    Default metal corner tape dispenser


    I was wandering if anyone knew somewhere to buy a metal corner tape dispenser online! A guy on site had one he got from Sheffield insulation. It seemed really handy, we don't use flex tape much but when we do it drives me mad when the box tears open and the roll unravels around the job!!!!!! I don't really use Sheffield insulation so thought it would just be easier to buy on line but im having trouble finding anywhere to buy one, thanks

    Just wrap a bit of fiba tape around the box of flex tape, this will stop it spilling out.

    Cut a slot into the side of a plastic biscuit tin,put the flex inside and feed out the slot and put the lid back on.

    I'm looking for a tool that does all my taping for me. The last tool that I tried recently was fuckng useless. Had been taping for 7 yrs and couldn't even do an internal without getting a miss behind the tapes. Not going to bother giving tapers work anymore. Fuck'em.

    When cutting flex the first thing I do is throw the box away! I just find it easier holding the roll and cutting.
    On the biscuit tin idea, what if the lid comes off? Carnage, there would be flex tape all over the place- and jammie dodgers!
