We will be applying hot melt glue to our 1/4" case backs while they are in the case-clamp. What type of application system do you use? Iím not interested in the "sticks in the gun" system, but am looking at an applicator gun with a tank type delivery system. If you use this type of system and are pleased with your equipment could you recommend it?
From contributor B:
We use the 3M "Polygun II". It's still a stick gun. However, it's air assisted. We use it for exactly what you are wanting to do.
A couple of noteworthy items with either system: don't let it sit idle for long periods of time while heating as the glue in the tank will cook and cause problems with burnt glue clogging the gun tip. Keep the glue pellets clean by keeping the pellets in a covered can. Any debris in the pellets will eventually clog the tip - be careful. This machine has caused more trips to the ER than any other machine in the shop. Pressurized 350-400 degree glue must be respected.
