Point faster and make more money in 2018!

Print Email

 

 

Point when you can!

Winter is still here: so when you can you need to point as quickly as possible to take advantage of the opportunities there  are. 

With the Pnu-Point pointing and grouting tool you can get those pointing jobs done  in a fraction of the time and make more money.

With the weather we have  up here in Durham: rain; frost, rain, rain! making up for lost time is even more essential. The Pnu-Point enables you to do this by filling joints deeper and at least five time faster and  than by hand.

 

The tool might seem expensive , but customers tell us that they get their money back in the first day or two of use.

 

 

The Pnu-Point Tool enables you to point faster and cleaner. The Pnu-Point pushes the mortar to the back of the joint, so completely filling it. The tool is clean to use and easy to clean after use: just wash out with water.

 

Customers tell us that they can point 50 square metres per day with the Pnu-Point. By hand they struggled to manage 10 square metres per day!

 

 


Feed back from customers:

  • before they purchased the Pnu-Point they were tired of shoving mortar into joints, had aching wrists from using hand powered glorified mastic guns, or were fed up with repairing and unblocking auger type pointing tools.
  • the tool is quick and easy to to use, good with any mortar, cement or lime (except lime putty). Works wonderfully with bagged ready mixed mortars, but do not need to buy them as it works just as well with local sands.
  • the Pnu-Point fills joints from the back of the joint, does not bleed onto the face of the work and wastes very little mortar.
  • lime (hydraulic ) mortars, cement mortars with local sand all work well with the Pnu-Point. They do not have to purchase expensive bagged mortars.
  • the Pnu-Point pays for itself in the first day or two of use.

You might have read the reviews on U-TUBE: some of of them are adverse but if you look at the writers you will see that they are voicing opinions without having used the Pnu-Point tool: just look at some of the quality work carried out by our customers.

We have customers across the world: USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Slovenia, Canary Islands, Spain, Poland, Finland and of course nearer to home: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Channel Isles and England.

Comments from US and Canada

Comments from one of our first US customers. Jesse in Kansas

"A few shots of the house now that I have had it for over a month, and a couple of shots of the work i did this week in the basement. still several walls to go down there, to demo and point, but I was thrilled with the first run, and with the performance of the gun. I showed the gun to my mason, and he loved it. Will be in touch."

This was his second email:

Peter.

My body is quite tired from the work we pulled off the past two days. I was able to refine my moves alot the second day after the experimental day. I think we did about 150 square feet of stone with two guys. 11 bags of mortar total. i'm happy with the type S mortar downstairs. the stone is not soft, it is bedrock. Once I perfect my finishing moves with the brush and tools, I will be ready to start outside in the early spring, weather permitting.

The tool worked perfectly, and had zero clogs. the burping problem, where the last bit of air chokes thru the nozzle and spits the mortar, i worked thru that. I felt that the control of the trigger, how sensitive it is, was very nice, and allowed me to establish a relative plane for the finished face in the fill stage.

I was able to mix two 80 lb. bags of mortar at a time, and use it all very quickly with the gun.

Will take a few shots of the work and show it to you soon.

I actually think that a second gun will be warranted for the exterior project. I found that stopping to refill was not that great, so if i had a second gun, i could just give one of my guys the task of filling, and he could just hand me a continually full gun.

Having fun, and enjoying the tool.

Jesse.

 

Hey Peter,

Thanks for the email. Yes I have been using your tool almost steady for the last six weeks.Works amazing like you said with no real problems.I love the fact that I can modify the tips to fit a flexible hose etc.We were working on an old barn restoration whereas the mortar joints were 1- 1 1/2" wide and little mortar remaining behind some stone. I was able to shoot mortar into these joints and behind the stones which would have been impossible to do my hand; very impressed.

Peter,
 
I have used the Pnu-Point gun today and it works better than what I thought it would do. The weight of the gun is lighter and balanced better than the quik point. We had a race with the two and you know which gun won "pnu point". I had to make the mortar stiffer because it comes out easier than the quik point gun, that gun needs loose wet mortar. I have one question, air comes out of the valve on the lid when I am holding the trigger down. Is this normal???
I am very!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! happy with the pnu-point gun.
Thank you,
Jon

( in answer to Jon's question: yes air does come out of the lid valve at all times: it is essential for the operation of the tool: Peter at Pnu-Point)

hi peter. tool worked really well. proper consistency of mortar very important as well as the pressure. i wonder if more pressure with larger relief valve would allow a stiffer mix of mortar to pass . feel free to pass my email address to potential buyers for imput . all positive from my side. twig

(In answer to Twigs question: if you increase the pressure over 2 bar (32psi)there is danger of the water being pushed out of the mortar mix: segregation. This makes the mortar stiffer so it stops flowing. Don't do it. Peter at Pnu-Point)

Tyne Valley Steading Renovation and Conversion

 

The village of Longstones is prettily situated on the south face of the Tyne valley a few miles from Hexham. The proximity to the history of Hadrian's Wall, the shops and resturants of Hexham and the wonderful wild countryside of Northumberland make it an ideal situation for holiday lets. A farm steading at Longstone is currently undergoing extensive conversion to a group of high quality appartments and houses. The work is being carried out by M Maughan Joinery (07803603968).

 

The work involves significant modification to the barns and steadings. New doors and windows, blocking up of existing openings, additional walls, all to be carried out under the planning requirements of a building within a National Park!

To achieve this the company carried out the building work and then repointed the entire group of buildings. New stone work joints were raked our together with the existing structure, the buildings were sandblasted and then repointed using Pnu-Point pointing tools.

They adopted a "blietzkrieg" method of pointing: choose a good day and go for it! Using a team of five men, two pointing with the Pnu-Points, two striking the joints and the last guy looking after the mortar they pointed around 150 m2 in a day. Using this technique all the stone work looks the same, new and old stone is indistinguishable.

Don't just take our word for it - watch and see for yourself how easy and quick this tool can transform pointing for you.

 

If you would like to watch the video on your TV: email, phone or write to us for a free DVD.

 

The Pnu-Point in the video is an old Mark 1 Pnu-Point: the current Mark 2 has a heavier , more robust body, improved air relief valve and nylon, injection moulded nozzles with stainless steel inserts.
