Tape flows smoother
Stainless Steel for years of dependable usage.
Made of stainless steel. Speed Wheel is adjustable to your tension preference. Thumb screw for mud adjustment. Complete with wood handle. Holds 500 foot roll of tape. Adjustable strap with thumb rest. Right or left handed.
Nose adjust: excelent
Ease to run: really good (first time I use a banjo and used to think It could be a problem with the knife.. if it could accidentally cut the tape, but not)
Weak point: the side trap (side handle) not even good, really weak (although you can home made replace it)
usefull tool (great and simple old American invention!!)
