Hi Randy,

I know where you are coming from. I have going throw many types. 
Currently we use the Bothers P-Touch with the TZe Tape with the specific 
"Cable/Wire Labels" tape. It works ok and the labels last much longer 
then the previous masking tape with sharpe method.

Overall I pay more money then I would like for the machine and the Tape. 
But it seems to work well and that does mean something.

One of my techs have been look at the  "TekGun - Cable Labeling System" 
for cables. It does look kind of cool. Anyone here have experience with 
that TekGun and what are your thoughts on it?
