Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patriots Makita heat gun
I used this to heat my sound deadening material for a door panels. It worked great. The variable settings on top allowed a more custom heat setting so you don't cook your project. The numbers on the top come with a chart to aid in the correct setting. The two speed trigger comes in handy for sensitive heat prone projects like leather.

I can see I will be using this heat gun for a lot of projects to strip paint and in my art projects.
I like that it can free which can allow for hands free use.
It heats up really quickly!
I would note, it's a good idea to get gloves that are made to protect your hands from the heat. I used a thin pair of work gloves and OUCH....it got hot to the touch through the gloves. I was melting candle wax from all of my candle sticks to clean them up, it was so easy with this heat gun but the metal candle sticks got hot hot hot very quickly!
My next use is for a art project that I am painting and I can use this gun to quick dry paint rather than wait for it to air dry before applying the next layer. Very cool!

Makita 12-Amp Heat Gun (Model # HG551V) heats up quickly and stays very very hot. It is very easy to use. It allows you to adjust blower speed and set the temperature you desire. I definitely recommend using gloves when handling this heat gun. I have used it for multiple projects and so far no complain with it. Quality seems to be good and should last for a long time. I would recommend this product.

This is a very easy to use but highly adjustable heat gun that allows you to set the temperature and blower speed. I only use mine to strip paint, usually off of old windows and doors and trim, but can be used by hobbyists and electricians for electrical work as well. High quality and puts out a lot of heat. I use leather gloves and suggest you do also.

Whatever job that needs heat to make it easier, this is the product you'll want. It will soften caulk,(makes scraping easier.)It helps to unlock a rusty handle, I could go on and on for using this product. Just buy it, you'll be glad you did.
