Numerous definitions but, elasticity measurement is probably applicable, here. I don't detect any stretch differences between the beige, green or blue. None are all that stretchy.

Lee Valley is selling a masking tape for holding glued parts together. I think it might have a little extra stretch. It's also not as brittle as most masking tapes are.

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.

Only if you use blue glue sticks. No it will work but is much more expense for something that goes in the trash in a few minutes. I used blue, then i looked at the big wad of tape in trash can and decided I needed a cheaper tape. I use 2 inch wide 1.5 inch wide and 1 inch wide tape depending on the application.

Well the bag for the power cord arrived yesterday from Amazon....unsealed and empty. Another call to Amazon to make. Somewhere in the US Postal system is a power cord wandering around looking for a home, lost and afraid. C'mon guys, seal the blasted bag. I called and told the rep I'd like to be able to return the cable and was informed it was easy. I informed her that was going to be far harder then she thinks because it had to be located first. I mean how many places could it be between Ky and Va? She started to see the picture shortly.

After informing her the bag made it totally unscathed but also unsealed she started to realize the true nature of the problem, big opening and no cable. She informed me the replacement would arrive on Monday but if you didn't get the first on how can it be a replacement? Thankfully this doesn't happen too often.

Thank you Gene, that's a new one on me. It reminds me of some years ago I and a late member would exchange posts using the biggest, most obscure words in the dictionary but making sense, sort of!

Before you buy that cord...Check the model number and make sure it will take 120 volts AC to operate. If it is made to run on a lower voltage you may fry the gun and be out the cost of the cord.

I actually have 2 hot glue guns. One with slim glue sticks I got for $1. The other was a gift, and I believe $ 5-6. I tested each, and they both seem to work just fine. Have had them for years. And have never had occasion to use either. I much prefer just using Titebond II, and glue-up jigs if need be.

My favorite glue gun is my Ryobi 18v cordless.
I use it all the time. Great if you're already using the Ryobi system.
