"I had been struggling to remove some very old pant from interior woodwork which contained lead. I had tried the suggested method of chemical removal but found all the paint strippers to be completely useless.
After much googling, I decided to try the heat gun, which is safe on lead paint, so long as the paint doesn't burn and cause fumes.
This heat gun did the job perfectly and relatively quickly. I wore a respirator mask and used the gun on the 350deg setting which didn't burn the paint at all. Opened as many doors and windows as possible. The fumes were minimal.
"I got this to remove old adhesive from the back of some reclaimed flooring it melted it just enough to scrape it off with relative ease. Since then it's been invaluable in removing paints and varnishes on jobs. A very good tool."
"I was looking for an easier way to deal with weeds (as well as my long-handled weeder) and wanted a weed burner but hate using gas and gas cylinders due to childhood accident. So I was delighted when it was suggested a heat gun would serve the purpose if I added a long cable. And it did! It is a bonus that I can use it in the future for its original purpose also."
"The heat gun is light, easy to use, comes with all required accessories and all fit nicely in the box, so you know where every thing is when you want it. The heat gun does everything as described. I am so very pleased with this product and so reasonable priced. Earlex, you have one delighted customer"
"Not a bad hot air gun, although the first unit packed up after a couple of weeks so had to wait for a replacement from Screwfix. Second doing ok at the moment. You can stand it on end when switched off in order to cool down but would have thought there would have been a stand included or have the fan only running to cool the unit down when you have finished work with it. As it does get quite hot. But on the whole a fair unit."
"The first gun I got had a fault which was that the fan didn't work. I returned it the following day and the satff at Hemel were very good and got another one in for me the next day. This worked and performed very well, which I used to strip paint off my back door. I'm also happy with the accessories that are provided with it in the carry case."
