    I would like to say how impressed we are with both your product and service. We make rugs from pieces of carpet that we edge with a special binding that looks like rope. The glue gun with the long thin nozzle is ideal for this intricate work. Thank you again

    A pleasure to use, I actually look forward to picking up and using this tool. Flow rate is easily controlled and unlike cheaper guns there’s enough flow so you don’t end up trying to force the glue through the gun. A high flow rate is important if glueing larger pieces because as you know the bond strength weakens every second the glue is cooling. I used it with the Polypropylene glue sticks when glueing correx, and for this reason the extra 5 degrees of melt temperature was welcome. Warmup time is short, and it is accurate in use – with the standard nozzle I was able to waterproof the ends of 4mm correx, perfectly capping the tiny flutes!

    Purchased as replacement for tec 805 that was faulty but power adhesives say that there’s no fault after twice retuning when only three weeks old
    Tec 810 not a hint of trouble as it’s on all day long no just the 30-40 mins that is recommended
    Would recommend glugunsdirect to all business friends as there cheaper than going direct to power adhesives and you get a kilo of glue sticks free

    I ordered an 810 model gun on Wednesday and I was using it on Friday. Fast service and although this is my first glue gun, I recognize it is a quality tool. I use mine for wood turning, (temporary fix of timber to face plate) and the adhesion is amazing. I recommend this product.

    Having spent 40 years in the automotive trade as an auto-electrician and car audio installer this has to be the ‘daddy’ of all glue guns. I have purchased quite a few over the years and using it every day of the week I am quite particular on tool quality. This definately is the ‘M16’ of glue guns. Excellent bit of kit

    I purchased this gun in January 2012. I would estimate it has been switched on for less than 3 hours since then. The gun stopped working due to a faulty switch. You can prise out the switch easily enough, but Tec Bond have left one wire far too short for easy renewal (wires are soldered to switch). They have also filled most of the gun assembly screw heads with adhesive to prevent tampering. I do not know if a switch for repair is available, and if it is I did not want to replace it with one that seems likely to fail again. I have modified my switch and it now works well again. Other than this, the gun is very good and three stars seemed a little harsh.

    My Grandad bought me this for Christmas and I have to say I absolutely love it! To start with, it is easy to use and quick to heat up/ cool down. I use it mainly for crafts and customising garments but it is suitable for pretty much everything. It’s light-weight, really excellent quality and I will look forward to using it lots more in the future!

    great glue gun it seems to work well it lets the glue out slowly and can let it out fast with the trigger. the proof of how good it is will show after time , if its still works like this in two years time then I will be cuffed.

    I am a picture framer and I needed a glue gun for a project but was put off by the performance of ‘hobby’ grade guns that I had tried in the past. I decided to go for broke and bought the Tec 810. All I can say is that it is amazing. A completely different experience from my previous ones. I needed to fix some metal items to foam board and using the excellent glue selector I chose Tecbond 261 which does the job perfectly.

    OK I paid a bit more than I intended but this really works which will save me money in the long term. I can also think of a lot of other uses for this

    Well balanced and comfortable to use. Heats up quickly and doesn’t "drip". Tim will tell but initial experience is great

    Fantastic product. The tip doesn’t drip and it heats up and melts the sticks very quickly. Very low maintenance. Price is spot on and delivery was very quick and convenient. I haven’t tried using it for extended periods of time yet but I don’t see it going bad as it is well ventilated.

    after battling with glue guns in our warehouse over the last year, we have finally found a great supplier who delivered quickly and so far, after using for just over a week, we have faith that this glue gun will not break. it is very sturdy, well made and heats up quickly, I highly recommend and will, if need to, use again 🙂
