Hello Tom,
I know what you mean by slow. I have found a system that has really speeded up tuck & point work for me.
First thing you need is a good pair of heavy duty chemical resistant gloves. The last pair I bought was at HD for $7. They are made of a heavy latex material.
Mix the mortar a little dry. Without much trouble you can use your hands to pack the mortar into the joints and then 'strike' them using your point-up trowel and striking tool. This works especially well on stone walls.
I know it might sound nuts to you traditionalists, but it moves a lot of mortar fast for me.
