  • Euro style caulking gun - Any use?

    Hey everyone,

    I bought a box of tools at an auction recently and one of the items was some type of european style caulking gun made by a German company. As you might imagine, it's very well made, but it's bigger than a regular gun and smaller than the large contractor sized guns. I googled the company Ara Technik, but didn't find much.

    Does this thing have any use or value here in Canada?

    Here's a pic.

    That's a gun for sausages of caulking. They're widely used in construction.

      Yours is the "hand tool" version.

        As Benders says it's a common sausage gun. Takes these https://ca.brockwhite.com/catalog/ma...ants/2-0700374 available all over Canada at commercial building suppliers. It's a nice one .... all metal. they retail on amazon for about $50 https://www.amazon.ca/s/?ie=UTF8&key...l_8tkxfqz8q0_b

          Thanks for all the info. I've never heard of these "sausage" style guns, so it's good to learn something new. I don't think I would ever use it, so I'll probably post it for sale locally.

          Cheers.

            They are more of a “bigger the gob, better the job” kind of applicator. Not that you can’t do a nice bead, but they are volume oriented. Expansion caulk, waterproofing, primary stages of construction VS aluminum trim, let’s say. You get the idea. They are quite common. COX is a popular brand, at one point made in both the States and England. Maybe they still are, but they should have a decent price for what they are. I myself prefer cartridge style Albion brand.
