It's late at night you HAVE to get a project finished for a customer the next day. All the shops are closed. You NEED some hot glue & have run out. There IS a tiny piece of hot glue stick left in the gun but you just can't get it out what do you do?
The answer is simple.
Take a pencil or piece of dowl that fits comfortably in the end of the glue gun where the glue stick fits in.
Gently push in the pencil/dowl just as you would a new glue stick.
Now you can cary on for a few more moments getting that last piece of hot glue to finish up at bit more if not all what you needed to do.
It's as easy as that.
DOING THIS MAY INVALIDATE ANY CURRENT WARRENTEES ON GLUE GUNS RECENTLY PURCHASED. THIS MAY ALSO CAUSE IRREPAIRABLE DAMAGE TO THE GLUE GUN WHICH 'COULD' LEAD TO SOME ONE SUFFERING AN INJURY. GLUE GUNS BURN BADLY. THIS TIP IS SOMETHING 'I' DO OFTEN & HAVE NEVER SUFFERED INJURY OR DAMAGED A GLUE GUN TO DATE. I AM HOW EVER 'NOT' STATING THIS SHOULD BE DONE BY RECCOMENDING IT AS A COMMON PRACTICE BY ANYONE READING THIS BLOG OR THIS POST IN PARTICULAR. ANYONE CARRYING OUT THIS TIP DOES SO UNDER THEY'RE OWN MIND & ACTIONS & THEREFORE SUFFER 'ANY' CONCIQUENCES THAT MAY OCCURE UNDER THEY'RE OWN ACTIONS - NOT MINE.
