HT1000 Heat Gun
The heat gun did the work like advertised.
The job was a lot easier with the heat gun and did it really quick.

Great product and price!
I was looking for a heat gun (to replace a hair dryer & low-flame heat torch) and after looking at a few choices, I know Wagner makes a quality product from past things I'd bought anyway from them. So it was no surprise this one worked well and seemed to be well constructed. When I use a heat gun, I normally only use it a few minutes at a time; I'm sure it'll do the job for longer use each time, but for me its perfect and I don't any see reason why it wouldn't stand up for long interval use. If it's a bit more in cost than other brands, I'd still go with Wagner.
Note: It has two heat settings by degrees assigned to each one; recommend that whatever work you do, that you check to ensure the heat settings are enough & not too much for the type of work you do (as with any heat gun)

I've worn-out three of the prior HT1000 Wagner heat gun and felt they served me well. I purchased a new Ht1000 3 months ago without realizing the nozzle style had changed. The new heat gun does not accomdate prior HT1000 'concentrator' & 'flare' nozzle attachments.Very disappointing and limits usage! Further, the new heat gun may be described as same power, but doesn't heat as well at the tip and leaks heat into the pistol handle and out through the seam - uncomfortable.
I will try competitive product

Works great for removing paint
I bought it to remove exterior chipped paint and it works great.
This is the only purpose I have used it for but I'm pleased with
it. I do suggest using the high setting and hold the tip about 4"
from the surface. Wait for the paint to blister ahead of your scraper and keep moving it ahead of the scraper.

Lived up to my expectations
I use this heat gun in my taxidermy business and it has done everything I've needed a heat gun to do.

Effective and convenient.
I use(d) the HT1000 Heat Gun for stripping off paint on musical instruments. It performed the job(s) fairly well on the high setting and heated up in a short time. While using the HT1000 for about 15-25 minutes (No breaks), the metal nozzle distorted to a pearl like finish (Burnt/tarnished in other words). From what I experienced, it has not affected the product in any way other than cosmetics. If you're looking for a heat gun for DIY jobs that won't burn a hole in your wallet, I recommend the HT1000.
