Fabulous tool for removing grout without chipping tiles
on 18 June 2015
We recently had a really badly done grout job on lovely new tiles. The grout all needed removing and re-doing. Nightmare! I ordered a Dremel machine and 2 grout bits; this one (1.6mm) and the 3.2mm one. I had great success with this DREMEL 1.6mm bit, which cut like butter into the grout, and with a gentle side movement I could edge right along the border of each tile without actually touching the tiles and grind out every bit of grout down to a level of about 3mm, which was sufficient to re-grout successfully. HOWEVER, on my first attempt I tried the larger Dremel 3.2mm grout removal bit and it was just too big. Even with my nerves of steel, a steady hand and good eye site, within minutes the 3.2mm nicked the edge of one of my new tiles, which cracked the tile and snapped the Dremel 3.2mm bit. So the bottom line is, the Dremel grout removal bit worked fabulously, and this 1.6mm bit is the one I'd recommend.
