Worx Power Share Hot Glue Gun is Good For Home Repairs, Crafting

For those who love to be handy around the house or who are into crafting, Worx has introduced its new 20V Power Share full-size hot glue gun, which reaches 392ºF (200ºC) in up to three minutes. The versatile hot glue gun can be used on a variety of materials including wood, metal, plastic, and ceramics.

The Worx 20V Hot Glue Gun uses standard full-size 11mm (7/16 in. diameter) glue sticks, which are widely available through hardware stores, home centres, discount and craft/hobby stores, and other outlets. A variety of hot glue sticks are available to match the application.

“Hot glue guns have been around a long time,” says Katie Roberts, Worx Senior Product Manager. “Ours is different versus the conventional glue gun since its body is similar to a cordless drill for sure handling and control. The 20V battery adds portability, as well as a solid footing for the tool to stand upright on its own.”

The glue from hot glue guns bonds quickly. In woodworking, typical uses include adhering joints, such as those in cabinets, drawers, picture frames and glue-up panels before planning. In metal, it’s connecting pipe, bonding sheet metal and other applications. Hot glue gun sticks also work well when working with plastics. In ceramics, they’re effective in fixing a broken vase, pottery, a coffee or tea cup’s handle. Hot glue guns also manage basic home repairs, toys, eye glass frames, and other repairs. The tool is also essential in many arts and crafts projects.

At the top of the hot glue gun is an on/off power button and a heat indicator light. The 2.0Ah battery slides into the base of the tool and also serves as a steady platform, which stands the tool upright.

The hot glue gun’s 11mm glue sticks are advanced through the glue stick chamber at the end of the gun. Only use 11mm size glue sticks and not the minis, which also are available. The nozzle’s collar 1/8 in. (3mm) diameter and this is where the hot glue exits the tool.
