Just get a new machine and quit being a cheap ***... the only thing that i can think of is it's a bad connection or a short between the contact screw harness (the bar that aligns and holds the contact screw) and the frame of the machine. the cheap machines use brittle plastic insulators and will eventually give way and cause a short. that and you may just have your voltage too high.

Sounds like you fried your coils or at least one of them if one loses any amount of power the other dominates i would buy either a new gun or a replacement coil kit

I have 96 monte carlo 3.1. Car feels like it is running great at

Coils usually breakdown under load(accelleration). A sticky valve of lifter is easy to check with a vacuum guage hooked up to the manifold. It will show a steady needle at idle if ok but the needle will bounce if the valve sticks. Does not sound like a coil.

I need to glue twopieces of cardboard in a v shape to use for pleating material which then has to go into a steamer so the cardboard must stay together

You can use many different types of hot glue guns and sticks to create a "Fiber Tear" meaning the cardboard will rip before the glue bond fails. has a great selection of craft & industrial guns as well as glue sticks. Try the Tough Guy glue sticks, strongest product on the market bar none -

My glue gun doesn't heat up the glue stick.

Is the light on? The problem may be electrical, you can try plugging it into a different outlet. Try one that you are sure is working (ie unplug something that is already working and try the glue gun there). If it is getting power, there must be a problem with the interior heating coil, in which case you will have to unscrew the casing and replace some parts

How can i make my hitachi roof nailer shoot faster

I have seen roofers that can make the gun sound like machine gun. What they do is fine tune the adjustment on the safety foot up or down and slide the gun against the roofing material while bouncing the gun slightly instead of lifting the gun off the work while pulling the trigger. The safety foot should be pushed against work while sliding the gun from one side to the shingle to the other. The firing takes place when the gun is push down slightly, so that means that the adjustment has to be so the gun does not fire until you press down the final 1/16 to an inch or so. This action wears out the nose however due to rubbing against the shingle. One must balance the faster wear of the nose against greater productivity.

Dragonhawk tattoo gun

Not really my area of expertise.

But I bet I'm more qualified than most people.
(Mechanic, machinist, fabricator, welder, computer geek, etc)

Looking at the Dragonhawk Tattoo Gun shown in this example,

,I see the gun works with Solenoids.
The coil is energized with electricity, and pulls the iron cylinder core back, and forth.
This cylinder then hits a flat metal bar, and the bar is connected to the tattoo needle. (Through the various mechanism)

A) Your power adapter is an AC adapter. It converts the AC voltages from your home, or business, into low DC Voltage.

First thing to check is that it IS delivering power.
LED light lit up on the AC adapter means it is GETTING power, but we do not know if it is delivering power to the gun.

A multimeter is used to check.
Now wait a minute...............
An inexpensive multimeter can be purchased for as little as $5 to $12, if you do not have access to one.
Available in a multitude of stores.

An auto parts store is but one example.
I have seen them on checkout aisle racks, at major discount stores.

Looking at the AC adapter, what style of plug does it have, for connecting to the gun?
I need to find out what the Positive connection is, and the Negative connection.

The multimeter Function Knob is set to DC Voltage.
If just a symbol, the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line.

[IF there is more than one DC Voltage scale, set it to the 0 - 50 Volts scale.
0 to 50 Volts DC ]

The Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter, touches the Positive connection, of the plug that connects into the gun.
The Negative (Black) probe lead touches the Negative connection, of the plug that plugs into the gun.

Voltage is read. Don't know what the voltage is, but YOU will.
Look at the AC adapter's label.
Input: 100 ~ 240 Volts / AC 50 ~ 60Hz

We need -> Output: xxVDC @ xxA

(xxVDC is how many DC Volts.
Let's use 12 as an example.

xxA is how much Amperage.
Let's use 3.67A as an example
3.67Amp's, or 3.67 Amperes. Same/same)

AC adapter is putting out the required voltage?
Then the switch is checked next.

Check switch for continuity.

[ Check with multimeter set to OHM's. 1K.
NO AC adapter connected to gun.

Positive ( Red) probe lead to one side of switch.
Negative (Black) probe lead to the other side of the switch.
Turn the switch to on.

If the switch is good you will get a reading on the multimeter.
DOES NOT matter at this point what the reading is.
Just matters that you DO get a reading ]

Switch is good?
Then there is a problem with one of those coils, going around the cylindrical metal bar. Perhaps a wire going to them is broken off.
Or wires in the coil have burnt.

There is a set screw for adjusting how far the vibrating metal bar, is away from the cylindrical metal bar.
Determines the distance of the flat vibrating metal bar, to the cylindrical metal core in the coil.

If this has been adjusted too tight, the flat metal bar won't vibrate.
Doubt this is the problem, or you would have stated the gun 'Hums', but won't vibrate.

[The black cylindrical things are coils. The shiny cylindrical metal objects inside them are the vibrating cores ]

I suspect the AC adapter isn't putting out any power, or the switch on the gun is bad.

Post back in a Comment, about the design of the plug from AC adapter, that plugs into the gun.

Go up to a perk machine which you DO NOT HAVE!
Set down your bouncing betty, And as soon as the counter ( showing how many bouncing bettys are left)
goes to zero, hold X ( or [] for Playstation Three )
you will have no gun in your hands, go find a gun you want, or spin the box, and buy it
