    New toy for me

    My hands can handle about 2 squeezes of a manual caulking gun. So I got an air assist. I have a kitchen remodel underway so this will be very handy!

    Good for you Carol, I am sure with my carpel tunnel, I'd be buying something like it.

    Carol, I came this close |--| to getting one of those myself last week. I was killing my hand trying to get asphalt roofing cement out of the tube with a regular caulking gun. (I hate roof repairs anyway, especially when they make me hurt.) Turns out if you cut the tip back far enough to get a big enough hole, it pumps pretty easily...just leaves a bigger bead. For roof repairs the big bead was no problem, but I'll bet for you application it would be.

    I thought the caulk would clog up the vacuum pump...

    That's why all of my caulking guns are old school.

    Vaughn you should try just cutting the top off the tube.
