    Hi Gaz and welcome to the forum. There are some secondhand taping tools on Ebay at the moment. I posted a link to some today. Better Than Ever would be 'better than nothing.' Get yourself a pump, a Northstar box handle and a 10" & 12" flat box. That'll get you started in the world of machine taping.

    Hi gaz672, Start with finding a good supply of work, get some money together then get some decent tools (tapetech), you can earn money with hand tools to start i know i did.

    Welcome to the forum Gaz. Tony's right about an ebay search, theres plenty second hand tools for sale even though some of them could do with a good wash.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    Thats the hard bit finding the work,it is tight at the moment but if a blind chicken pecks long enough it will eventually find corn.
