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.

put a towel over the glue and iron over the towl. the glue will melt and the towel will soak it up. That works for other things like crayons also.

SOURCE: I have a glue gun

SOURCE: I have a new Surebonder

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

How to remove pressed wood flooring that has been glues down?


Brenda, Have you tried heat.
It works for mobile phone glass screens that are glued down. Try a hair dryer it may not be hot enough worth a try. You may need a heat gun that they use for stripping paint but it may set the flooring on fire so be very careful.
I looked at another web site and steam was suggested. Maybe you could try using a wall paper removing device. You may be able to hire one from a hardware shop. The ones that steam the wall paper off walls.
You may just need to use boiling water in those drilled holes.

Note Water would only work if the glue used was water soluble.
if the glue is Polyurethane Glue then Acetone or denatured alcohol will dissolve the glue.

Tip

Keeping glue from getting stringy


Whenever I use a hot glue gun I had been getting that stringy glue sticky mess when I get to the end of my gluing. I have been experimenting with different methods for stopping this mess from happening.

The method that I have found to work best takes a bit of retraining. When you are done gluing instead of instinctively picking up with glue gun creating that stringy mess, you lift the tip up a little way away from the project and make a few small circles. Then the glue detaches from the gun and you are free from the mess and able to continue with your project without having to stop and clean up every time you pick up the glue gun.

What is the difference in temperature between low-heat and high-heat glue guns?


Low-temperature glue guns operate around 250 degrees Fahrenheit and are more suitable to gluing materials that can be damaged by higher heat, such as lace or cloth. High-Temperature glue guns operate around 380 degrees. Generally, the higher the temperature you use, the stronger the bond will be.

I have cleaned the toilet seat in hot water and the plastic glued stoppers for the seat have fallen off and the glue has become hard. Where do I get new stoppers from.


Hi seacenter30

Why buy new seat stoppers when all they need is just re-glueing.
Get yourself a cheap hot glue gun (HomeDepot,Lowes,WalMart,etc) and a couple of hot glue sticks and apply the hot glue to the rubber/plastic stoppers and hold them into position on the toilet seat lid till the glue sets, just takes about 20 seconds...
Then the toilet seat will be good to go again...pardon my pun...:-)
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Dewalt Glue Gun Warming Problem


Are you in the UK? The fuse in the plug might need replacing. I had the same problem with glue guns. It's not worth buying an expansive one. The cheap ones might take a bit longer to heat up but the last just as long if not longer. I can never tell when the element will go.

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.
