  • Hi all,

    I've just finished watching the hot glue gun segment of Shop Tips!

    After checking how much those two glue guns are, is there a decent sub $40.00 runner up per gun?

    FYI I was just at a craft store and they had a $3.00 glue gun. That scares me.


  • For 20-30 bucks you'll have an excellent glue gun. As far as i know, the more expensive ones "drip" less and might be more controllable/consistant.

    I've been using 20-30 bucks hot glue guns (Bison) for years and it works like it should. I wouldn't go for the 3 dollar ones though haha.

    Are there no hardware stores around where you can pick one up?

  • @Lumor: Thanks.

    I was at a Michael's and spent the 3 bucks for the low temp one. You know, I would have spent two more dollars for two more inches in the handle.

    After checking the link, the two guns that are listed are about 200 bucks.
