I wanted a red adhesive gun so that drew me to this one. It had a nice tutorial on YouTube which was very helpful as well. It took getting used to but it is not top heavy or clunky.
I purchase one of these tape runners and, while it worked, it was very good, lightweight and easy to use. However, the tape broke and from that point on, it was totally useless to me. There are no videos, explanations or anything anywhere that can guide one thru the process of how to rethread this tape dispensor. It’s very frustrating, when, essentially, I have to throw a practically full tape cartridge because there is no way to figure out how to put it back together or even telling one, if the tape breaks, you are SOL. It makes me reluctant to purchase a refill because this may happen again.
