should i use a masonary chisel or some kind of scraping tool to remove mortar between cinder blocks?

should i use a chisel? i’m afraid i might start cracking all the other mortar if i hit to hard
i only need to fix a few. i don’t want to spend tons of money on a piece of equipment like a drill if i don’t have to.

what is a brand or type of chisel?

    The best tool is a grinder with a masonry wheel. Be very careful, the grinder will go through a brick as easily as it will mortar.

    Use a rotozip with a diamond wheel blade attachment.
    You will still need a cold chisel to get the corners and details.

    You can also use a roto hammer drill with a 3/8″ bit.

    use a 4 1/2 in. angle grinder with a 1/4 in. diamond blade…or ask your hardware dude for a tuck pointing chisel or a plugging chisel…these are made expressly for taking out mortar joints…

    If you don’t to spend a lot of money and do it by hand you need a hammer and plugging chisel.
    I would think after posting this question 4 times you would have the work done already.
