An Automatic Drywall Taper is used to apply the first coat of joint compound and tape to flat and angled drywall seams. It significantly increases drywall taping efficiency as it applies the first bed of compound and tape in one pass.
The DEWALT Automatic Drywall Taper is features a high-quality extruded aluminum compound tube that has been hard-coat anodized for extreme durability and easy cleanup. Internally, the finish ensures smooth operation while also prolonging the life of the premium composite plunger. The head of the DEWALT auto taper is precision-machined from high-grade billet aluminum that is resistant to corrosion and premature breakdown. Its side plates, internal plates, cable drum, drive chain and other components are stainless steel for long term durability and a quick-clean cover plate utilizes a single thumb screw for easy removal during cleaning.
The DEWALT automatic drywall taper features an integrated, trigger-controlled creaser wheel to efficiently set the tape into drywall corners as well as a quick-change tape holder that makes exchanging tape rolls fast and easy. For ultra-smooth operation, the DEWALT automatic taper utilizes a rolling chain idling system that reduces drag as well as easy-glide wheels embedded into the control sleeve. An adjustable roller brake and cutting spring tensioner allows the user to customize the feel of the taper to personal preference.
