Somewhere in the ethernet should be a primer on all types of caulking applicators (guns). But I am only guessing about that.
Wonder if there are air assisted ones?
I do think there are air ones that work off a compressor supplied air supply. But I am wondering about something with a portable air supply (like a gas cartridge in a paintball gun etc.)
The air compressor ones I have seen (in manufacturing plants) generally feed out of 5 gallon or larger drums. Not from caulk style tubes.
Course I think 5 gallons is only a modest estimate of the gunkum on the roof of my Airstream.
Actually it would be nice to have idea of how many tubes or the amount of gunk total on a 31 footer.
I know we used to have a Vulkum sales rep on the list here. Have not heard much from him lately. (As with many many other key contributors). Has blah blah blah, BS, & boredom killed the golden geese?
