Another question...

I noticed that most guns might have 1/2 stick of glue when the back end of the stick enters the barrel...

If you wanted to change glue type, how do you get the old stick out to insert a new different glue stick...? Or do you just waste the original stick and squeeze it out...?

Does the point come off and push it out backwards...?

Just thinkin' ahead...

Not sure about getting one out like that. Colour indicates both holding power and required temperature range. The darker the yellow the hotter temperature to melt it/ faster it hardens and the better it holds. The white/ clear ones have the weakest bond at the lowest temp.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Glue another stick to it, then you can pull it right out.

I have a single temp gun, I have never needed to use low melt temp guns. My wife has a little low melt gun from the craft store that uses the smaller diameter sticks, about the only thing I could see needing that for is gluing wires down on a circuit board.

Although I often use double-sided tape, sometimes it wonít work, Jon.

When I was making my Madame Zola Fortune Teller project, I needed to hold the box on the CNC so I could cut a large hole for the mechanism. The box was too tall for any clamps, and the bottom was open, so I screwed cleats along the sides to prevent any lateral movement. As a precaution against the box lifting from the table, I used hot glue where the sides met the cleats. I was able to make the cut with no problems, and remove the glue when I was finished.

@Gaffboat

Oliver...I couldn't help notice in the picture of the gun that the on/off switch is also the 60/100 selector...

Is it in fact dual temp or how would the switch allow for selecting 100W if it's also the power switch...?

Signed...Confused...

What you need depends on what you intend to use it for. I have two of the regular single heat guns that I use for light duty stuff which is ok for most things. I had a need for something stronger and more permanent so I got one of these :
https://www.gluegun.com/products/tit...r-pur-glue-gun

This thing is expensive and the cartridges are not cheep but it really holds. If you have to take a joint apart one of the pieces will often break. The glue also stands up to exterior applications as well. The gun is made by Steinel and the glue by Titebond.
