Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Job Bought this to do the pointing on the side of the house. Found it very easy to use, fantastic peace of tool. Not sure why it's got negative reviews. Few points to remember, use soft sand or building sand, add pastercizer to mixture, have the mix a bit soft and lastly load the mix from the front. Very important to clean the tool properly if you want to use it again. For pointing I'll say this tool is a must.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for some tasks A useful addition to keep around. The gun is well built. Because of the lightweight construction it will not take any mortar made up with sharp sand, only soft builders sand, which limits its versatility. However, if you only need to point with soft sand, it is great. I've only used it for a few days so far and worked fine, so reliability has not really been tested.

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.

deeper holes in breeze blocks

hi, I have some deep holes in breeze blocks, celcon. Will this tool be ok, and what nozzle should I use? Thanks.
Asked by: panos
Good morning -panos, Not sure how the holes look like in your celcon breeze blocks. You could try this model and using orange nozzles (white long nozzles are for grouting) or our Ultimate Mortar Gun (SKU 1983T) as the nozzles are slimmer and longer, so this model might be more of what you are looking for.
