About Quikpoint PLUS
- w
e have created the new PLUS configuration by the addition of a strengthened auger which has been hardened (heat-treated) to provide greater wear resistance. The hardened auger has been available as a replacement item for some time and is proven to last significantly longer than the original factory-fitted standard auger. 

About the Drill choices - the Makita 6510LVR is a low speed/high torque drill, using double-reduction gearing to deliver a maximum speed circa 1100 rev/min; rated power is 330 watt. The Hitachi D10VC2 is rated at 460 watt and has a top speed circa 2300 rev/min. Both drills are offered in 110 and 240 volt, have variable speed (trigger controlled) and a 'rotary control' to permit a set speed to be maintained with minimal effort.

Quikpoint Advantages - to maintain the integrity and weatherproofing of a structure, it is important that mortar joints are of sufficient depth, have no hidden voids and are adequately compressed and sealed. The Quikpoint Mortar Pointing Gun is a convenient and effective joint filling system, used by Masonry and Pointing Contractors yet suitable for less skilled operatives and competent DIYers. The Quikpoint Pointing Gun is consistently faster than trowel filling and more likely to achieve full joint penetration. It is physically less demanding than hand-held  pointing guns (also known as caulking or mastic guns) which rely on hand-generated pressure and hence are prone to causing Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI).

Quikpoint Electric Pointing Gun vs Handheld (Mastic) Pointing Gun

Handheld pointing guns are a popular alternative to repointing with a mortar hawk and trowel. They are relatively low cost, lightweight and require no power (other than a strong wrist). So, what’s better about the Quikpoint approach?

Capacity:

Quikpoint will hold more mortar than the typical mastic gun - typically 2L-3L - so fewer stops to refill.

Loading time:

A few seconds with the Quikpoint scoop vs unscrewing and withdrawing plunger, filling narrow tube, refitting plunger etc.

Mortars:

With Quikpoint, any self-mix - including lime mortars - or pre-mix mortars will work well.

Delivery:

Mastic guns are prone to mix separation and clogging, especially with self-mixes - not a problem with the auger-fed Quikpoint.

Penetration:

Quikpoint permits fast and consistent joint filling to realistic depths across a range of joint widths, with little effort.

Effort:

Quikpoint is significantly less physical than a mastic gun, hence more work for the same effort.

Bottom line:

Quikpoint quickly pays for itself in reduced time, effort and material costs.
