Pointmaster demonstration videos.
Welcome to our video links page. Please watch our general demonstration. Further down the page there are links to other videos we've made demonstrating the Point Master in specific applications, such as brickwork or paving.
We have compiled this list of videos, so that it is simpler for you to find a specific video for the application you are looking for.
Here the PointMaster is shown being used in different situations, with various mortar mixes including cement mortar, hydraulic lime mortar and bagged floor tile grout.
Point Master's adjustable nozzle means your mortar is injected directly into the back of the joint and fills completely, with little mess or waste. The simple mechanism and removable plunger makes refilling easy.
It demonstrates both the speed and accuracy of the Point Master.
7x 35cm Paving joints filled in 25 seconds
This video is in two parts: The first part demonstrates the Point Master completely filling 7x 35cm regular sided paving slab joints in just 25 seconds and with only one fill.
The second part we add sharp sand and small stones into the mix, then re-mix, then reload the tool and continue pointing the same slabs, proving that small stones really won't block the nozzle.
Patios & paving slabs
Here we show the speed and accuracy of the Point Master tool when pointing even sided paving joints.
We demonstrate here, using a continuous sliding technique, pressing the plunger as you move along the joint. Pointing takes minutes instead of hours.
Here we are using a good quality, bagged, ready mixed mortar.
Brickwork & walls
The Point Master tool pointing the brickwork of a wall built of recycled bricks.
You can see how the application of mortar is fast and very precise, with negligable surface staining, which is vital in delivering a professional result.
Joint style should match the surrounding brickwork. If the joints are slightly over-filled, it is possible to weather-strike if required.
Stonework & deep joints
Pointing and finishing a modern flint wall using cement mortar. Point Master makes this highly difficult task very simple: The most common traditional technique is to throw the cement into the wall from a trowel or hawk.
Note: Cement mortar is used because the wall is a modern reproduction. Heritage repairs should be carried out using traditional materials.
Always match the original materials as closely as possible.
Brick slips & brick tiles
PointMaster infills a half metre² brick tile panel, built to demonstrate the tool at trade shows. You can see how quick and easy the tool is to re-load once empty. It takes just seconds!
Note: Always shake out the residual plug left inside the chamber and stir the mix to revive before loading.
The mortar is a hand mixed, regular 3:1 cement mortar mix using soft building sand, with a measure of plasticiser added (following the manufacturer's measures).
Barrow mixing regular cement mortar
We make a regular 4:1 cement mortar mix by hand mixing in a wheel-barrow. This mix would be ideal for use in the Point Master, or for other requirements and traditional methods.
The mix is bulked using a good quality liquid plasticiser. We also add liquid weatherproofer to the mix
Point Master is compatible with most types of sand, as well as additives, colourants and pigments made for regular mortar.
