Useful tool for cleaning out old mortar
Useful tool for cleaning out old mortar before pointing. On larger jobs an angle grinder would be needed especially for harder sections. Best used on a drill with extra side grip handle to prevent the tool drifting and damaging brick faces. Decent quality even so it’s still subject to wear especially on harder mortar where a grinder is better.
Works better than anticipated
Ideal for the smaller pointing repair jobs and just the right size for getting into the mortar between your bricks. Cuts great into the old mortar with minimal effort. The real beauty with using one of these is not only the cost, but that you can use it on a typical household cordless drill. Ideal if you need to work up a ladder. Most importantly though, you're in full control of the speed. If you're raking/cutting out old soft mortar you really don't need an angle grinder whizzing around at high speed close to your face!
Very handy for tidying up repointing prep work
I bought this to tidy up some brickwork. Some clown had used concrete to repoint some of the exterior walls of my home, so it had to be ground out with an angle grinder. The old pointing had been painted black and a some of the paint remained, I ued the rake drillbit to just run along and clean up what the grinder had left behind. Result - a niely preped wall. as other reviewers have pointed out, this would take a long time to grind out long runs of martar but it does a great job of removing remaining old mortar after a preliminary raking ou has been done..

Excellent tool, well designed and works well.
Have used this to rake mortar for flashing for a porch canopy. Glad I bought it as it worked brilliantly. Used with my Bosch grinder, fitting was no problem. The mortar I removed was fairly sandy, and not too much of a challenge, but this really did go like a hot knife through butter. My workshop vacuum with a dust collector meant that almost no dust was dropped too. As others have said, gravity makes the vacuum attachment align correctly as you go. The notches it has to align with the mortar also work just fine. I bought the 8mm for my mortar as it wasn't very even, in some places about 8mm, generally nearer 10 and sometimes 12+. This could be used to clear it all without issue and it didn't touch the bricks themselves. Depth setting was easy, I used it at 18 and then 23mm depth. Note this was a warehouse deal in my case so the box is not new looking (but contents was 🙂
Great time-saver
We live in a Victorian house so there's always some repoiting to do...I have done it before with just a hammer and chisel but this has saved me so much time, I wish I invested sooner. Cuts through old, crumbly mortar very easily and where I find a patch of newer, stronger pointing it still goes through but takes a bit longer. Also as the mortar joints are quite uneven in our house, you can can let it trim the edges of the brick a little to create more consistent joints. Very happy with this product.
Well made
Dust extraction worked OK 'ish but the vac kept blocking up after a few minutes. Not the tool's fault I hear you say but read on... I was using an industrial vac, but I stopped using it in the end as I got fed up with continually cleaning the filter. The tool worked just as well without dust extraction and didn't seem to be much more dusty so made me think that the dust extraction wasn't great in the first place (even though my vac kept blocking. Good tool though, made light work of a victorian black mortar, but beware, victorian brick mortars are no-where near consistant and some gaps are less than the 8mm rake. I had to do those joints manually> Also it wasn't so great on the joints that had been done wioth cement based mortar (patched up). Not sure what the mix was that had been used but I'm betting it was stronger than 5:1 Overall, tool saved me a LOT of time and was good but not perfect for my particular job.
