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.

How does a glue gun work?


A hot glue gun is a very useful tool for joining modelling materials and even more substantial materials can be fixed together with it. 'Sticks' of solid glue are pushed into the back of the gun, the trigger is pressed pushing the glue stick forward and molten glue comes out of the nozzle. The glue is manufactured from thermoplastics.

*Jammed Glue in Entry way* HELP!


You can try heating up the entry way of the glue gun where the glue is jammed using a lighter or a candle (keeping the flame at a close distance, but not touching the glue stick) until it melts enough to slide out the back.

I have a new Surebonder rechargeable glue gun. I was gluing a large pc. and rushed to get another stick and it would not feed by pulling the trigger, There was one glue stick (partial) still in gun, but...


it sound like the charge ran down, recharable glue guns are not typically recomended for large project becuase heating elements run down batteries very quickly. to get the stick out of your gun, you will need to fully charge it and then after that turn it on and when its warm pull the trigger and the glue should once again come out, For large project I would recommend you purchase a wired (plug in the wall) type glue gun. Thanks for you question

Arrow TR 550 heats up fine but glue stick won't feed by the trigger. If I push the stick with my hand glue does come out, but the trigger seems to "slip" on the glue stick. Any ideas?


The trigger probably really is slipping on the glue stick. If you've changed the type or size of glue recently, try changing back to what you were using, or just something else. Maybe the glue stick is too small, or too slippery for the gun. If not that, then it's a mechanical problem. There are some screws on the side of the gun. With it unplugged and cool, take them out and open the case. It might be stuck together with some internal connections as well as the screws, but jamming a flathead screwdriver in them can usually wedge them apart. With the gun open, move the trigger and look for the parts that move with it in the area where the glue stick goes. If you can find something to attach to these parts to make them just a tiny bit longer, do that. The parts that grip the glue have probably worn down or just don't fit, and the fact that you can tell the trigger is slipping means that it's probably very close to grabbing, but not quite close enough. Any little extension to the grabbing parts should do, but be careful not to block the path of the glue.

Can't get glue stick into gun


Hello,
Plug it into wall outlet and let it become hot (without plugin any glue into ) about an hour..
When it gets hotter the molded glue in the back channel/barrel of the gun will be melted and back side will be freed to accept a new glue stick.
My regards

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.

Master mechanic glue gun 207 stopped working


Try cleaning the glue stick slot out with acetone (nail polish remover) and a paper towel, or cue tips if you have to get into a small area. that should help to break down any dried glue that may be blocking a new stick from feeding in, or may be blocking the heating element

I can' get the glue stick out of the glue gun


No need for concern. Just leave it there and then the next time you use it push a new one in as needed.
I haven't met a glue gun yet where you can take out the last remnants of glue stick.
If you prefer to remove it try this:
take a paper clip and straighten it (any thin,metal object will work) Heat the glue gun,unplug it,and then heat the end of the paper clip with a lighter/candle.
Insert it into the end that you load from,sticking it into the glue stick. Wait a short time and then pull the paper clip out. The glue stick should come out with it.
I find it easier to leave the glue stick in as I said,but it's your choice.

Glue Gun Support


Plug the glue gun into an electrical outlet. Make sure it is placed in a secure place, away from flammable items. As the glue gun heats up, a little bit of glue might drip from the end so you won’t want to leave it on a wood table or on carpet. Insert a glue stick into the back of the glue gun. If the glue gun already has a glue stick in the chamber, keep a second one in reserve nearby. Gather the materials you want to glue together. Hot glue works exceptionally well on thick fabrics, dried flowers, Styrofoam, wood and plastics. Since it leaves a thicker residue, it is not the best choice for thin papers, fabrics and ceramics. Check to see if the glue in the gun has melted by squeezing the trigger slightly and touching the tip to a test piece of paper. If the glue comes out easily, the glue gun has heated up fully. If the trigger is hard to pull, wait a minute more for the gun to heat more completely. Pick up the glue gun and squeeze the trigger slightly while you draw a thin line on one side of the item to be glued. Immediately place the other object to be glued on the glue line, pressing firmly. Hold the two pieces together for about 15 seconds. Test to see if the item still holds when you remove one hand. Let the item set for a few minutes in order to “cure.” Once the glue has dried fully, use a fingernail to scrape away any of the excess glue.
