Very fast gun – 130W Hot Melt Glue Gun (220V) Reviews

posted by SA007nl on 04/27/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- It heats up in about a minute, very fast.
- You can stuff impressive amounts of glue trough the device, almost continuously without problems.
- It has a very clearly visible lamp on the side and back of the gun, you can see if it is done heating easily.
Cons:
- The plastic halves of the devices don't fit together properly, it is sturdy but there is a small gap that looks strange.
- The range on the device goes from still-solid to smoking glue, be careful which value you use.
Other:
- For Netherlands and most of Europe you need a converter (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/flat-to-round-power-plug-convertor-3529) or similar or put a different plug on it to get it into the socket, but the device is 220V.
- Used 11mm glue sticks, not on DX but most local stores here have it. (But can be quite expensive at DIY stores, just go to the low-budget stores, quality doesn't really differ from the expensive brands)
Bottomline:
If you are looking for a new one, it is more than twice as expensive as sku 32421 but worth it. Even if you don't use it regularly.
Also: DX take 11mm glue sticks in your assortment.
