What a hunk of junk!
I went against the comments of the professional users and bought it anyway. I wanted a tool that would allow more control then an iron. The tool doesn't get hot enough for the job. Save your money, follow the advice of others and use an old/cheap iron for best results. I've veneered MANY times and have usually been happy with the results, so disappointed!
Good for a small iron
I use mine all the time to heat transfer small patterns from a laser printer for my chip carving. Doesn't work good on smaller plates though. But working on a jewelry box this works great to transfer the pattern. Otherwise you need to use lacquer thinner and that is not only dangerous but toxic
Perfect for the job I needed to do! Perfect size to get in the corners! Verry happy with this purchase!
Woodcraft should be ashamed
Ive relied on Woodcraft for years to supply me with quality. This product is useless. [...] Any $10 clothes iron will do a much better job. I understand the need to reach a price point for beginners and homeowners but this is beyond reaching a price point. Its just plain a rip off. Save your money and use a clothes iron. I would expect this from their competitor but not Woodcraft.
OK for touchups
Not for the installation of edgebanding,Good for repairs & touch ups.
Very disappointing product
I have been using a clothes iron for my edge banding and thought this iron would work better. I was very disappointed. It does not get nearly as hot and takes twice as long to melt the glue and get the banding to stick. I'm going back to the clothes iron.
the better of the two types I found
great for banding and re-banding, too
Best edge banding iron I have used!
I'm very glad to have bought this iron, it made my job much easier. It is easy to use, quick to heat up, the sharp tip was terrific in tight spaces. I have used other irons and this one is much better, it has a slender feel, not clunky. The teflon bottom and sharp sides are all great attributes too.
Excellent tool, I would buy it again
Small enough to get in corners and tight spots, and get hot enough to activate glue.
