Great gun. My first package contained a bent tube/cylinder but was replaced by the vendor. I'm using it with type S mason mix to patch an old railroad retaining wall.
Never used one before. Once you figure out the cement consistency and the technique for application, this thing is great. Highly recommended.
Works as described easy to clean
I bought this product elsewhere but it's the exact same thing. We had to add grout to a rock wall that had been badly grouted. If we had tried to do it by hand it would have taken forever,and made a huge mess. This was a lifesaver. I'm sure it saved us hours of work. It is a little tricky because you have to find the right consistency for your grout and add a surfactant (as had been suggested in another review.) We added about 2 teaspoons of dish soap to a 60 pound bag of mortar. Fill the tube from the nozzle side to keep the felt on the plunger clean. The different sizes of nozzle tips are a godsend. Tap the leftover grout from the nozzle back into your mixture every time your refill the tube, otherwise the tip can get compacted with sand. Making smaller mixes rather than the whole 60 pound mortar bag helps so that it doesn't dry out while you are working. I would recommend this to any homeowner/ DIY-er that has a small/medium project. It's easy to clean out, and ours still looks good if we ever have to do it again.
It's exactly what I needed and the improved speed of pointing!
I bought it for grout work. I've only used it once, but it works great. No more grout float, it works just like a caulking gun. Easy to fill, and clean.
Really made filling large cracks easy
This tool showed up and it was nothing less than a miracle. It was clean, easy and quick to lay down exactly the amount of grout we needed for our project. Loading and clean up was a breeze. Why didn't we buy this a long time ago? You need this, I promise.
