How to use a heat gun

As a crafter, there is a handful of tools that I use on a regular basis and would recommend that every crafter should have! One of those tools is a heat gun.

I have gotten many questions about the difference between a blow dryer and a heat gun. There are very few occasions that you could use a blow dryer instead of a heat gun and get the same results. The major difference between a blow dryer and a heat gun is the high temperature the heat gun can reach. A blow dryer typically only heats to 140 degrees (great for blow-drying hair) and a heat gun can heat up to over 1000 degrees. The Wagner FURNO 300 has two heat settings, 750 degrees, and 1100 degrees.

For most crafts and do it yourself projects higher heat and less air blowing is ideal making the heat gun a perfect solution. There are so many ways you can use the FURNO 300 to help create the perfect do it yourself project.
