Darice: long thin tube shape, very hot, very LOUD and BLOWS strong. Pro: cheap, works well on large shrink bags.Cons: LOUD, Blows too strongly, making it difficult to use glitters, embossing powders. Even the cardstock items slide around too much with the wind generated by my Darice tool.
Ranger Heat it Tool: shaped like a small hair dryer, quiet, gentle. Pro: Quiet. Of the heating tools I have used, this is the quietest. Heats quickly and melts embossing powders and shrink plastic well. Does not generate a strong wind, only a gentle breath so glitters and papers do not fly. The shape of the unit is comfortable to hold. Con: Cost. More expensive than other heat tools I have used.
Like most heating tools (hair dryers, paint strippers, embossing tools, etc) the first couple times you use the tool it may smoke and make a burning smell. It is normal as the extra oil on the motor is burned off. Kinda smells a bit and may be a bit scary. But this stops. and from that point on the unit works as advertised. The Heat It tool is a joy to work with and worth the price.
I think this is a great embossing tool to own, though I'd still recommend having one of the standard style ones as well to really be able to utilize the best of both.
The only drawback is that it doesn't blow a lot of air, which is great for embossing and delicate projects, but I mainly use the heat gun to get paint to dry, and the little bursts of air that the Marvy Uchida one makes definitely help with the projects. So if you need a heat gun that blasts air as well as heat, and not just radiates heat, you might want to look at the different models.
But this is a great heat gun and I'm glad we've added it to our supplies. It's also good for kids- I always feel a little apprehensive with the old-school heat gun because the metal ring on the edge gets burning hot, and this one is much easier for small kids to use without getting burned- the shape and size is that of a hairdryer, so they intuitively know how to use it.
Save yourself the time, money and disappointment of buying a cheaper model and do yourself a favor by just getting this one.
Pros- It has a larger opening which heats a larger area.
It is SUPER QUIET
It gets hot immediately
It is light weight
It is comfortable to hold while drying
It has a good length cord
Cons- So far none.
I was hesitant to order and now I am super glad I did. Now I dry my layers in between coats and I am getting better results.
Thanks Ranger for making a quiet heat tool that works great!
