Default Re: Secret to NOT burning myself with the glue gun?

I have given myself some pretty nasty 3rd degree burns since I started, especially with the wood burner. But I do have a little trick with fingertips, especially if you tend to wipe off excess glue with your fingers. I keep a jar of REALLY thick body lotion at my station and make sure my fingers stay "hydrated". If the hot glue sticks, for some reason it doesn't burn and also peels off like butter. Don't use too much that you're greasy, but enough that it works. HTH!
