I am interested in these as well. Do they make them to hold a full size tube of floor adhesive?

Yes. You can order just the gun with a qt tube, 10 oz or sausage.

The gun is one part.
The tube is another.

So I ordered the other 2 tubes but sofar, I've only used the qt tube (aka, full size tube).
It interchanges pretty easily.

I recommend anything but a Husky.
Even those noisy Porter-Cable pancake compressors are better.

Sure, if you like spending your time exchanging crappy tools instead of being productive. I don't waste my time with harbor freight or similar junk tools.
just sayin'

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I think that depends on what it is...

I have a "Chicago Electric compressor that has been running for over 7 years......


They are disposable tools/ machinery.....I know that.....


But I am just pushing air...and it's done well....


I never go for oil-less......bad choice IMO......


Those end up at the curb no matter what or where it comes from...within a matter of time......short time....it fails.....


JMPOV,......

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I believe,
The minute it needs precision.....yes....
Go for the the best of what's out there , depending on your budget, your business, what your doing....


Most of what is out there is made in chicom.....

Except for the German tools,.....

Or,......

OWWM......made in America..........


Personally,....

I don't really care what someone used to make a very high end ,wood, piece of architecture......

It's the outcome....and yes,... HF is NOT the place to go for precision machinery,..",..."

But.....


I will. NEVER harp on someone that designed and built something "high end" with what ever it was that they used.....


It's irrelevant........IMO...

I guess that's why they call those people- craftsman.......


Go back 100 years..........think about what they had to use....

Some pretty amazing work..........homes......buildings...the architecture........etc,etc,......


JMPOV,....

This little gem showed up on the front step the other day. This little fugger is quiet! Plenty portable at about 35 lbs, certainly lighter than the old dewalt/emglo twin tank. Did I mention it's super quiet? If it's in the next room, almost don't even know when it kicks on. Worth every penny!

Just for the haters. 49.99 plus 6.97 for a 2 year + tax. (grex not included )

Can't beat it really. Even have a 1/4" stapler if I ever need one.

It has one. The stupid gun hook thing comes off and doubles as a bottle top popper.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Well... I fell off the wagon. And bought a green mitre saw

Among hand tools and a 1/4 sheet sander... today was this.

Listed at 85$ clearance.. talked to the guy in the store, dropped to 75$.

Nothing special. Enough for my side jobs. Now I gotta find or make a stand..
