Task Tool 5 in 1 Caulking Tool

When doing any project we all know the two things we always need are shims and caulk.  These two items can make even the junkiest projects look professional.  So speaking of caulk, I wanted to tell you about a cool little tool called the 5 in 1 all purpose caulking tool by Task Tools.
