I'm an apocaloptimist. I'm well aware that everything is going to hell - but I'm convinced it's going to be okay.

Is there any real difference between the guns other than the color. Like is that Blue one better than the black one you sent to Jack and I to try out. If so I'll trade yah

Chad, the setting tool that I gave to Jack some months ago is the ergo tool without the setting adjustment knob, of course since then we did some other improvements to it (that was the reason for Tuscan) to send some of the prototypes out to members of this forum so we could ear suggestions from the guys in the field and listen to what they suggest as improvements.We always want to ear from you guys and any suggestions that you may have. I feel confident that the new setting tools are the cherry on the cake and it will make the installation with TLS even easier. Thank you to all of you for your suggestions.

Thanks.

Mick

I know we all work at a different pace, etc. but for those of you who have used this often...how many caps would you estimate you use on a good day of laying 18 x 18's? I'm trying to decide how many to buy initially if I invest in this.

Mark, the most common purchase for the cap especially at the begining stage is 200 caps.

Hey Mark,

The 200 bucket is what I purchased, and it seems just right for a decent day by myself. There is always something else that needs to be done if you run out. Only a couple of days did I run out of the "soldiers".

Hope this helps,

Scott

Mick you have sent me 3 guns. The first was the ergo adjustable. The last 2 were the black version of the above pictured tool and the economy version.

If you plan on using the TLS for a few years, you might consider the 500 cap bucket to start. While it may seem like a lot, you'll be surprised at how many your crew the other subs on the job break the first week before they come to respect the caps. When they get too much thinset on them I throw them away as they stop working. At $1.06 each, it isn't worth the time to clean them.
