Buyer's Guide to Hot Glue Guns and Sticks
Details on features and specifications to look for when purchasing a hot glue gun and glue sticks to use in it.
SIZE: Hot glue guns are available in large (or "mid-size") and small ("mini") sizes. Different glue sticks should be purchased depending upon the glue gun size. Large glue guns are often only slightly more expensive than mini glue guns, and more likely to have extra features.
HIGH OR ADJUSTABLE TEMPERATURE: The majority of glue gun models either operate at high temperature ("hot melt") or have a switch for adjusting the temperature from low to high. Adjustable temperature models are usually somewhat more expensive, and multi/dual-temperature sticks should be used with them. Some sticks are designed to only be used with high or low temperature.
LOW TEMPERATURE: Low temperature only guns are also available, but less common. The brand Adhesive Tech offers a low temperature model; according to the package, it is good for delicate materials and provides increased safety, probably because a lower temperature nozzle and glue are less likely to cause burns.
POWER: Be sure to confirm that the power cord is long enough for your work area. Some relatively expensive models are rechargeable; they can be charged on a base, then used without a cord. Units which can be powered by regular "AA" batteries are also available, but more expensive and somewhat hard to find.
NOZZLE: Most units have a single nozzle installed, some with a "no drip" feature. However, a few more expensive models (like Aleene's Ultimate Glue Gun; which has needle, flat, ribbon, and side-cut nozzles) offer interchangeable nozzles for different types of application.
GLUE STICK LENGTH: Mini glue guns are capable of accommodating four inch and shorter sticks, while a larger model is preferable for eight inch and ten inch sticks. Instructions warn against removing a stick after it has been inserted, so you cannot expect to switch between different stick types (temperature, color, etc.) before the current stick has been finished.
INCLUDED: Most glue guns include at least two glue sticks; a few include cases or other accessories. It is not uncommon to see units with 10, 20 or 50 sticks included, often not at much greater cost than a gun being sold without any.
Overall, the best glue gun to choose depends upon what materials you will be using, characteristics of your work area, and your budget. Hot glue guns and sticks are available at some office supply stores (like Staples), arts amp; crafts stores (Michaels), and internet auctions (eBay.com). They generally cost under $15, unless they have many extra features (interchangeable nozzles, adjustable temperature, etc.), in which case they can cost as much as $25.
