Packs of 14 Uhu hot melt glue sticks 7mm diameter 59p.

Not bad considering the current £7.99 glue gun offer at Lidl with packs of 32 glue sticks being £2.49 (although that one is a bit bigger and the sticks are bigger).

Wow, I'll definitely get in and get some of the sticks at that price. I've been slicing bits off the big sticks and pushing them in because I've got loads. With glue guns you always end up with nothing coming out for ages then BOSH. Fingerprints captured forever in cooling gobbets of molten goo.

The Lidl one isn't just bigger, the important thing is it gets a lot hotter and will stick a lot more things together and a lot stronger joint with it, these small ones aren't a lot better than a Pritt stick. With these ones the glue can often cool and start to harden before you've got the pieces where you want them.

Lidl have some suggestions for theirs on this video http://www.lidl.co.uk/cps/rde/xchg/lidl_uk/hs.xsl/index_14923.htm

Itzgary, you must have a faulty one, take it back. Got mine about nine years ago and it's still working well.

They do take a while to heat up to full temp but once there they'll stick just about anything, these little ones really aren't useful for anything more than arts and crafts, lot safer though as you can't really burn yourself with it, you don't want to be touching fresh glue from the big ones!

Some things suggested are not really suitable. I wouldn't use it for repairing ceramics or for grouting There are more permanent/better solutions. It's really most suitable for adding decorations to clothing or paper. But children should be carefully supervised if using it as the hot glue can burn. Also you need to hold the thing you are gluing in position until the glue cools, so that can be a problem if for instance you are gluing an electrical wire to a skirting board where it doesn't naturally stay in the right place. The 'glue' is actually polythene (a flexible plastic) so when 'set' it's still flexible.

I guess Lidl are trying the JML this small thing will do everything possible in the whole wide world, please buy it :D

I tried mine out and am happy with it to not rush out and buy the lidl one. But if I had a more serious project then I might come unstuck :D

really HOT.

dunno what it is with our store, they never have anything thats posted here :(
#11
No home bargain stores anywhere near here. That's a shame as I really need a hot glue gun right now!

A random use that was suggested to me is attaching grip rods along the edges of a concrete floor when laying a carpet. The nails won't go into the concrete, but a hot glue gun will stick it I was told.

Don't mean to harp on but that's exactly the sort of job these small ones will fail on as the glue will cool so quickly you won't be able to push the rod down flat before it sets so it won't make a strong joint.

There's nothing wrong with the one posted, and it's a bargain for the price, just don't expect it to do too much.

A good point. Just to add the packing recommends preheating cold surfaces so they don't cool the glue down when you apply it. Much easier if the glue comes out much hotter though.

I have never before read such rubbish.

I ended up buying the Loctite glue gun for £10 from B&Q (no Home Bargains near me).
#20
I have since use the gun a bit more and can confirm fresh hot glue on fingers = ouch :D

Just picked one up in Derby, and some extra sticks. Will be handy to have in the garage!
