Two High-Quality Caulk Guns From Tajima and Cox
Patrick McCombe shows the benefits of the Tajima Convoy Light and the Cox Ascot pro-grade caulk guns.
You won’t find them at the home center, but a super lightweight caulk gun from Tajima and a high-leverage caulk gun from Cox are worthy additions to your tool kit. The caulk guns you can get at the home center are okay, though not great—but they really fall apart when it comes time to dispense polyurethane adhesives, which are very thick. Better for thick material, the Cox gun has a rotating barrel for lining up the bead and plastic clips to hold the tube. The other caulk gun I like is the Tajima, which has the benefit of being very lightweight, plus it has a hook that can be used to hang the tool when it’s not in use.
