Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Yeh, I know, wrong female connector.
Dan, would heat resistance be a requirement? Provided the cord can carry sufficient current, it looks to me like it would be more or less insulated from the heat in the handle, by the receptacle into which it plugs.

To test the old glue gun I used a standard lamp cord and had 2 wire connectors on the end to attach to the pins. While this works fine and is appropriately sized for the voltage/amperage it isn't secure as a molded end. Not realizing until just now I actually have a cable like that within inches of the gun. I have a Canon battery charger not 6 inches away on my desk with the same cord as the laptop cord which I also tried last night. The spacing of the pins is a bit narrower on the cord but flexible enough to work. If needed I could split the connector, trim it slightly and .......wait for it......glue it back together.

I have three or four glue guns. I find them at garage sales and the only reason I buy them is for the glue sticks that come with them. What I have found is that there is no difference between the good ones and the Dollar store ones. Sure one might heat up a little faster but once they are up to operating temperature they all just melt glue.

That is a very common power cord. Here is a link on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Listed-Cable-...SIN=B0025ZPX6O

The power cord is only charging the battery, not directly creating the heat!

Looks like the connector on my club's coffee pot. Two pins, oversized connector. Check a second hand shop, some have bins filled with all kinds of cords and cables. Take the gun with you. Porbably cost a buck or two. I hate tossing a perfectly good item for lack of small, misplaced part.

can't stop myself: Just stick with it.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Good point, Biagio. It would certainly be covered by the Electrical Code here, but I can't say for sure. Mine's only 40Watts. The P/N on mycord is Rythm RP-22 .looks very similar to the missing one.

Would this one work?

It says it's "universal"

I bought a Dewalt ( DWHT750928 ) temp gun, and their glue sticks from HD. I use it to stick parts to the router planer sled, works great. I also use white masking tape and place a strip on the sled and a strip in work piece. Place glue to a piece and stick to sled, There is no clean up. the gun was around $30.00. It also works great for holding table saw miter bars to new sled.

Will blue masking tape work too?
