Thinking of buying a hot glue gun. With the glue sticks, once you use one, can you use the rest another day or is one stick a one use only thing? Thanks

Hi, you can use the stick over and over, it will only melt the amount you use.

As it's hot though, won't it melt plastic when you put it on?

Nope, its like 140*C, you need around 200*C to melt most plastic materials. More of that after leaving a gun it will cool down very quickly.

So hot glue or e6000 superglue for crafts to glue down a hdmi and usb connector to plastic?

You can stop and start using it no problem.
Bosch do a decent model. PKP 18 E - £19ish

E6000 pretty nasty stuff, wouldn't recommend unless you have gloves and a good extractor.
