Thinset Removal Tool is for removing WET thinset mortar from grout gaps and is used soon after tiles are mounted to a surface but not yet grouted. It is not used for removing fully hardened thinset. This tool is molded from durable polymer for long life and has gap-scraping studs for gaps of sizes 1/16 inch, 1/8 inch, 3/16 inch, and 1/4 inch.
This tool is used for removing fresh thinset from grout gaps in grids of large architectural tiles mounted using tile spacers, where the tool is quickly pulled through every row and column.
This tool is very useful for setting or periodically checking the width of grout gaps, which are often underestimated by novices.
