Grout removal: what do I do with a 1/16" grout line?


Does the Fein multimaster have a blade that would work with a 1/16"? Grout line? What other tools or methods might you suggest? I'm trying to remove excess thinset around 12" marble tiles.

There is a small router bit available for Dremel tools that works. Very fragile bit, but if you are careful, it will wok OK.. In the dremel section of big box stores.

I have a Dremel carbide bit, but it's just slightly too big for 1/16". Maybe the one I have is for 1/8" line. I bought the smallest one available at Home Depot. I'll have to take a look when I get home.
