Drywall Tape Applicator

Image

This drywall tape applicator from Warner Tool makes clean seams by automatically applying a thin layer of drywall mud as tape spools from the applicator, the maker says; the installer then follows with a 6-inch broad knife to smooth the joint. Mud and tape can be reloaded with one hand, and mud flow control can be adjusted with wing nuts. The tool is made of aluminum, weighs 2.9 pounds, and holds a standard 500-foot roll of dry tape. It can be operated with one hand via a nylon-web side strap.
Cost: $135. 877-927-6371. www.warnertool.com.
