I was at the lumberyard replacing my cheap quart gun and was thinking about buying a better one (for a lot more $$), then noticed with great surprise that it's actually made in this country. What could I do... I bought it!
DG, no, it doesn't have the spike or the spout cutter either. I salvaged a several dozen lightning rods from a crawl space insulation pullout and put them in the bottom of a toolbox that rides with me. It's enough supply to pierce several thousand tubes over the course of a few decades or so. Highly recommended.
If you're on a job with rough electrical, you can of course use one of Sparky's ground wires, as long as you clean it before you stuff it back into the box.
I buy them a Sherwin Williams for about 12 buck each, By 5 at a time. Throw them away instead of cleaning them. My crew goes through anywhere from 30 to 100 tube of sealant a week depending on the week of course http://www.sherwin-williams.com/arch...#tab-details-4
No price on the website but I think it's the same gun
