  • Weller Heat Guns at Kimco

    For anyone who has experience with soldering and working with electrical components knows that quality products help the entire process go much smoother. With Weller heat guns, available at Kimco, you can now do top quality soldering jobs with much more confidence.

    A heat gun is different than other soldering irons as they are constructed with a pistol grip design for better control. They also have a trigger which will give instant heat when depressed. This is different from a solder iron, or a soldering station, where the heat is constantly at the tip. Using a heat gun is also different from the use of an iron. As you hold the gun you are able to complete larger points of solder over a little bit larger area than you would with an iron. Irons are mostly for spot soldering while guns are for larger areas.

    The Weller heat guns all have a distinct pistol like grip, but have different qualities across models. The Weller 8200PK heat gun kit is a great tool for those who are doing soldering projects for fun or involved in simply repairs. The Weller 6966C is a 250-watt heat gun that is ESD-safe and usable in more industrial type settings where there are mass assemblies.

    Whichever you are in the market for, Kimco carries Weller heat guns at affordable prices - the 6966C costing $129 - with very fast shipping. Take a look at the Kimco website for more soldering accessories, irons, and soldering stations. You will find that the prices are equally low and that our customer service deserves it top rating.

  • Steinel hobby heat guns are perfect for crafts and hobbies

    One of the mainstay tools of any hobbyist or craft enthusiast is the glue gun. With Steinel hobby heat guns these crafters and hobbyists can not only enjoy their work, but also do it without any glue hassle. One of the reasons that glue guns are used is because of the way that the glue from the gun bonds with the parts. The heat of the gun melts a glue stick which then seeps into the surface of the pieces. When the glue begins to harden it incorporates each part into it and forms a bond stronger than other types of bottle glue.

    One example of a hobby heat gun that Kimco carries is the Steinel TM6000 ThermaMelt 6000 Butane Powered Glue Gun. It is a cordless glue gun that uses removable butane canisters for ease of use and quick refueling. This gun has a heating point of 320 - 464 ° F / 160 - 240° C and cuts the flow of glue off immediately so there is not dripping. This gun, along with others, is available at the Kimco online catalog.

    Hobbies such as modeling, electronics, or crafts that require gluing pieces together will benefit a great deal from the adhesive bond made possible from this type of glue gun. Check out the Kimco online catalog for more information on this, and other products, for your hobbies and crafts. The site is easy to navigate and lists the details of each product so there is no confusion over what you need.
