Using fine nozzles: Nozzles with a reduced orifice (less than the standard 2mm orifice) need to be used with care. You cannot force glue out of these nozzles, they are designed for delicate, precision gluing and applying a fine amount of glue. If you need glue fast, stay with the standard 2mm orifice nozzle !
Use Gard EV60 or Melt-o-Clean to clean the nozzle and glue gun.
