No need, thanks for the offer though. My heat gun hasn't given out and doesn't appear to ever plan on it. (Industrial model)

his heat gun will burn the skin right off your hand on low. Dont think he needs one.

I question Dremel brand being better quality. I have seen how Bill uses his B&D. if his lasted 6 years and I killed mine in less than 3 with less use. And this wasn't the first time he saw smoke from it. I've been there before where it filled a section of the basement with its burning smell.

I got a B&D for Christmas and have never used it. I used to have a Rotozip, and I will NEVER buy another. Worst piece of machinery I've ever owned (next to a Crown Vic). My uncle has one of those industrial heat guns. We were using it to pull the decals off an old truck, and the paint started coming off from the heat.

I've been known to over kill when buying tools.

Tonight will be interesting on what I pick up. I need a dremel like tool tonight. There'* no time to play around with brushes etc.

The heat gun...well...you need to be careful. It'* not a toy.

Rob..ever seen my angle grinder? You'd like that one.
