Pointing Tools & Repointing Tools for Mortar Raking and Brickwork

We provide dust-free methods of raking or grinding-out brick joints, refilling the joints with cement or lime mortars and compressing or profiling the joint, also referred to as ironing. The work will variously be referred to as Brick Pointing, Tuck Pointing or Repointing.

In the Brick Raking section, you will find brick raking or grinding-out guards for popular angle grinders. These can be bought on their own, or as part of a package. Our Brick Raking Toolbox includes the angle grinder fitted with the brick raking cowl and a diamond blade, associated service tools and essential personal protective equipment (PPE). Our Brick Raking Packages go one step further in adding a suitable Dust Extractor or Vacuum. Diamond Raking Blades are also available.

Under the Pointing and Finishing heading, you’ll find the Quikpoint Electric Repointing Gun for refilling brick or mortar joints. There is also the Pointmaster joint compression or ironing tool. For repointing or grouting large areas of paving, you’ll find the Quikpave Paving Jointer, essentially an upright version of the Quikpoint Mortar Gun.

It is recommended that mortar joints be 'raked' to a minimum depth equal to twice the height of the joint. It is also important to retain a constant raked depth. 6 mm (1/4") width blades are most commonly used for raking mortar joints; we also provide 8 mm and 10 mm blades.

For high intensity brick raking, we recommend the use of 125 mm (5") angle grinders as they are more powerful, have larger bearings and stronger gears, than the lower-cost mini-grinders. Coupled with a quality diamond blade, they should cut faster, be more productive and last longer.

Controlling dust when brick raking allows you to work more accurately, reduce clean-up costs for both person and property and minimise the health risks associated with silica dust products.
