Default My best friend (aka my glue gun) bit the dust

Please help!

My glue gun is dead...and I am so upset! I have had this glue gun a looong time and it has a fine tip which I can't live without! I bought another one for 6 dollars after searching high and low for a replacement. It is TERRIBLE! Where can I get a really good glue gun? I'm in Canada now and my old one came from Hobby Lobby which we don't have.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

They don't.

I'm thinking about getting the Arleene's one from Michaels. Anyone like that gun?

Yeah I have that one its good. I wish it got a little bit hotter (will still burn my fingers but I like my glue guns HOT). I use it with the fine tip and its gets in between the sides of clips perfectly. HTH

Thanks! I'm thinking that one is my best option. My DH said to get that one and I should've listened to him!

i hate to contradict . . . but i don't like the aleene's one for the reason stated - it doesn't get hot enough! . . . . it's sitting in a closet somewhere.

Hey LCMays did you ever get a new glue gun ? If not let me know which one you'd like from HL and I pick it up and mail to you. ( I just recently bought a new one and I know what you mean.)

Hey, thanks for asking! I bought one from Michaels that was super cheap and it stinks! Then I bought one from Wal-Mart that pretty much stinks too. So, I bought the expensive one from Michales and the tip broke off when I tried to change the tip (to the tip I really wanted in the first place!!!!!) and so I was using a super old cheap gun I found in the bottom drawer from when I used to teach. Well, yesterday it was leaking glue like crazy so now I am back to the cheap-o one from Wal-Mart that I still hadn't taken back. So, I think I am ok for now, but I REALLY appreciate the help! Who knew glue guns could be so hard to replace. I hate to throw away my old "bff"....we had such a good run together!
