    i see hat it's possible to buy a tool that looks like a cordless screwdriver and a mastic/caulk/silicone gun combined. I've got a lot of beads of sealant to run out and it's quite thick..
    Makes my arms ache somewhat but my labourer really struggles as he's a fair bit weaker and his lines of mastic end up looking like pigeon ****. I figure that if here's a device that attaches to a normal cordless it should produce reasonably consistent beads then all I have to get rough to him is how to hold a cut nozzle at the correct angle (a task in itself)

    Short of throwing hundreds at a dedicated gun, anyone know of a cheaper attachment for existing cordless?

    Why not just spend £40+ and buy a ryobi caulking gun?

    I fear that 40 quid ish is the body only price, no battery, no charger which makes it rather hard to use ;)

    All my kit is Bosch, and they don't seem to make a caulking gun.. I guess I could see if I can find a knackered charger for mine and use he connector to interface one of my batteries to the ryobi.. Every other gun on fleabay seems to be 150 plus, and for that I think I'd rather leave a fan heater on the tubes of mastic and hope the lad develops bigger arms quickly!
