Crafting is such a broad term. Both my girlfriend and I love crafting, though our projects are very different. However, sometimes we use the same tools. In this particular case, I would like to tell how I usually pick hot glue guns for crafting projects.
How did I choose hot glue guns for crafting?
As always, my criteria were quite straightforward: versatility, the temperature range, the availability of glue sticks and the tip size. I ought to say that the bigger tools are good for complicated, multipurpose tasks. While smaller glue guns (I’ve also reviewed them) should be applied for short projects, like crafting or art. If you aim for the occasional use, stick to the smaller gadgets.
Also, I need to mention the materials used for the work – aim for the versatile guns capable of gluing wood, metal, plastic, fabric due to the melting tech. These handheld devices are more powerful than you think, so do not neglect their power. I would also recommend looking for a budget-friendly model that is capable of pushing a large volume of glue.
