A compact hot air gun for small jobs where a normal unit would be far too big or aggressive. The housing is made from glass fibre reinforced polyamide with soft grip and feet for stationary use. A powerful 500W element produces an even temperature in two stages, 350° and 550°, with a protection thermostat to prevent overheating. The nozzle is made from stainless steel, three push fit extra nozzles are provided, spot, fan and reflector. Perfect for shaping plastics, soldering and de-soldering electrical components or removing paint and varnish from small items.

Quality issuesOriginally bought March 2012, Axminster replaced in October 2012 and again in October 2013. This last replacement stopped working October 2014, but not eligible for replacement because out with the original 2 year warranty. It would be a great little gun with a good set of attachments if it was not prone to failure, so I cant even give it a good rating for features. We have not given it a hard life. Considering I have a cheap 1970's Black & Decker drill still going strong, I can only say 'they dont make them like they used to'.
