Customer Questions & Answers

paint removal

I'm about to restart a project . Removing the several coats of old paint from a rod iron fence in advance of repainting. Have used various sanding tools in the past ... Dremel tool, belt sander, orbital sander ... but have found the process to be too slow given the amount of fence left to do. The paint is a combination of oil base and rattle can. My question is ... will a heat gun do this job both better and faster ? Which heat tool, ie. how hot do I need to get ? ... would be the best ? And, any suggestions on the right way to go about this project would be welcomed. Thanks, TMH Sugar Land, Tx.

I have never found a good way to remove old paint that I can say works well. Each instant of removal for paint presents different challenges. Heat certainly does help with this tasks but it is still slow and tedious. I use the heat gun a lot to help with these type of tasks making it easier to do.

does this gun work good on shrink tubbing for electrical work

Asked by: Jerry
While this will work, especially for 1/0 and larger cables, something like a Wagner HT400 is far better for jobs involving smaller wire gages and working inside control panels.

11.6-Amp 120-Volt Dual Temperature Heat Gun is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.

There are times that it is running continuously for 2-3 hours without being turned off, yet the fan bearings are holding up perfectly. Two temperature ranges are perfect. High for large area removal, low for detail work where high temperatures would quickly char the wood if not exceptionally careful.

Although the new heat gun replacement works as well as did the old one it will not fit the case from the original unit. The heat gun is bigger in diameter and the base stand is wider so use of the original case with accessories is a null point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heat Gun Worked excellently! I removed 61 years of paint and varnish in one swoop without burning any wood. Use on high setting. To remove old hinge screws with ease, heat em up! They unscrew so easily when hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heat gun I'm a window tinter. I started using this gun 4-5 years ago. This gun gets about 5-6 hours of use on high, 6 days a week. Still going strong! I would recommend this to any one for any use!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Come Close to Its Rated Temperatures I have a Milwaukee 8975 dual temperature heat gun. I have measured the output at both the low and high settings. I used a Klein digital temperature meter to measure the temperatures. The temperature probe was placed 1 inch in front of the nozzle. The maximum heat at the nozzle on the high setting would only reach 600° F. At the low setting the temperature would only reach 360° F. The temperature would also fluctuate approximately 40° at either setting high or low. This tool does not even come close to it's rated temperatures of 570° F and 1000° F. Do not buy this tool. I feel that Milwaukee is increasingly degrading the quality of their tools to meet the home-improvement market. This is sad to me as a professional, as Milwaukee used to be a brand that I trusted.
