First of all let me advise you on practicing a bit with this glue gun before using it on something that needs to be perfect. It doesn't offer a second chance or a re-do. This stuff grabs and doesn't let go. Secondly, less is better than more. If you apply too much adhesive to lets say, a piece of finished cabinet crown, you will never get the joint to push together nice and tight. That's about all I can say about this tool other than it's well worth the money if used correctly. I use it primarily for stair fittings (hand rail) and finished cabinet crown. If I misplace this product or it gets stolen tomorrow I will order another one from Amazon immediately. Highly recommend.
As suggested by another reviewer, I remove the tube after squeezing out an inch of adhesive and capping it. I store the tubes in the freezer in a vacuum sealed jar. Oh, and customer service by Franklin international is awesome.
Edit: After a using it for over a year, I am more aware of the limitations at home and in my beginners woodshop. It did not replace the pocket screws or the dowelmax, but complements them. It is unbelievable when I have 2 clean surfaces to be joined with enough flat surface area to hold. These are critical factors to remember.
The short set time for the 30 and 75 glues, though, means I have to get things aligned perfectly and very quickly--which as a novice woodworker is almost never! I just assembled a downdraft sanding box trying the 300 (5 min set time) which worked better for me on this kind of project. A more skilled person would use it for even more things. the biggest advantage is not having to wait overnight for the glue to set before moving on with a project. You are supposed to wait 24 hours before "stressing" it but it is strong enough to sand or whatever within 15 minutes.
I just used a tube of the 75 (partially used) and a new tube of the 300 that had been stored in my freezer and almost 1 1/2 years past the expiration date. Very good product IMO.
All 3 of the glue packages shipped with the gun were LONG out of date. The "use before" dates were all from 12 to 18 months out of date.
No where in the advertising was I made aware that the glue had a short shelf life of up to 90 days after it was removed from the package. No where did it state that the glue shelf life was only a year if left sealed. Normal hot glue stores for years.
I use Titebond glue almost exclusively in my shop with outstanding results. I thought a product with their name on it would meet up to their nomally high standards.
