I purchased this product for my daughter to use for crafts as it was the only product I could find at a reasonable price with multipule heat settings. She loves it.

This is my first heat gun ever and I am very happy to own it. I got it so I could dry the paint with this gun after running some cables through drywall to get the instant satisfaction of the project done fast. The capability of this tool is way beyond drying the paint. It works great in removing floor covering or paint, drying the paint or plaster, heating frozen locks or water pipes, loosening rusted locks, molding/bending plastic and even defrosting refrigerator. Temperature control ranges from 250-1350 and User Manual does a great job explaining the temperature guidelines in various situations. I took a picture of temperature guidelines from my phone so now every time I use the gun, I just open the picture in my phone, quickly see what the temperature should be, itâs very convenient. It looks stylish, easy to use and easy to store. Automatic trigger of COOL air after every use is a good safety feature. It comes with glass protector and flare nozzle attachments. You can buy scraper tool with interchangeable blades as additional accessories to further extend the usability of this tool. I highly advise to wear gloves when working with it.
One smart gun accelerating your project pace in so many scenarios is a great buy at such a low price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DennisJ A Very Useful Tool
The HT3500 is made of the same high quality you'd expect from Wagner. Itâs simple to use, with its digitally controlled touch-pads and has a cooling feature that cools itself and turns off once youâre done. There are twelve different settings for the temperature, giving you a very wide range of options. And two attachments to direct air flow in the way that suits your task.
I have a utility room adjacent to my carport that needed painting and has some cracking and peeling paint. I donât mind painting, but hate to scrape paint. The HT3500 cured that. With the Wagner in one hand and a scrape blade in the other, the paint was coming off quickly and easily. It was like shaving chocolate. Very impressive! I also removed some paint from my steps. Heat it up and scrape it off.
Being in the utility room reminded the wife that we needed to defrost the chest type freezer. The HT3500 cleared the ice quickly from inside and within a few minutes, we were loading everything back inside. The wife had used one of her hairdryers in the past, but the Wagner sped this task along.
Next up is the removal of some vinyl flooring.
This is one of those tools that once you have it, you realize what youâve been missing and how much easier things are to do with it. Like removing more paint than you would have initially, because itâs so much easier.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JohnS Push Button controls.
Wagner Heat Tool (Heat Gun) has a lot of settings that allow you to adjust heat from low to high speed and from 250 degrees to 1350 degrees. A total of 12 steps of temperature allowed.
The all-digital push-button control allows for quick and easy settings, and LED's show you which temperature you have set.
The set comes with two accessory tools; the glass protector and the flare nozzle.
I used the glass protector to remove old glazing compound from a window, allowing me to replace the glass pane.
I also used this to soften bathtub caulking to allow easy scraping and removal of the caulk. Once the tile and grout were cleaned, the tool dried the area thoroughly, allowing me to recaulk the tub quickly without a lot of waiting for the area to dry out. Quite a time-saver.
There are of course, dozens of other uses for this tool.
Some minor concerns: 1. There is no way to wrap the cord up; 2. There is no case or bag so no way to carry accessories; 3. Tool does not come with Concentrator Nozzle which to me, was important.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stereodude Solid heat gun for my uses
After having two cheapo 2 setting heat guns from the Freight place by the Harbor fail I decided to buy something better this time around. The HT3500 has more settings which is a plus since I can set the amount of heat more closely to what I want to do. It doesn't have a rocker switch on the handle that I can inevitably bump turning it off when I don't want to so that's a plus. So far the HT3500 as worked well for what I've used it for (shrinking heatshrink, blacking out thermally printed shipping labels, accelerating the drying of dye / stain / polyurethane when making finish samples, helping peel off sticky labels).
Note: The HT3500 always turns on to the same temperature and fan setting regardless of the last setting you last used it on.
Also, the cool function seems redundant. You can't use it on cool indefinitely. It turns off automatically after you put it on cool (once it cools down). It basically does the same thing if you just power it off. When you press the power button to turn it off, it will run in cool until it has cooled sufficiently then shuts off. The cool down time varies based on the temp you were using it at.
