Since 1843, the Stanley Black & Decker company has been producing innovative tools and solutions to help builders, makers and explorers to get the job done. The brand is now famous all over the world for the highest quality of its tools and excellent customer support. And though this Black & Decker heat gun falls into the "budget" category, everything about it screams high quality. It stands stable on its end, the body never gets hot, and it doesn't smell nasty like it often happens with cheap models.
This simple 1750 W heat gun has just two temperature settings (460 or 600 degrees C) and two air flow levels (570 or 740 litres per minute), which is still quite enough for such basic applications as stripping paint, varnishes and adhesives, as well as loosening rusted/seized nuts or thawing frozen pipes. The only slight gripe is that it doesn't come with any attachments. However, that's the price for flawless operation and super ergonomic design. The unit is well-balanced and weighs just 600 grams, so it feels uber comfortable in the hand. Moreover, it comes with a built-in stand allowing for its hands-free use. So, if you need a simple yet very comfortable heat gun from a well-known brand, we'd definitely recommend you to take a closer look at the Black+Decker KX1650-GB.
What Is a Heat Gun?
While its name may seem pretty self-explanatory, there is a bit more to knowing what a heat gun is and when you can use it for craft purposes. This small tool is akin to a hair dryer in that it uses hot air to work but the temperatures are, of course, incomparable. A heavy-duty model will easily reach up to 650°C and above, which means you shouldn’t be using one of these on your locks any time soon. Instead, you can take advantage of this device’s power to strip paint, shrink wrap materials, weld plastic, thaw frozen objects (just make sure they won’t be melted by the hot air), and even dry out paint and glue.
Using such a tool requires caution, of course, as the electric device easily reaches temperatures that are dangerous to humans. Thankfully, the sleek design of these tools helps practice caution as the heat gun resembles, well, a gun. You can hold onto the handle and trigger while you work and, if your model is well-made without any faults, the body itself shouldn’t get too hot either. It might still be prudent to wear a pair of gloves for protection though.
