I got two as well now, Goldblatt and TT, The TT the better, Old, But has a nicer feel to it, A homax still rocks though Very under rated. Just get one of those guij, screw the zooka, it will be more hassel for you than you realise, and a delco creaser wheel, they are not for sale in usa, get one off there site. You dont even need a pump, get a quickfill, that will fill your homax and flat boxes, Get a CP for coating angles, K.I.S.S, Keep It Simple Stuped, those tools Dont have many working parts, Your out of reach for parts and shippings a hassel so get the simplest tools your can, Actually, I prob should have asked you want your jobs are before saying that.

Hey Vanman lad, If you get some white plastic plumbing drainpipe and a heat gun, and a vice, and some tin foil, you can make a spout to fit a can am, I did, But then i wanted my can am back and got sick of changing the head over.

A peice of alloy about 5mm wide cut to length so you can put the pipe in a vice, heat it, slowly tighten in vice and put in the peice of alloy it the spout and clamp the pipe to this to form the spout, Wrap you can am tube end in a couple of turns of tin foil, so the plastic dosnt stick, Heat the pipe end and fit the CP with the tin foil, The pipe will contract when it cools, If you dont tiin foil it then it will be super tight, Get this right and it will fit nice and stug, You can remove it for cleaning and pop it back on at will, I made 4 quite quick once i figured it out, Get plumbing drain pipe slightly wider on the inside than the tube and your sorted.

See it in this pic, It works ok, But the quickfill is easier to draw mud with.

You'll wish you ordered a quickfill, they last forever and a day, they're great for filling box's, one suck and one squirt and it's full, ten times easier to suck than a standard compound tube too, if you do what Cazna said, that'll work a lot better than just cutting the end off.

The delko is a chunky solid wheel, seems fine, Its depends on your jobs, Read the hotmud thread, If i was doing a full house and the weather was good i would all purpose and zooka, But i get a few renos in stages, kitchens, Bathrooms, bedrooms, hallway etc in existing homes, Recession makes people spend on there homes and not build, This is were the homax and hotmud excels, I can work all day and earn, Not do a few hrs and come back in a few days for another coat and so on. Its just another option not to take for granted I also have the marshalltown tapeshooter, Thats ok but heaver and i find it much harder on the hand so i favour the homax, Light and easy.

Re: Homax Banjo, Delko Creaser wheel, & Quickfill pump


We use the regular banjos (Kraft) and pour our mud in. JUst open lid ,position tape, grab bucket,pour and swoop up so it dont drip . Once mastered its the quickest way to fil on Kraft banjo. Can you fil Homax banjo when closed? That would be pretty slick beings that is what takes the most time.

Use mud about thick pancake mix ish, Fill to about 75% till you get the feel of it, Use smaller rolls of paper tape, and just watch where the paper feeds off the roll, If you use bigger rolls they can go off track and jamb it up, When carrying it about hold it wheels down, If you hold it wheels up and only have a small tab of paper it will disapper into it, Carry a 3 or 4 knife to tear the tape and be careful not to tear it at the mouth or you will have to restart the tape.

Its all simple stuff, once sorted taping it so easy and perfect amount of mud insures a very flat tape, Even if i do a patch up now if its not to small i still reach for the homax, Its just easier and flatter.

Gaz is the homax king, I will never catch up to the amount of tapes he has run with a homax. You got any more tips Gaz, I think one from you was if it gets set up with mud just leave it in a bucket of water overnight and it falls off.

You have to take off the side to fill chris, I have a marshalltown banjo as well and didnt really like it, Its just to big for my hands and much greater strain and leverage, So the homax i prefer, Light, fast, and easy. No leaks.
