No, I haven't. Usually there is just one small drip on my pad. I have noticed that I don't use as many glue sticks as I have done with other guns. I keep the smallest tip on it and the flow is very controlled. The mechanism that you push is on the top side of the handle (I don't know if you can see the white handle in the picture) and fits between your hand and the gun so that you are pushing instead of pulling back toward your hand in order to squeeze the glue out. It seems as though it is not as tough on the hands. I will say however, that I had to get use to the small tip. It seemed like I had to push really hard at first, but now it doesn't seem that way to me - maybe I have it broken in or am just use to it now. I like this gun alot and really like using the small tip. This tips makes doing small, precise jobs (such as hair bows) easier for me. I don't have to worry as much about glue seeping out the sides! This gun can also be unplugged from the cord and used cordless (for a quick glue) if necessary.

One other thing - I had a time figuring out how to change the tip (a small tool comes with it in order to do this), but I think I was just having a moment - no problems now!
HTH.

Rene, how long is the odrd on the Aileen's glue gun?

Also, yes, Micheals has coupons, they come in the mail once a week to me. You can use your Joann's coupon there also. Sometimes I will tell her I forgot mine and she will whip one up for me... I go there a lot though, she remembers me because I being the dog with me.

I wish I could find something to make out of all those little glue balls, lol! I didn't know you could use a Joann coupon at Michaels.

Sarah - I am guessing you got on Michaels mailing list to get the coupons. I'll have to get on it. Thanks! (By the way - you did get signed up for your Hobby Lobby coupons, right? I know it isn't close to you, but you never know when a road trip might happen!)

I got this glue gun about 2 weeks ago, and let me tell you-- I am in love with it!! I didn't know a glue gun could make such a difference!! I thought the glue sticks were rather expensive, but when I see how much glue I am NOT wasting.... I can leave it plugged in all day and only have a small dollup of glue leak out-- not even dime size!! It took some getting used to with the handle being different, but now I love it and don't ever want to go back!! I even gave my husband my surebonder of rhim to take out to his shop!!!! THanks Rene for recommending this!!
