I work on mine,, sent it in once and was WAY less than satisfied by the results, can you give us a little more info, what type, how old, what EXCALLTLY is it doing???Drive dog on my bazooka broke today and needs a repair. The part is $40 dollars. Anyone done this repair? Is it something I can do myself or do I need to send it into the shop?
Brock,, dern it,,, thats the excuse I ALWAYS use to buy a new one,,,, thought I had a corner on that market!!!:thumbup:
D's it really is not that hard to fix em, just order the part, download a schemtic, take your time and do it. Just as a guess, we tend to put alot of stress on the dog, after we fill the tube, and they give out after a time. Also we tend to use the dog to roll out some tape for those pesky little 4, 5, and 6 inch pieces of tape.Here's the part that broke...
which is part of this...
I left the bazooka in the truck over a couple of cold nights and am thinking that might have had something to do with it. It cracked and snapped apart where it threads onto the stem. The make is Tapetech.
I almost bought a used Drywall Master for $330 on Ebay this morning and have inquired about a new Columbia but they go for over $1700-ouch!. Besides what I really want for Christmas is a Graco Mark V(Yours back in biz Capt?)
Luckily I had my old Super-Taper on site which saved the day but boy was it messy.
I agree, butt it has rained 7" over the last two days and I ani;t gonna go out to the truck and pull one out of the tool box to look at it till it quits raining,, get back to ya on that after the rain stopsCapt's right, it's a very simple repair. It's been a few years but I'm thinking you just loosen a couple of hex screws and slide the shaft out.
Go for it!
hey d, wondering if you do any work in sparwood, i need some taping and mudding done, whats your phone number,
Let me throw this in here, bound to start a controvecy. I use wd-40 to keep my zooks running smooth. I have some friends that just got into tools,,, I have taped a cpl jobs for them with thier zooka to help em get started on it. They REFUSE to use wd on it, cause it came with a sticker saying to not use it, I explained my reasons for it and told em I never have a problem with it. Well they WON"T use it, okay, its thier stuff and they can do what they want, but thier dog (here it is) is begining to hang and slip over the stops cause it is gunked up inside,,,, in a few more houses, they will either break it, or have to send it into the shop to get overhauled, but at least they didn't use wd on it.Part arrived at my supplier on Monday and will ship with my next board delivery.
I've got a half dozen small renos and a heritage building restoration over the next week so haven't had a need for it. Will definitely be buying another on e-bay for parts as I can't afford to be without it again. Will let you all know how it goes.
