If you have an older 555 and want to extend the life here’s a clever idea sent to us from Mike at Spray Horse in North Carolina-actually this is a great idea for any tape dispenser. The cover keeps it clean when not in use and the plastic lid keep water and paer dust off the packing table !

Upgrade Your Old Tape Machine with the E Conversion Package

Tigerseal Products sales & service can upgrade your old machine.  This will eliminate 40% of the moving parts, including the electro-mechanical key switches, measuring wheel, clutch assembly, trip rollers, etc.: basically all of the parts inside the key drum (including the key drum). But we don’t stop there. We also replace the moistening brushes, top heater assembly, front & rear covers, water bottle, motor brushes and upper feed wheel. We even replace your old rusty lower tape plate with a new stainless steel tape plate. And those old rusted fasteners? We replace those with new stainless steel fasteners.

Your old tape machine is completely re-worked, cleaned, adjusted, new parts installed, and tested twice before returning to you. We also treat the rust around the moistening tank with a strong rust inhibitor, POR15 for a longer more productive life.

All this for $415. All of the new parts come with our full 1 year warranty against defects in material and workmanship. This cost is less then half the price of most new tape dispensers. Call us at 1-800-899-9389 for more details. Conversions take 5 business days.
