I want to buy something that will remove a thick line of tile grout behind
my kitchen sink. What kind of electric type saw/remover do I need to do it
quickly and easily? I don't want to spend a lot of money on it because it
won't be used often, and I don't want to use one of those little hand tools
with the teeth. Thanks.
Are your plans to regrout? Manually scraping out a small area of
grout is really not that bad.
I am. It's not just behind the sink, it's about 4 feet long due to THE GROUT
DOCTOR S.O.B doing such a lousy job that the seam is really wide and ugly,
he just put new grout over the old grout and totally uneven at that. It's
nasty looking and I just had new trim tile put around the sink, so it's got
to go because it looks twice as bad now.
I assume that the grout is a joint between tiles. With care, you can
probably scratch out enough of the old grout to make a bed for
replacement grout. Use the saw or a utility knife. Just be sure to
bleach and clean it well, apply sealer after new grout is hard (usually
2-3 days, per package directions).

Someone gave me an old inkject printer and it spilled ink on my
bathroom floor and the grout. I used s screwdriver to scrape out the
grout but kept having to go deeper, and eventually made a wweapon as
lethal as any Rambo has used. Fortunately I have plenty of
screwdrivers, so now I call this something else.
Don't know about this guy, but I guess if I'd known how deep the red
ink went, I could have used the special hand tool with the offset
handle for removing grout. Isn't it hardeneed or something?
