Knowing this design error, I can only conclude that this tool is an electrical hazard waiting to happen. Avoid it and buy another brand. I see that the "yellow" tool brand sells one with a ceramic heater (which being non-conductive cannot short in the same fashion this tool did). I plan to buy it next time I am at the hardware store. I can only be thankful that I was using the gun this time, instead of one of my 14 and 12 year old daughters (who use it for crafts). If you have children who will use a hot glue gun, I recommend that you especially pass on this model. In fact, everyone should pass on this gun. If you take your eye off it while it is heating up and it develops a short, it could start a fire! No thanks... not for me or you.
This kit comes with 6 standard glue sticks and 6 "heavy duty" glue sticks. I couldn't really tell much difference between the 2 types, but I'm no expert on glue.
Two minor complaints which lead to my 4 star review: first the stand that folds out of the gun is extremely wobbly, and I end up always just setting it on its side as the stand won't keep it upright unless it's perfectly balanced. Secondly, the cord is a bit short for my liking. Combined with the wobbly stand, the short cord leaves this glue gun unsteady. Also a minor concern is the fact that when left sitting on the stand for a bit, the glue starts to drip out, though this kit comes with a nice silicon pad to put the gun on and catch any dribbles.
Overall, this is an inexpensive and perfectly adequate glue gun for small projects. It's minor flaws are excusable as they don't really harm its effectiveness as a tool.
Tonight I tried out the glue gun with the super strength sticks and within only minutes of holding the strips against the case they are glued on hard as can be! And the glue is what I wanted, something non-rigid so it could hold up to the various forces it would endure.
The whole kit is one gun, a rubber/plastic mat, 6 all purpose glue sticks and 6 super strength sticks. The gun has a little stand built onto the bottom under the nozzle so you can stand it up when you're done with it. I actually decided not to use the mat since when you place the gun down on its stand after a few minutes a little glob of glue will start dripping out. I figured I'd just have it drip all over a paper towel instead. I'm not sure if this is normal for glue guns but I'm guessing it is since that nozzle stays hot and all.
The only negative thing I have is that the gun is much bigger than I thought it would be. No big deal really, just surprising.
My son's first grade class was doing a collage project in class. Parents brought in their glue guns, and I brought in this one. Most of the others were smaller in size. Mine was the most used, hands down. This gun gets hotter, dispenses easier, dispenses more glue, retains more heat, and is easier to use than any of the other 8 guns we had available. It was so clearly favored that I spent the entire time at my son's class, running around to other parents and kids, gluing down their projects.
Another bit of advice: after you buy this gun, buy the long, 8" glue sticks. 4" sticks go too quickly. The longer ones mean less time taken to refill.
My only complaint is that it seems to ooze out a small amount of glue if you leave it plugged in for a long time. I suspect this is true of most hot glue guns though, and might be easily avoided by unplugging the unit between rounds of use.
