    We bought this gun because of the new slim nozzle – we do a lot of craft and sequining.

    Like problems we’ve had before with TEC glueguns this gluegun is at too high a temperature and melts the plastic and sequins that it is used with…

    The nozzle is much better though, more accurate than guns ordered in the past…

    I ordered four of these guns for our school which seems to get through as many guns as the sticks they use. These guns look a quality product and we’ll be in a better position to judge in about three months. What encouraged me to place an order was the guarantee which comes with them. We have in the past had many types of glue gun at the school and not all packed up due to student activities, so a guarantee is attractive to a cash strapped school. Excellent service from this company, fast delivery and would recommend to anyone. Thanks, will review in about three months!

    Tec 305 is a super little gun, I use the low stick one for crafting, not to hot for what I do and it’s delicate work. I suggest Jenny should look at the low stick.

    I traded-in my Bosch PKP18 glue gun for a 305 low melt and it’s an excellent gun, the nozzle is fantastic for getting into small spaces, I use the LM44 glue and it’s not too hot for the materials I use and they are heat sensitive!

    Picked this up as I was sick of going through cheap £5 guns for project work.

    Aside from some minor issues with dripping – that seem to be more related to the composition of the glue rather than the gun itself – I’m very impressed with the quality of this bit of kit! Having a (backlit) power switch built into the handle is very useful as well, something the cheap guns usually don’t bother with.

    Well worth the investment if you’re after a well built, stable gun for hobbyist work!

    Service was really good, fast despatch – DPD predict so you get a next day delivery with an hour slot emailed to you. The only query I had was the packing; it was in a blister pack and padded envelope so the blister pack was really damaged although the gun seems fine. Still giving it 5 stars.

    Used the gun twice so far and even the standard glue has worked really well on my ABS model and the PCB fixing I have been doing.

    The stand works, heat up time is quick enough,the 2mm nozzle is a very good size, there is a little bit of glue that drips while standing but it is tiny (just put something under it)and the ability to adjust the quantity you get on each squeeze is useful.

    Service and delivery was very fast and efficient. The gun is well made and works well, and is easy to use and accurate thanks to the thin nozzle. I would definitely recommend the product and the company.
