Bowclamp Modern technology used to realize an age-old idea: a perfect bow shaped arc. The Bowclamp's patented design - made possible only with the help of computerized, numerically-controlled cutting technology (CNC) - allows for equal clamping pressure along the entire length of the glue line... with only one clamp at each end!

Default The Big Time...

Progress in this game is often hard to measure. It seems to kind of plateau. Big power, industrial machines... You want the right tool for the job.

This is one of those times...

Introducing the newest (old) member of the family...the Better Pack 555s industrial tape dispenser... Hands down the best tape dispenser money can buy, or so I'm told (actually I got it for free, but ya know...).



Boy is she sweet!

Looks awesome! Can you show a movie of her working? Is she dangerous?

Gotta have a video! I can imagine the beast belching green smoke and all the colored buttons lighting up in a seemingly random sequence.

Craig,

Will those of us who purchased Bowclamps before this taping machine be able to purchase boxes taped with the machine to retrofit our clamps. In other words is this tape backwards compatible?

Thanks,
Rutager

P.S. used the Bowclamps again today, worked great.

video to follow for sure. That's the hydration storage vessel on the port side, and right up on the bow is the adjustable heater mechanism... critical for dialing in the proper amount of adhesive drying time. Goes all the way from a "low" setting to a very impressive "high".

Rutager here's what I can do... any future purchases, I'm happy to use twice the tape (I've been wanting to hit some of those higher numbered buttons... but ya know... gotta walk before you can run)

I should add it goes all the way up to, like... 36" I think... I'm simply not ready to handle such a beast.

Thanks for putting that together, Craig. You have a really high voice...

Gotta love the 3-brush system. These days there's no excuse for going with one or two brushes.

Gonna get the tape aerial attachment? Looks pretty cool...
