    I have 1 and i use it for finishing internals!! No probs with it at all but there is a learning curve 2 the thing!! As for maintenance,its gets a clean on the outside and dumped in a pail of water till next time!
    Now and again i will give it a spray of oil!

    Thanks for the replys guys I must have a look, they are pretty cheap to hire. Tell me how do you fill them up I know you plug them int the pump but do you have to turn the handle of something like a bazooka. Im How does it work what pushes the muck out. ???

    I believe they are gas powered and you twist the gold knurled handle part to release the joint cement. I've had a wee shot of one twice but couldnt get to grips with it in that time so stuck with what I know, a 7" corner box.
    Your messages are really important to us

    So do you have to refill the gass if so How and from what. sorry for the numpty questions but I only saw the guy run it up and around the internals which was fast and impressive but Im thinking there must be more to it than that.

    no mate just fill with pump and turn dial on end. cant use to apply gear for bedding tapes dont hold enough j c. just get a columbia applicator tube. quicker and simple. no pump needed. put in tub pull handle... try using a filler/finish compound for bedding roll in then flush allow to set then top same day and get great finish. no tape movement filled out perfect and no edge plus quick... what more do you want. the job is simple best keep it that way.

    What fliier finnish do you use, isnt there a danger of it going off in the tube. This is my biggest problem at this time of year the tapes not drying enough before I need to top them off.
