To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I LOVE this glue gun is better then my old one have for years. This turn faster and have control button do not drip so much like my old one. This one is lighter then my old one especially from someone who have joint problems.
There is nothing good about this product whatsoever. The first thing to note is the lack of a polarized plug. The second (and an important one) is the lack of holes or an indentation on the plug. The holes serve the purpose of holding the plug in the receptacle and prevent it from falling out. The unit never warmed up to even the minimum temperature. However, the handle/grip got VERY warm to the point where you could not hold it comfortably. The glue never flowed from the tip, but had no trouble dripping from the rear of the unit. Pass on this one and get something better.
After I got this glue-gun I started using it for all kinds of jobs that nails used to do. Wood trim, picture frames, lightweight wood boxes, making custom boxes for shipping and many other uses. The variable heat control is one I have not needed, but the extension tubes make the gun much more useful. Seems to be a quality item for a reasonable price, but upgrade to quality glue sticks as those with this set seem to be only marginal in strength.
NOTE: SEE CURRENT UPDATE AFTER ORIGINAL REVIEW. I like the fact that it has temperature control, but I have to keep a paperclip handy to dial mine up or down. It gets very hot & stays hot but it does take somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes to heat up. Its bigger than I expected but easy to get used to. Its also kind of tipsy. I need a glue gun stand. Multiple nozzle tips are included. The nozzle tips somewhat large and I end up using more glue than I'd like. I'm still trying to get a feel for that. At least it comes with extra long glue sticks to get you started. The length of the nozzles allows for better reach. If I could change the balance issue and the size of at least one of the nozzles for more precision it would be perfect for me. Overall I would definitely recommend. EDIT: SUDDENLY STOPPED WORKING A COUPLE OF OF DAYS AGO ON 01/11/21. POWER INDICATOR LIGHT FLICKERS BUT NO LONGER ATTAINS TEMPERATURE. NOT WORTH $30. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
This is a new purchase, so I can't speak to durability, but so far I like using it.
However I don't know if the temperature control or shutoffs work as designed, but I am a bit suspicious about the product claims. This glue gun features a TEMPERATURE INDICATOR LIGHT that is supposed to turn off when the glue gun reaches the dialed temperature setting, but the light on mine just stays ON, and never turns OFF.
I ordered this specifically for the 3 nozzles, it only came with one. There is not a way to change the temperature but it did heat up in a reasonable time. Easy to use, just plug in. The stand keeps moving but its mostly stable. The glue gun did arrive on time. Would give 4 stars if all 3 nozzles would have been sent.
Well I loved it at first. But it developed a short in the cord where it attaches to the gun and now it goes on and off if you move the cord. Didn’t last long so I tell everyone in my crafting group not to order it since it didn’t last but a short time. My cheaper one I’ve had for years is what I’m using again.
