SOURCE: Glue Gun Question

Gather the materials needed and place them on a flat surface near an electrical outlet. Examine the glue gun. Locate the metal rest. This is usually attached to the barrel of the gun and is shaped like a "W." Make sure it folds out and locks into place. Locate the trigger. This is just behind the barrel on the underneath side of the gun. It should be a solid piece of plastic shaped like a slice of pie. Just above the trigger, is the barrel loader. This is where the glue sticks go into the gun. Inside the barrel loader there is a smaller round piece of plastic. This is what actually pushes the glue stick through the barrel. Pull the trigger and watch the piece of plastic move with it. Pick up the electrical cord and examine it. Make sure the prongs are secure and not bent. Make sure the cord has no breaks in the outer lining and there are no frays at the base of the gun where the cord attaches. Plug the glue gun into the electrical outlet. Allow the gun to heat at least 15 minutes so it reaches operating temperature. When the gun has heated at least 15 minutes, insert a glue stick as far as it will go without forcing it. Now pull the trigger until a small drop of hot glue forms on the tip of the gun. Practice gluing on the paper plate. Pull the trigger until a ball of glue forms on the plate. Release the trigger and quickly press the tip of the gun down onto the surface of the plate and pull it to the side. This will break the glue and stop it from stringing out when you pull it away. Continue practicing until you get the right amount of glue you want for the object you imagine using. When you pull the gun away, there may be a small string but this will break off easily. When you have the perfect amount of glue and only a tiny string forming when you pull away, you are ready for your project.

SOURCE: Glue Gun Troubleshooting

1. Insert your wax stick into a standard sized glue gun. The fit may be tight. The more wax you use, the smoother the fit. 2. Use a second wax stick in the gun to help advance the first, if needed. 3. Heat the gun up to temperature. 4. Do a few test pulls on the gun to get a feel for the quantity of wax you would like to use with your seal. (Two good pulls of the trigger will produce a full seal for the larger sealing coins.) 5. Wait for 10-15 seconds, then press your seal firmly into the wax before it hardens. 6. Lift the seal slowly off the wax. If it comes away and the wax is still quite soft, wait a little longer before pressing the seal down.

Try using denatured alcohol from your local hdwe store along with a rag, comb, and even a toothpick . A test area would be my first idea; color fastness and while there is not much odor it may affect some people with allergies and respiratory problems. It will take some time but be careful not to saturate the carpet itself just the immediate area; the alcohol may breakdown adhesives bonding the carpet fibers to the backing or seaming tape on the underside.

SOURCE: I have a glue gun

When i push the handle on my glue gun no glue is coming out


The glue gun heats the glue and melts it. It is the only way it can come out since it is solid otherwise. If the gun is not getting hot enough the question is why and the answer must revolve around the heat. Is there an on/off switch that is not working right, is the gun getting hot? Is power actually getting into the glue gun? And finally has the heating element failed? It is a pretty simple devce so if it is a cheap one and just doesn't work the less aggravating and inexpensive solution, after seeing why it isn';t functioning, is to buy a replacement.

Need the instruction manual for a Stanley GR100 glue gun


I do not believe there is a manual. there are instructions on the package. Insert the glue stick and turn on the gun. When the glue melts and the trigger moves glue will come out the front tip. This model has 2 temperatures so if it delivers too fast or runny you can lower the temperature. You pull the trigger to push the glue stick into the heating element to melt the glue. It is pretty straight forward. As the glue stick is consumed you stick in another glue stick. I suggest testing on something before using on your project. Do be careful of the hot end. It will definitely burn you if you touch it and the glue coming out is nearly as hot as the metal.

Bought a glue gun to re cover my lamp. Unfortunatley there was no Instructions


Pretty basic to use. Insert glue stick from the rear, push it as far as it will go without forcing it, if there is room put another one behind it. turn on gun and wait til it gets hot. stand it on something that will not get damaged from the glue, a piece of cardboard for example, you should see glue start to drip through the tip. now press trigger (gently at first until glue is really hot) and glue will flow, the longer the gun is on the glue will be easier to get flowing. release trigger and glue will stop, (although a little will still come out) When there is room always place a glue stick behind one already in to help the continuous flow of glue. That's pretty much it really.

How to use glue gun


PLug it in and if there is a on/off swith turn it on. The gun's heating element will get hot. When it is hot enough to melt the glue stick you have put inside through the hole (that is glue stick sized and on your end) then the trigger will push the glue stcik into the hot metal melting and coming out the end so you can deliver it where you want to glue something. Beware of the heat. You absolutely can burn yourself touching the hot parts of the glue gun. Think how you would not touch the hot part of a steam iron... same problem.) That's pretty much it. Pull the trigger to push the glue stick though and add more sticks as you need them. And beware of the very hot nature of hte tool.

How do i insert glue stick in to my emhardt electric glue gun


Insert the glue stick into the back of the gun. After doing this plug in the gun and allow it to heat up. When the gun reaches the correct heat level you will be able to pull the trigger of the gun which will pull the stick into the gun. This will only happen if the gun is hot enough.

My Weller PSI100K Portasol soldering gun will not get hot at the tips, but it is producing heat at the vent holes?


It is supposed to produce heat there, it's the place where catalytic combustion takes place. If the tip doesn't heat up enough, it means that either the tip is not screwed properly into the housing, or there's not enough gas pressure. The catalytic mesh should be orange in color when heated properly.
Too low gas pressure may be a result of many things, like a malfunctioning valve (regulator and/or on/off),or clogging of the ceramic pressure reductor due to poor quality gas used, with high heavy fraction content.
