I have bought 2 of these and both of them have been great. I had to buy the second one because my first one was in storage & I couldn't live without it.

Wow cordless

Yes, mine is the Ad Tech from Wal-Mart also. At least I'm not the only one with issues with it!

I also have the adtech from Walmart. I kmeep it in a thick plastic canister on my table to keep the glue contained, but it leaks sooooo much! It's ridiculous< I think I loose more than I use . I need a new one but not sure which one to buy.

I was in the same boat. I had the world's worst glue gun - a Surebonder mini glue gun. It dripped more glue than I used. The other day it broke....wooo hoooo...so I went to Michael's and got a new one. The new one - an Ad Tech Project Pro hasn't dripped yet. I think it was $6.99.

I just bought a new one that I really like. It is called Surebonder. It has dual temperature settings. I got it at Michaels.

This is SO me! I think mine is getting worse too!! UGH Maybe it is time to invest in a new glue gun....mine is just the $1-$2 one...the dripping I can handle, but lately it has been leaving LOTS more glue webs and such....I would love one with a narrow nozzle too...

I've never found a glue gun that I love. But the one I have least issues with are the cheapos that I purchase at Joanns.

I love the mini Arrow one I have! It heats up super fast and has never ever dripped.It was also really inexpensive. This is the one:

I have two sizes of surebonder guns and they both leak. The one that uses the big glue sticks leaks very badly. The arrow brand looks nice. I might order that one.
