    The only tool Ive seen for that is this squeegee. They usually give em out for free at the supply house I go to.

    Not what I was looking for. The tool permits one to seal the side of an AH with only a couple of inches between the AH and the wall.

    Looks simple enough to make.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    Just what I need... another *am tool.

    My van is overflowing now.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    Yeh, my tool count seems to keep growing and growing.

    Soon I will need to put the tools in the driver's seat and I will not be able to drive.

    I used credit cards for years before the idea of using a body-putty (Bondo) applicator occurred to me. Eventually I saw a display showing a 'taping tool' sitting out with the tape. In a pinch I have just used my hand - inside of a cotton work glove.

    Usually a guy with the brain of a goldfish. Forgets things in a few hours. Have to tell them the same thing everyday...always wants to know what time is lunch and when is quitting time. And seems to think he can work with a tool in one hand while he's 'LOL'ing with his phone in the other.
