What rotary burr or bit should I use to remove old grout?


Carl-- I have the Alltrade rotary tool set (#481451) with 3/32" and 1/8" shanks. I need to remove old grout around my tub and shower. What burr or bit should I use? Is there a grout removal kit? Thanks!


Hello Lynn,
You can use any of the burrs that will fit the spacing between the tiles but be careful that the burr you’re using isn't too large a diameter that may have a tendency to chip the tile edges. To answer your query about a grout accessory, we do not manufacture this. Just use care in the removal process and if you’re going to re-grout, it isn't necessary to remove all the grout down to the bottom. Only half way down would be sufficient.

Thanks for asking,
