Hi everyone my name is Kelsey and my name is Becky, and we are the Sorry Girls.
And we are here today to do the ultimate glue gun off.
Because we've had like major glue gun issues.
We've gone through so many glue guns in our lifetimeAnd we haven't found a great one and that's been a problem since we DIY with one almost every dayDecided to just go out and buy glue guns from like all different places in all different kinds and brands and the figure out whichOne's the best we're gonna put four glue guns.
I've got here some online some in-store through a series of tests.
We're gonna be rating them on not really the priceWe're just gonna like take that in consideration, but that's not going to be like part of the score systemWe are gonna be rating it on how long it took to heat upHow easily it is to squeeze the glue sticks through the glue gun because we've had some glue guns where it doesn't grip the glue stickAnd that is terrible.
And you really have to use your finger and it's like what's the pointAlso dry time if you guys remember the hot glue gun challenge that we did it took thatForever to dry the way you hot glue guns work is that you want it to dry fast.
You can keep moving go quickly and the other thing we're gonna be testingIs the flow of the glue when it comes out because?We've had it where we're trying to maybe draw something and put some glitter on it, and if it comes outall chunky-monkey like that's not good and lastly cord management because sometimes gonna be super annoying to use a glue gun and it's likedragging through your projectAnd it's so cumbersome, so if it's has a long court or an easy-to-use cord or no cordThen it's gonna get a lot of pointsOkaySo we're gonna go and go through all four of these put them through the test and then see if we have a winner by the endThis is gonna be interesting guys trust meI feel like I'm like this sounds like the most boring thing, but yeahYeah, but if you're a DIYer like yes.
I need this in my life like any sporting event ever if you're not into itIt's boring if you're into it.
It's like all right chip popcorn.
Let's goFirst up we have thisMastercraft glue gun that we got from our local hardware store type thing Canadian Tire if you guys are Canadian this guy was$13 Canadian and it took about a minute and a half to heat upAnd it's ready to be put through the test first up we have the squeezed ability testWowMmmKind of loose in here I'm probably only gonna give that about a three on a squeeze ability testOkay, there's like why is there like smoke, okay, glue gun you're not a real gun next up is dry timeSo we're gonna squeeze a little a little bit and see how long it takes to dry the fact that this one is steaming makesMe think that it's not gonna dry that quicklyStill wet but get in there come on.
I'm having some major flashbacks to our glue gun challengeThat was the worstYeah, that's what that was.
That's dry stop the timerNext up is the flow testWe should have drawn like an obstacle course that we could try to do.
You can get like pretty thin if you want.
You can get really thick if you want.
Oh, give that about a three.
I'm not like blown away, but maybe a four.
I'll give it a four in the flow and one of our last tests is cord management.
This is a really long cordIt's plugged into our extension cord here, but okay to use maybe I'll give it a threeI'm not blown away by any of the cord, but it's not like crazy short or anythingLet's see how its holds up to the other oneSo we have this guy here, which is the fanciest glue gun I've seen my whole lifeIt's a cordless glue gun which is honestlyI think gonna be a huge game-changer because I'm always fighting with glue gun cordsAnd it's like the worst thing ever so this is absolutely incredible this came from AmazonAnd it's by the brand Surebonder and it was$27 which is a little steep for a glue gun, but I don't know man if it's amazingIt's probably worth it so we plugged this in and got it heating up on the little stand and it took about2 minutes and 10 seconds to heat up which I guess is pretty average for a glue gunOkay, so first thing up is squeeze abilityIt squeezes out really really well.
I guess what I'm trying to say is it comes out fast cuz it squeezes so wellAnd I'm already out of glue.
It's a good thing bad thing it squeezes, so well it uses upGlue really quickly that was pretty good, so I'm gonna give it like a five.
Okay, next up is dry timeI am probably gonna need to reload this guy to test that one the only I guessDownfall to this maybe is that you need their really fat glue sticks for itBut if it is the only glue gun that we end up using then really that's fineBut if you want to use a bunch of different ones and it's kind of annoying you ready behind the camera with the timerOkayNot quite but getting there hey yeah, it's dry yeah.
My timer assistant is slacking over me, yeahThat's also bad.
It's also badWe'll put that on the list and then we'll evaluate when we're done the next test is FloWhich is how nicely it comes out of the tip I guess.
I know it's just glue gun and it's just for DIYsminds out of the gutterPeople I'm getting attacked by glue gun strings here, so let's see how nicely this comes outNot so goodIt's trying to do like a bigger hoping flow see if it's easier.
It's not goodIt's like clumpy and not easy to get like a goodStraight line so I don't know I'm gonna give this like a 2 and flow then the last test whichWe obviously know has to get 5 stars right away is cord managementReally, there's no cords to deal with which is great.
I love it.
I love it.
That's great okI really like that one probably because it's cordless, and it's just like the future of glue guns that got pretty high scoresSo we'll have to see how the rest of them match upNext up we have this blue gun that we've been using for a very long timeAnd we do not know why.
This one was six dollars from MichaelsAnd we're gonna put it through the test althoughWe already have it feel like it's gonna come in lastEvery time this one took six minutes to heat up, which I think is one of the longest onesOh my god, not.
This is not okay squeeze abilityThis should be like sliding.
You know it's just like carrying the glue stick.
There you go now.
It's having a good day today, whateverI still hate this glue gun so I'm gonna give it a two to one squeeze ability dry timeI'll test that yeah start the timer BeckyBlob let me try to tell the string is going uh just about there, it's not quite hardDry it's not quite dryDry enoughSo this might be one of the faster dry ones, but it doesn't get us hot soLet me try out the flow I feel like this one's like a pretty big nozzleI mean you can get pretty thin pretty thick, but it's really hard to squeeze itIt's hard to get a good flow when it's like really stiff you knowI'm gonna give it a two for flow cord managementUm I feel like this is one of the shorter cordsAnd the fact that it even has a cord means that it's not good, so let's give this a two for the cordI measured it it is shorter.
Oh the buzzer.
I think it's my Amazon purchase.
I did not buy more glue guns all right wellIt works like for six dollars the fact that even likeKind of pumps glue is impressive, but I would not recommend this oneLike the whole reason we're doing this test is because we owned this one.
It was so crappyWe're like let's find the best one.
We also have theseSo many glue guns.
We don't know like where we got these and they're old likeHand-me-down one so we didn't include them okay next.
Next up we have this guy and he was from Amazon it was kind of a random purchaseIt was like not very clear if it was good or not it was by some random company called Pat tech pot techI've never heard of them before and it was $18But it actually came with a bunch of glue sticks in the box, so you get more value for your moneyWhich is good?And we plugged it in and it honestly took like a minute to heat up, soLittle random Amazon purchase is off to a really good start, so let's put him through the test so firstLet's do squeeze ability.
It comes out pretty.
It's just very like yeah, you know what it works.
It worksI was gonna complain about something, but really it worksSo I'd say uh four stars next we're gonna see the dry time on this one since it heat it up so quickI don't know what that means for how quickly it's gonna dry, but we're gonna find out okay ready with the timerOkay, let's check dry time.
It's dry two minutes and 15 secondsThat's pretty good pretty good dangNext let's do flowYeahThat's pretty good.
OhNo, oh, no, that's not so goodCame off so that's not great, but you know what it's still really good.
I like it a lot alright.
We're giving flowThat's ours, and then last thing is cord managementHe is not a really longBut not a really short the one thing I like though is that?The cord here has this little like protect did bit that kind of makes it turn easierAnd I think these things make your cord last longer that they don't get broken or damaged as easilyWhich is great it might last a little bit longer and something else.
I want to mentionIt doesn't really relate to the cord at all, but it has an on and off switchWhich is so good because we are are always like unplugging and re-plugging in our glue gun which I feel isn't greatThis is so handy, so I'm gonna give cord like I don't know like fourPretty good, pretty good.
so that was pretty good we had some good ones earlierand some not so good ones, so let's tally up everything and see how they compareNailed it! Glued it! I'm so happy that we did that because honestly our glue gun struggleWe just how long have we been doing this before Becky? I don't know it's one of those thingsThat's like so annoying but not annoying enough that you do something about it until now we did something about itAnd we have some winners here folks so what we ended up doing was taking thoseTotals that we figured out and then also gave totals to like the amount of time we ordered themBy how long it took to heat up, and how long it took to dry anyways in last place we haveThis guy it was a total of 10 points.
This is our cheap Michaels one which literallyBye! uh came in next this guy our little Canadian Tire buddy here got a total of 14 pointsNot terrible, but not amazing so our runner-up isNot that one big mumbo jumbo hot glue gun buddy, which honestly is pretty good because it is cordlessBut it just couldn't do everything that our winner could do he got a total of 16 pointsSo we'll probably hold on until this one just have it and it's goodI think there's like bigger projects, but it was like if you try to do anything really small if you're trying to be likePutting little feathers on or something like that, then you need this guy and we came in first place also an Amazon purchaseSo we'll link both of these below this one got a total 21 points that mean was my biggest surprise cuz we bought this oneReally on a whim and okay guys we want to have a category of cutenessBut that is like not a thing when it come to glue guns.
Lowkey BeckyAnd I want to start a Glue gun lineThat like works well and is cute - I literally search like pink glue gun like light blue glue gun like cute colored glue gunsIt's hard man.
Struggle is real all rightThank you so much forWatching this video if you have a glue gun that you like rave by.
I feel like not a lot of people do.
If you do, if you do let us know and we can also check it out one of our other most requested videos is a DIY toolKit and essentials video, and we were holding off until we found our holy grail hot glue gun which now I think we have itIf you guys like to see more make sure to give us a like.
And if you love it make sure you sub it.
I don't know if that work.
See you next time.
