The caulking gun was invented by Canadian Theodore Witt. Mr. Witte is described as the kind of person who seeks as much inspiration as possible. In 1894, he used ratchet pistons to use window putty to clean and smoothly seal. His caulking gun is very similar to the cake decorator's gun, which suggests that he might have got his inspiration from the kitchen. Witte's invention was not warmly welcomed at first, despite its functionality. Use a caulking gun to apply silicone sealant on the wall. With the increase of caulking guns, the availability of caulking tubes is also very popular. In fact, you can even use reusable caulking tubes to extrude cured epoxy. Some people even took the idea of a caulking gun and moved it into the tube. Pressurizing the tube can use a procedure similar to that of a caulking gun to push out the caulking.


Everyone needs a caulking gun

Today, almost everyone who does it themselves needs a caulking gun. Gap caulking is an inexpensive and effective way to prevent water damage, and it is also an ideal choice for weather protection. It can also be used to fill small cracks and seal doors. Remember to use anti-mold and anti-mold caulking agents when working in the bathroom. Use the caulking gun when you need to do it.

First of all, be sure to read and follow the instructions on the compound box, because there may be differences between the compounds. The best adhesive is a clean, dry surface. They should be free of any paint and old caulks. A putty knife can scrape off old caulks and paint well. Keep the gun at a 45 degree angle. The best way to make sure you have the right angle is to see the plug being pressed into the crack as it comes out of the pipe. Try to caulk the stop with a uniform thread. Push the caulk to the bottom to avoid air bubbles. Apply it on both sides of the crack for better protection. Sometimes, if you caulk again, the caulk will shrink. Man using caulking gun.
