Hot Glue and Cold Glue

I see that Tim is using hot glue quite a bit now and it prompted me to get my glue guns out of "archive".   Wink

I have a hot glue gun and a cold glue gun and I don't know when to use which.  Does it make any difference if you use the cold glue gun instead of the hot glue gun?

Hope somebody can help me here as it seems such a shame not to be using the tools one has to hand.

well I know you can't use the hot glue on things that melt! And I think it has a stronger bond then the cold one. Haventt used mine either for ages (wonder where they are?) You could look at the packing on them in a shop to see what it says
Mickie

Thanks Vonny - will look out for them in the shops and read the packaging.   Think I might write "Don't use with items that melt" on the hot gun.   Laughing

I have a cordless one the batteries run out so quickly although I have trouble it goes off very quickly and I can be abit on the slow side  Laughing so quite often they don't stick together.

Glad you told us Becky as I was wondering whether or not to go for a cordless one.  Both mine are corded and the only socket I have spare is on the other side of the room Rolling Eyes   I shall just have to remember to unplug as soon as I have finished with it...........................maybe I should have said "try to remember...." Laughing

I am now picturing your craft room with loads of little notes stuck everywhere reminding you to do things  Laughing

I have just gone out and brought a new hot glue gun but I am lucky I have a socket near me why don't you but a extension Mickie so you can have one near you  Smile

I thought I would go and try Terry's hot glue gun.  It is just a normal craftsize one although he uses it for his woodwork.  But I just got in a horrendous mess with it, in fact I nearly managed to stick my jumper to the table.  Looks like it is not for me  Laughing
Mickie

My craft room runs on trailing sockets as it is Becky not sure I should add another.  Will just have to be disciplined when using hot glue gun.  Hmmmmmm, what? me? Rolling Eyes

Sorry you got in a mess with it Jennie.  I do find that gluing some things with the HGG is better than using silicone glue.  Perhaps you should try again with the experience of hindsight. Wink
