    If you are looking for things that make caulking a problem, I suggest having the ability to immediately release pressure on the piston. That will reduce dripping.

Hitachi framing nail gun, fires ok on a large tank shop compressor but on a portable compressor it continually blows air from the piston. The gun has a new o ring kit from a repair shop. They can't find...

the compressor is not putting enough air into the guns cylinder and the escaping air is a safety feature for safety. You need to get a larger comp or increase the pressure coming out of hose. there should be a gauge on comp. Set it for suggested pressure for each separate tool. Be Safe!
My answers are short and sweet. Common sense mostly. If you are trying to get something for nothing...Don't waste my time! Remember if something sounds to good to be true that it usually is. I've spent many years of my life trying to cheat the system and was pretty good at it. This all changed when I discovered that people were doing the same thing to me. What comes around, goes around. Karma! Now I assist people in making win-win deals...that are legit!

Cant move caulking gun handle

There should be a thumb release on the shaft at the handle end, press with your thumb and then pull back with the other hand on the shaft. If you have a used tube in the gun, it could be that some of the caulk came out the inside of the tube and hardened so that you cannot pull back the shaft, you will now have to cut the tube off with a utility knife to remove the old dried caulk

How do i use the Stanley caulk gun?

All Caulk gun are used the same way no matter which model you have, hear are the instractions
  • Load a tube of caulk into a caulking gun, making sure it's well seated at both ends

  • Use a utility knife to cut the tip of the spout. Cut off as little as possible, taking into consideration the size of the 'bead' of caulk you need. Some people like to cut the spout at an angle, while others cut it straight; it doesn't make a big difference

  • If using caulk that comes in a cardboard tube, look for a second seal at the base of the spout. Insert a nail or awl through the spout to puncture the seal. Many caulking guns come with such a puncturing device. (Plastic tubes usually don't have a second, inner seal.)

    The color blue gun has gone milky and I need to replace it. Is this a common problem?

    For a television of this age it is common for the source to deteriorate due to heat.
    Depending on the build and design it could be a blue light gun as in the old projection tv's, or if it is actually an LCD projection then the entire light element will need to be replaced.
