Dremel Glue Guns
While we're waiting very impatiently for the release of Dremel's new oscillating tool, the Dremel Multi-Max, we thought we'd tell you about three new glue guns that they're adding to their lineup. These new guns are stripped down versions of their existing gun, the 1200 which is for heavy duty work (it even has an LED). Each of the three has different features so it doesn't really matter what you do with a glue gun, you'll likely be able to find one of these four that matches your needs.
According to Dremel:
The only glue gun in the new line designed specifically to hold 7-millimeter glue sticks, the Dremel 1225 Glue Gun (20 watts) is perfect for light crafting projects like school assignments and decorating picture frames. It features a built-in stand and wide base to keep the glue gun upright and help to prevent the glue gun from tipping over while working on a project. It also offers an ergonomic handle for comfortable use and an anti-drip nozzle with silicon tip for protection from accidental burns. The suggested retail price is $5.99.
The Dremel 1230 Glue Gun (40 watts) offers a built-in stand, wide base, anti-drip nozzle with silicon tip plus a soft grip handle for extra comfort and control. It holds 11-millimeter diameter glue sticks and is ideal for home decorating projects and fixing broken household items. The suggested retail price is $9.99.
In addition to the features on the two previous models, the Dremel 1235 Glue Gun (60 watts) offers a textured soft grip handle, a dual temperature setting and power indicator LED light to clearly indicate when the tool is on and heating. This model holds 11-millimeter glue sticks. It is perfect for light DIY projects such as repairing a loose chair spindle or reattaching countertop laminate or cabinet veneer. The suggested retail price is $15.99.
The newest additions to the Dremel Glue Gun line join the brand's flagship model, the Dremel 1200 Glue Gun (80 watts), which offers all of the features on models 1225, 1230 and 1235 plus an LED work light, a light that indicates when the glue gun has reached optimal temperature and three changeable nozzles (one fine, one standard and one wide). This model holds 11-millimeter glue sticks. The suggested retail price is $24.99.
The best part is that they are all Dremel and that's likely to mean quality. But, like the Multi-Max, we're all going to have to wait until October.
