1) It feels sturdy and has a nice flat surface below the cord to keep it upright plus a one-finger release of the stand on the front
2) It has 2 temperature settings. I can see "low" being handy for arts and crafts, but for a good bond on plastic "high" is perfect. Once glued the sticks are really well bonded, unlike some of the cheaper models
3) Several glue tips are included, for different styles of work
4) A nice large trigger makes pushing the sticks through easy work
Some minor cons; the "anti drip" feature doesn't really work, you'll still get some dripping so make sure the tip is over something to catch the glue. On "high" it takes around 6 minutes to heat up, which is pretty long, but like I said before; hot glue bonds better.
All in all a very nice kit for a low price, save yourself the hassle of a bad glue gun and get this one. It'll last for years.
The features I was looking for were:
1) Stability - most glue guns have wimpy wire stands and easily tip over. The Dremel has a large, flat 'heel' and large plastic 'kick-stand' that keep the gun from tipping over. The stand locks into position against the body of the gun when not in use and is easily released with a push of a button. Also, the cord is well located and very flexible which contributes to the stability.
2) Drip-less - As others have mentioned, it is not 100% drip-less, but mine has very minimal dripping - less than others I've used. Also, it's important to read the instructions. The drip-less feature is only activated when the stand is in the down position. If you lay the gun on it's side with the stand up it will drip a lot - you have to put the stand down to decrease the flow of glue.
3) On/Off switch - This is the only glue gun I've found that has an on/off switch. It is nice not to have to pull the plug between uses.
4) Indicator lights. This is a nice touch.
Even though this is not a mini glue gun, it is light weight and very trim, making it very comfortable to handle. Plus there are three tips for different applications and they are very easy to change.
Oh...did I mention the price? I would have paid twice the amount for the quality this product offers - but happy I didn't have to!
Thanks Dremel for putting so much thought into the design of this glue gun!
It comes with different nozzles, has two heat settings, stands on it's own fine and the kickstand works well. A built in on switch so it doesn't have to be unplugged to shut if off is nice. It's got a work light, but I think it would have been better to position it over the glue coming out, rather than below it, unless you work with the side of the gun facing you. A red and green light tell you when the temp is optimal. Overall, I'm happy with the product.
The problem is that it takes way too long to heat up. When it does it drips glue all over the place. If this was an isolated incident it would be acceptible, but I bought two of these lemons for work. We hate to use them because of the dripping. I have to put a piece of cardboard under it to keep it from making a big mess.
I previously had Arrow Fastener glue guns. No light, no dual temp setting, just a simple glue gun and stand with a drip catcher. It didnt drip that much however. Too bad they got old and needed to be replaced.
I give it three stars because it heats up and glues. Whats with the light anyway? A lot of people glue in the dark and need a blue light?
