New Pump Primed for Action!

Isn't it a pain to have to prime a pump before use?

Wouldn't you rather put it in a bucket and start pumping compound straight away?

That's exactly what you can do with Tapepro's new improved “Primed for Action” pump.

Always looking for innovative ideas, Tapepro has made a couple of small improvements to its robust pump design which negates the need for priming – it's ready to go!

  Tapepro Tips and Tricks

Tapepro Flatbox Blade Smooth going!

When fitting a new blade to a Tapepro Flat Box, to ensure that it follows the position of the blade holder you need to put a couple of bends in the blade. We have found that a “W” shape works best:

  • make a slight bend at each end approximately 20mm in from the ends,
  • then make a bend in the middle in the opposite direction.

When fitting the blade to the blade holder, start at one end and press the blade into the groove. You may need a pair of pliers to press in the last bend.

This ensures that the blade is secure and that it will follow the position of the blade holder, which you control with the adjusting ratchet, giving you the profile you need for the best finish.
