Grout Guns: experiences?


Anyone have good or bad experiences to report with grout guns? I'm thinking of using one with an epoxy grout on the shower-floor mosaics, to minimize cleanup issues.

Waste of time, and for mosaics?

Well, a little bigger than true mosaics. 2x2. I thought it might be neater to run a bead of the epoxy grout. The website of the company that sells the gun shows it filling what looks to be a 1/8" grout joint.

I use one that attaches to a drill. works great. Use it for tiles, stone work. Bought it originally for a job that needed 85,000 sq ft of brick. One of my union bricklayers wanted it. Used 4 of them. Cleans easily and less wasted materials and less cleanup.
