  • I agree that I shouldn’t complain about a $10 heat gun, but most heat guns have a fan-only mode to cool it down when you are done. This one doesn’t have that mode, so when you turn it off, it overheats and trips the thermal safety. I have to wait 20 minutes to turn it on again.
    Also, after 3 or 4 uses, mine won’t turn on at all, even after it cools off. I suspect its something related to the overheating. Like any self respecting techno-geek I’ll be disassembling it to figure out why, since its not worth sending back.

No public wish lists :(
