    Can a bazooka be run without a gooseneck? After 30 years, I finally get to test one for a month, but didn't come with gooseneck. Have a few pumps and box fillers lying around. Easy answer is to buy one,but I'm not sure I want to leave my SuperTaper behind. All tips, mod or hack appreciated.

    Hello all, I am considering buying a new bazooka, as my current TT is getting tired, and my DWM which I bought used... and due to neglect, I inherited someone else's problem. It needs some TLC. While most of my tools are TT, I really didn't like the taper when I first got it. Way too...

They were telling him to use the wall to advance it. 2bjr always feeds his tape forward by hand, maybe 5% of the time using the wall. He has picked up his own little tricks...
