    I had 3 hot glue guns in the past and well, they're all dead, I am about to go buy a new one soon, but I want to know how do you guys maintain and look after yours?

    Were any of them good quality?

    Not having a dig at you, but I've not had to do any maintenance to my Dremel-branded hot glue gun. On the flip-side, my back-up ozito-branded glue gun only lasted a few months, and died...

    Cheers,

    Well, not sure on brand exactly but it was purchased at spotlight, they got like one version and 3 variants, first one something happened and I heard a pop and glue started leaking out the cracks, second one wouldn't heat and the third one just go jammed, my next one is going to be the ozito (because it's like $8 ATM), also how well does the Dremel brand preform? What size sticks and is it pricy?

    I didn't have much luck with the ozito, but for the price, it's definitely worth it. I'll be getting another one next time I'm in town.

    The dremel-branded glue gun retails for approx $45, and uses 11mm glue sticks. A bit pricey, but it's dual-temp, and high quality.

    But, alot depends on how much you'd utilise it, as to whether it's worth the cash investment.

    Cheers,

    Yes, the Dremel brand hot glue gun is all you will ever need. It takes the large stocks and is dual temp.

    I have the cheapo $7 from hot dollar, and well.. it's lasting.

    There's no temp control I just unplug it after a few minutes or so lol, so I guess the switch is in my brain.

    I have had three glue guns the past.

    The first was my dads and was a really good one, although larger than normal. However my older brother broke it...

    The second was a super cheap one from the two-dollar shop, and it lasted me a little over three months (I cant remember how it died...).

    The third was also one from the two dollar shop, although a little bit more expensive, and so far has lasted me over a year. However, I only use it for short periods of time as sometimes when it has been on for too long, the glue loaded starts to melt and jam the sliding bit. But this is easily fixed by only putting in a glue stick when you need it and taking it out when you don't ATM. Also, I'm using glue sticks from the two-dollar shop.

    I bought an Ozitio one today. It seems to go pretty good. They come with a 1 year warranty so if it dies before 1 year is up just take it back and get a new one.

    The ones at Spotlight are the cheapest ones you can find so I don't expect them to be any good. The Ozito should be fine though.

    I used a cheap $2 one to make all 1000 of my dart hire darts. It's still going strong. Why would you need to spend more than a few bucks on a hot glue gun?

    I guess some people just like to buy the quality brands because they have the cash for it.

    1000+ darts from a $2 glue gun? That's pretty awesome

    If it's jammed, you could try opening up the gun and cutting away the glue that's stopping the stick from feeding, that's what I do to mine.

    I have the large Ozito branded glue gun and it's worked very well for more than 6 months, however it gets seriously hot if left plugged in for more than a few minutes. At $12 bucks I can't complain but the next one will be a Dremmel if only for the safety of a quality built and temperature controlled product.

    I have a Ozito one, It was $15 from Bunnings and it can be cordless, so its a win overall.

    Wouldn't that mean it has a rechargeable battery? The gun needs to continue heating while being cordless so it seems like a bargain.

    Yes, It is cordless, First you plug it in for 5 minutes then you unplug it and you can use it for 15 minutes.

    Ah yes Luke, I have that one as well, I think. If so, the red rubber thing on the front ripped a bit, I'm not sure if that's dangerous.

    If it's anything like the dremel model, that rubber boot on the tip just acts as a guard against burning yourself on the tip. I've never used mine, so it's not overly dangerous. You just have to use a bit of common-sense...
