This tool has changed how I think about glue guns. My old glue gun got used about once every two years; this one gets used almost every day. I use it so much because it warms up quickly (you can start using it in less than a minute) and is very precise. In addition, it lives in my house rather than in the garage because it is so clean. No more drips! I haven’t used it for design or shop projects yet, but it’s earning its keep on incidental things–like gluing up a loose part on my running shoes, gluing the end caps on stool legs, plugging a leak in my snorkel, attaching a candle to a base, etc. It’s nice to just turn it on and use it without having to plug it in and wait.
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
