120-Volt Heat Gun is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.

I have owned Weller soldering ions and guns in the past and found them to be exceptional for the applications I used them in; this is no exception. Good heat gun for reflow soldering and shrink tube wrapping but be aware: it is not for large surface like paint removal applications or for drying. If you want a tight, focused heat/hot air source, this is for you (the cool setting works well for blowing cool air on hot surfaces, something I have used a number of times already on some thermal shut-offs). The nozzle of this is small (about the size of my thumbnail) which is an advantage for spot heating like applying shrink tubing or the like but does not work well for larger applications (my previous heat gun had a 1-1/2 in opening and was great for drying but not so much for spot applications). The gun is well made and sturdy and both heats and cools very quickly. It comes with a number of nozzle attachments for directing the heat or cooling which is handy. If what you want to do with your heat gun is as I have described above, then this will serve you well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well, it's not the prettiest tool in my shops arsenal but it is surely the handiest. This heat gun can both heat and then, if desired, cool whatever you are working on. This tool is much better and safer than using an open flame for shrink tubing, softening adhesives or to speed up epoxy curing. The four included reflectors/concentrators direct the air flow while protecting surrounding parts, thereby giving precise control of heat in tight work areas. Lastly, this heat gun is rated at 250 watts, weighs in at less than a pound, has a hook loop on the back of the gun for easy hanging and is UL listed for safety and quality.

This Weller kit was offered as a choice, just when my no-name cheapie died young. This is a Weller, like my pencil iron, gun and ESD station, all of which I have had for 15 or more years. It is very sturdily built as well, and comes with a selection of tips. It is lightweight, stays cool in the hand, and is ESD safe. It is also limited to just 250 Watts output, not the 1.2kW of my dead blow dryer. I saw the WELLER, I didn't read the fine print. So this is not a general-purpose paint removal tool, or a windshield deicer. It is specifically designed for fine / electronics work, applying heat shrink, or any kind of work that needs a tightly controlled, focused source of heat. And I have to admit, it is better suited for what I do. The nozzle is small, less than 3/4" diameter, air flow is low in volume and very directional with the right tip. It heats fast, and did a good job on heat shrink and quick-curing some E6000 glue. Playing with it at work, I was even able to remove SMT chips with it, up to 64-pin QFPs. And I did it without blowing smaller components off the board, or charcoaling the FRP. I have never used one of these before, so it has turned out to be a pleasant surprise. If you need a tool that is as much hot-air station as heat gun, this is it. For the application which it was designed, I highly recommend it.

I have used a variety of heat guns, from junk to industry professional models. I have to say that this gun meets all my needs. I know that it looks funny. But don't let the looks deceive you. This is a top notch tool that gets the job done. I really do recommend this product. It has several different attachment that will cover most all job applications. I will have to buy another one as my wife now claims it as her own. She uses it almost daily in her home hobby shop

This is a heat gun by Weller that is designed for use with heat-shrink tubing and other items such as adhesive lined heat shrinkable crimp connectors. It has a small outlet nozzle that can accept fittings to apply heat more evenly or focus it into a narrower cone for many small projects. There are two power settings on the gun: One for heat at about 800+ degrees; and one for no heat to cool the ceramic heat element and cool the just heated work project. This is not a wide swath heat gun. It is a narrow swath high-heat tool designed for specific projects. It works very well for shrinking heat-shrink tubing and similar stuff but it isn't designed for large areas or projects. Caution is given in the instructions regarding getting this heat gun's output too close to flammable objects. I tested my gun on a piece of copy paper and after 15-30 seconds it only turned the paper light brown. So I'm relatively sure it won't immediately cause a typical item to ignite in 2-3 seconds. But I am sure it will melt just about any plastic item that it comes into contact with and it will burn you if directed at your body parts. I do like this heat gun even though I already own larger high output models that work for bigger projects. It's perfect for those who do soldering and electrical work. I own several other Weller soldering irons, soldering stations and accessories and have found them to be dependable and long lasting. I feel that this heat gun will continue to meet my expectations when used as directed.

It has a trigger for cold air, off, and hot air. It can produce hot air at the tip at approximately 800 degrees Fahrenheit within 10 seconds. It comes with four heat gun baffle accessories (shrink tubing reflector 1 1/4", shrink tubing reflector 1/2", reducing baffle, precision reflector). Note you should always let the cold air run for about a minute when you shut down.

It has several tips for different things, some with deflectors so as not to heat surrounding items. Even without a tip adapter, the output is small, much smaller than local home store heat guns. It is very sturdily built, has a hook on the back for hanging between uses. Design does seem to be dated but it works.

The 120 volt Heat Gun is light weight and has a great stand on the heat gun which makes it nice when you are using it for heat shrinking wire. The heat gun is also great to use when doing craft projects. The heat gun also has two heat settings, one is low heat, and the other setting is high heat. The heat gun also has heat shields for directing the heat in a more focused area.
