Tacwise Semi-Professional 202 Hot Melt Glue Gun : Best glue gun we have had

Very nice little tool and well made compared to others we have used. Glue flows nicely and don’t get clogged and overheat. Useful little light to tell you when tool is on and comes with a good stand as well.

Does what it says on the tin.

Lots of us doing window display so we are using a number of these glue guns and this tacwise one is the best we have had. A lot of these products dribble blue out when they are left standing waiting to be used which is very anoying but no problem with this model. Cable seems longer than the others as well which comes in handy as we don’t have to use the extension so often. Also use the tacwise glue which works well on all sorts of materials and again better than some of the cheap ones we have got before which just don not hold properly and take ages to dry.

Its an okay glue gun, certainly not the best. It has a good cable length and feeds the bigger size glue sticks instead of those dinky ones. Kinda has a problem feeding the glue stick sometimes due to its design but not a major problem. I’ve had this gun twice and for a long time and my biggest complaint is the nozzle. Is less cone shaped and more cylinder shape which sounds like a negligible point but really makes it difficult when trying to get precise gluing. Also, on the first one i had the head of the gun fell off and my second one was seeming to follow the same route so that may be something to consider.

A good purchase delivered on time.

Tacwise Semi-Professional 202 Hot Melt Glue Gun : Great product used it a few times now no complaints.

This gun has been used continuously in college and it only drips a bit if you leave it on its easy to use and the glue sticks themselves last for ages in fact i thought it was so good i bought another one for home use.

Disappointed in the size i thought for the price it would have been bigger, i could have got one the same size locally for a lot less.

Good item here, it works well, with useful on/off switch on handle. Heats quickly and is robust and easy to use. I use it for all sorts of jobs and the general purpose glue sticks seem to do for all jobs.

I am thinking of buying one of these – the description neglects to say the wattage – so does the manufacturer’s web site – research tells me it’s a 40w machine.

The gun heats the glue well and i like the trigger as it means you don’t have to cut the long sticks as you would with the gun that you have to push the stick in with your thumb.

After trying various glue guns, we thought we’d give this one a try. Good trigger action as the glue seems to go through steady and easily. Nice to have an ‘on off’ switch which means that once up to maximum heat, you can switch it off and carry one for some time, saves electricity, especially if you are using it for repeated craft work. One downside, it dribbles once on its stand, but i found if you lay it on it’s side it, it reduces that problem. At the moment the trigger action has not diminished as with other brands and feeds glue sticks well.

One thought on “Tacwise Semi-Professional 202 Hot Melt Glue Gun : Best glue gun we have had

  1. It does work brilliantly and will stick virtually anything but if you get the glue on your skin it can leave a nasty burn. I was very surprised it was recommended for schools. I am 62 am well aware that hot glue hurts but when i burnt myself i was shocked at how bad the burn was. So use it by all means but do be very careful.
