Irwin 10507268 10mm Mortar Rake Starter Kit by IRWIN

It made very little dust, and just sailed through the wall I was repointing. So unelss your mortar is very hard, I'd get the drill bit rather than this.

A nice idea, but literally stopped working within - I'd say - three minutes. Not worth the hassle of returning it. Maybe I was just unlucky, and if this worked for any length of time, it would be a good purchase.
