately cleans grout lines and it would also be difficult to damage any of the tiles.

Answer: 
There are 2 tips with the tool, one has an end a little smaller than a terminal screwdriver, the other has a coned style end, so both should be able to do your job. My issue is replacement tips... where can I get them from? The only place I've seen supplies 2 replacement ends (same as supplied new) for almost the same price as buying a new tool! This is something to bear in mind if Screwfix and others aren't prepared to stock replacement tips, as they wear out quickly
