View Full Version : tape adapter

is there an adapter that could attach to the gun on the Mark v that you could push over your mud filling nozzle on the automatic taper. The advantage being you could carry the gun to each room, fill the taper then carry on until the next refill.

those machines were rather big for the operations they performed. They didnt turn me on but they prob got a use for someone.
I was thinking of a simple 3/4 thread nut to fit on the gun and a filling adapter that can be pushed over the filling tube.
It would be used by people who have an airless and a taper like a cont. flow but without a hose hanging of it and no pumping by hand

i know bfast was working on the concept, but since the crash they have stopped developing new products. you may not want to be pushing that much pressure into your taper though, i could see bad things happening. Current best option is a few more pumps.

you can adjust the speed the material comes out and also i have a spray gun from sto that has a soft start on the trigger. I relieve presure on the trigger and it lightens the spray pressure and you can continue at a slow pace.
I would think that the valve could also be adjustuble like on the Apla tech cfs inline gun.

Here's an idea. Use your CFS trigger that attaches to your CFS pole,

You'd probably be able to do it with some basic plumbing fittings.

You've got a Cinta pump, haven't you?
