Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time Tried it with my own mortar mix plus plasticiser as per instructions and the mortar would not squeeze out. I should have taken it back for a refund but instead chucked it in the back of my shed. Tried it again with Screwfix Cementone tub of ready mixed mortar and some plasticiser. It was quite a sloppy mix and all it did after a few blobs came out was squeeze the water out of the mortar. Complete waste of time for pointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the job Works really well if used with correct mix. Make sure you use building sand (not plaster sand!). Also use a plastersiser. Makes a fiddly job straightforward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mortar gun Good tool, speeds up the pointing loads Had trouble to begin with unscrewing the bottom to fit the nozzle in and had to get some grips on it. Rubbing round the threads with a bit of grease or washing up liquid may help As others say the mix has to be right to flow well Only change would be to have the nozzle angled back slightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for pointing but….. This is an excellent tool for pointing, used in my case for patio and pathway. I was worried about reliability having read some reviews, and on my second mix the Roughneck started to not dispense. I tried wetter mix and drier mix and changed some of the fitting, but it refused to dispense. Then I randomly tried a little more plastisizer and voila!! Worked a treat!! So my advice is get the mix right and add the right amount of plastisizer! I used 75ml per bucket of water. Highly recommended!

How much plasticiser and how much water do you need

It states the mortar mix should be: 1 (3-4 parts) soft building sand 2 (1 part) cement 3 (small amount) plasticizer 4 water But how much plasticiser and how much water do you need for this mix?
Asked by: RAL9

What is the diameter of the tube?

Asked by: bratpack

What size mortar gap?

Can this be used for 7mm (or 5mm) grout lines with a soft sand / lime / cement mix for a granite slab patio? What if the mix is sharp sand / lime / cement? Any advice or comments would be very welcome. Thanks
Asked by: Windsurfingroger
Good afternoon Windsurfingroger, Thank you for your question. Our Mortar Gun sets include various nozzles, the Grouting Nozzle (the long white one) can be cut with a knife to achieve the desired hole diameter, either straight or angled. We encourage anyone using the Roughneck Mortar Gun to use the following mixture ingredients and ratios: You must use Soft Building Sand. The best way to test that you are using the correct sand is to rub the palm of your hand with the sand, if it stains your palm orange then you have soft building sand. This should ideally be mixed 3-4 parts sand to 1 part cement, keep adding enough water and plasticizer (in your case Lime) to bind the mix together to ensure a smooth, creamy texture. Using this mixture will ensure the Roughneck Mortar Gun will work to its full capability. Good luck!

Pointing flags

When useing this to fill and point flags do you still need to compact it in and use a bent pipe for smooth looking finish
Asked by: Master7of9
Good afternoon — Master7of9, Thank you for your question. This mortar gun is designed to make the job such as yours easier by using the pressure of trigger mechanism to pump the mortar mixture into the gaps and under slabs. Various nozzles will also ensure that no mortar is spilled around, making your filling neater. You should not need a bent pipe for smoothing the finish. Remember to use soft building sand, cement and plasticizer (3-4:1:1) and water, to achieve creamy mayo-like texture. Trust this helps.

Type of sand to use.

Great product, did all my work well, but when a mate borrowed it on my recommendation, it failed to perform. Both using "building sand" the performance is down to the right grade of sand I believe. So what is that I wonder?
Asked by: Springer2
Dear -Springer2, Thank you for your question - the answer is soft building sand. There are various ready-made mixes on the market, however we have not tested them but they appear not to be suitable to use with the mortar gun. The sand used in the ready mix is too coarse, causing the mixture to be to thick and clogging up the gun or if more water is added, it then flows from the ratcheting mechanism part and clogs the gun at the front, as the sand thickens. We recommend using following ingredients to achieve creamy, mayo-like consistency: 1 (3-4 parts) soft building sand - the best way to test it is to rub it against your fingers, which should stain your fingers orange 2 (1 part) cement 3 (small amount) plasticizer - lime, washing up liquid or ready made available in the bottle 4 water If you combine those ingredients, you won't go wrong. Good luck.
