First, take a measurement of the wood pieces that are to be glued together. Then, either find a pipe that is already the right size or cut a section of pipe to match this measurement, with about an extra foot. Metal or PVC pipe can be used because both are durable, you just need to ensure that one end of the pipe is threaded. Attach the static clamp to the non-threaded side and secure it in place, then attached the tightening clamp to the threaded end of the pipe. Size up the wood and make sure it is connected in the way you need to it to co me out in the end, and then slowly tighten the clamp down the threaded section until it is held together firmly. If you are working with multiple pipe clamps, it can be easier to tighten one side a little and then the other side a little more, incrementally increasing the hold on the wood until there is balanced pressure.

You want the hole in your tube to be about two-thirds the width of the desired caulk joint. Most caulking jobs should only require a narrow bead. If you're caulking molding to prepare it for paint, start with the opening very small, just over 1/16 in. diameter. To caulk your tub, a 1/8-in. diameter hole is usually about right. Some caulk tubes need to be punched in order to start the flow of caulk. Use a thin wire like a scrap electrical wire or coat hanger to avoid enlarging the hole at the tip.

Therefore, if you have little to no experience with using a caulking gun, now may be a great time for you to head on down to your local Home Depot, Ace Hardware, or Lowes and get yourself one. You're going to need to identify any cracks or gaps that you may have in your window sills, your doors, your foundation, or your siding, and fill them in. Caulk is essentially a rugged, permanent building material that is used to fill in gaps and create impenetrable barriers. You see them in your bathrooms where the tub meets the tiles. And you see them in window sills. If you have ever had to fill a hole in the wall, you probably used to caulk to fill it.

Before filling the gap with sealant, you should first clean the area to ensure that the sealant is applied correctly. This means there should be no dirt, old paint and left over sealant. If you fail to do this, you might not be able to apply the sealant properly and you will not be able to protect your floor from water leaks. Another reason why you should do this is to avoid wasting your time and money since it is very likely that you will repeat these tasks.

Bricks, for instance, lose there appeal if caulking is smeared all over them. My suggestion is to place masking tape over this area to protect the surface. Remove the tape when you are finished.
