Default I hate my glue gun!

Ok, the glue gun I currently have stinks! It leaks so much glue that I end up having glue globs and glue webs everywhere on everything! My low temp glue gun never did this. Is it just mine or do you ladies have a good one that doesn't make such a mess!

I've had my glue fun for years. It's a brand called Aleen's. I bought it at Walmart years ago so don't know if they have it still. It was some kind of deluxe glue gun with different interchangeable tips and a storage case that holds it all and glue sticks to. It drips a very teeny bit when I first turn it on but not continuously.
The link I attached shows a newer model than mine. Mine doesn't have a removable cord. I got mine like 10 years ago and it still works great. Then again I haven't used it much until recently, but I think it's a good one.

I have the mini ad-tech as well, same problem with the dripping. I just got used to it though, can't be bothered buying a new one until this one dies and I find a miraculous no-drips-ever glue gun :P

I just bought a new Alena's Ultimate Glue Gun because my other glue gun bit the bullet. I HATE the new one...it leaks more glue than I use. The glue sticks are special ones with a much bigger diameter than the others. I'd take it back but I threw the outside packaging away. Bah!!!!

Do you have the reciept? Maybe you can take it back with just the receipt and tell them what a horrible product it is.

That's the one I have but a way older model and only leaks a drop in the beginning.

I have a 3M glue gun that gets the glue so hot it runs out like water. I finally broke down and bought one from Joann's. It is a Adtech 2 temp glue gun & it has a small tip on the end and it holds the big glue sticks. My favorite feature is that you can remove the cord for a bit and use it as a "cordless" gun. 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.

Yes, I do still have the receipt but never thought of taking it back without the packaging. I didn't think they'd let me. Thanks for the tip, though. I'll try it!
