I'm curious about this too. I heard the same thing about a woodburner.

I don't think my hot glue gun would work because the tip is covered in glue . I think if anything gets hot enough, you could press a hotfix with it & the glue on the back of it would melt.

So I guess the question is... how clean is the metal tip of your glue gun?

i thought what i heard was that you just by a little hot temp glue gun and just dont put glue in it. like i guess just plug it in and use it without glue so the tipe doesnt get nasty.

I did. I took taytaycrys extra tip and it fit in my woodburner.



She's going to kill me, but I can't find the tip now. I'm sure a kid took off with it.

I didn't use the hotfix tip. I used the petal shaped tip for the woodburner and it worked for me I did use the chisel shaped one to, but didn't like it as it was hard to keep it on there
