Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadfu! Avoid! Complete waste of money this. Broke within 1 min of first use. handle snapped rendering the whole thing useless! I purchased it to get concrete in-between pathing slabs. Used quality concrete mixed with ultra fine 'play' sand. very wet mix. Simply not fit for purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sandstone Pointing I was dubious about this but thought I would try it. Great job. Neater than a trowel therefore less staining of the sandstone. I couldn't get "soft" building sand so used the fine, kiln dried sand used for brushing into block paving. 3-1 mix, loads of plastisiser and no problems. The mix needs to be right, fairly wet but obviously not so wet it pours out the nozzle. Important to keep it clean so flush with water if using for more than a couple of fills. The scoop is wider than the tube so is messy, I made a funnel from a fruit juice bottle. In fact, if the mix goes through this with just a tap it's right. If it goes straight through its too wet and if you have to tap too often it's too dry. You'll soon get it right. I smeared a bit of silicone grease on the threads at both ends, seems to help prevent them sticking with mortar splashes. Keep it clean in use and wash thoroughly, you'll have no problems. It's also important to watch it filling the joint, again you get to know how much is right because you see it "oozing" it's way along the joint. I have about 30m done. 20 more to go.... Get one, they're a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mortar Gun Works really well. You need to use building sand rather than sharp sand and the mix needs to be wet enough to be piped through. It pipes deep into joints really well and comes with various nozzles. The body spins at the top so that all angles can be got to. Make sure you clean it well at the end of the session so it's ready for next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time saver Great time saving tool. A lot faster way of pointing than using a pointing trowel. Easy to use and easy to clean. Once you get the right consistency for the mortar, it's a doddle!

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.

Can this be used with pre made mortar repair mix ?

Asked by: Geofffyboy
Good morning, We are aware that there are ready mixes of mortar available on the market. These have not been tested by us and we learnt from talking to customers that they don’t seem to be creating the correct mixture, we suspect that this is due to plasticizer missing from the mixture. We accompany mortar guns enquiries with following guidelines on mortar mixture; we hope that you’ll find it useful, too: Firstly, it is important that you only use the orange nozzles (model 32-100) or black nozzles (model 32-150) for mortar mix and not the white grouting nozzle, which is for tiling grout only. Building sand is not always the correct material to use, as this description does not always suggest you are getting 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 and plasticizer used to bind the mix together to ensure a smooth, creamy texture. Please note that sharp building sand must be never used. Good luck!
