Try to rip a long piece of tape from that crappy little dispenser that comes with a roll of Scotch tape and you’ll realize why you use a tape gun with packing tape. Harbor Freight sells a cheap solution to your taping woes — a micro tape gun for standard tape rolls.
This compact (2-3/4″x 1-1/4″x 4-1/4″) tape gun uses tape rolls with the 1″ diameter hole in the center. It can accommodate tape rolls up to 3/4″ wide and 2-3/4″ in diameter.
Is this a tool or just a toy? We’re not sure, but for only $2 it might be worth a try next time you hit your local Harbor Freight.
