    Hot glue review

    Post  Unknown on Tue May 31, 2011 1:25 pm

    Do you need hot glue but don't want to pay $2-$4 for a pack of 12 tiny sticks?

    10 extra long hot glue sticks can be bought Here

    Shipping was very fast, a bit over a week and well worth it.

    The sticks were very sticky (haha) when I first opened them but they dried off after an hour.

    They work just as well as the expensive Kmart stuff but because of the length they bend when used in the hot glue gun.

    I highly recommend these as they are value for money.

    Are these sticks for the small glue gun sizes? or are they the big glue gun size?

    Can they be used in a low temp hot glue gun?

    I would think so, mine is just your average $2 gun and they work fine.

    Are they really stringy when heated?

    Not at all, the quality is amazing. I'm honestly shocked by how good theses are, at $3 I was expecting cheap junk but these are quite the opposite.

    Just worked out the price to total length on these and the glue sticks I use ( Dotty's craft shop brand) and mine are $1 cheaper for 100mm less. $2 for 27x100mm sticks compared to $3.08 for 10x280mm.

    How are these to use for those who havn't used Kmart hot glue? ie, bond strength, stringyness, sag etc

    Thanks for the info,

    I've made a few purchases from buyincoins before, so I may have to include some of these in a future order.

    Cheers,

    Bond strength is impressive, much better than the craft stuff I used before.

    The bend is annoying but manageable.

    As for stringiness I'm not totally sure what that means but it runs smoothly and cleanly.

    I like them and their cheaper than kmart. ($4 for 12 mini sticks)

    Stringyness - how much the glue strings when you remove the tip from where you are glueing (sp)

    Yeah less stringyness comes in good when you're doing stefans. Must try these gluesticks...

    To solve the bending problem, you could just grab a pair of cutters and snip them to a suitable size..

    Yeah, like Xeons said, I got a bunch of these a while ago and just cut them in half. Don't think mine were the same as these ones, I paid six bucks for eighteen x 280mm. They weren't as great quality as Chickenfeed ones. 25 x 100mm for $2.50 or something.

    Thats what i need. I had the worst darts on the weekend out of anyone. My darts were terribly uneven. Mine runs too hot, and its a big stanley glue gun, so will get a wee little one then.

    Dude, get one with variable temperatures. Then run it on low temp. Mine is a small one, but still runs too hot, burns foam.

    This is definitely a much better option than buying a packet of 12 small glue sticks for $5 (that's what I pay).
