I read that as microwave, and then you explaining how to use a microwave to melt it.....

Generally when people suggest multiple ideas they use "or"

I never said to put a can in the microwave... I said put a can containing hot glue sticks into a pot of boiling water. time to learn about the joys of reading, no?


Time to learn the joys of WRITING, no?

@Gepard- You are right, I should have used better means to seperate my two suggestions. I have since edited my first post so as it will be more clear to those who read it.

@spudzinger- My appologies for coming across rudely in my last post, and yes I should spend a little more time making sure my posts are more clear to those who are reading them.

Generally when people start sentences with a conjunction, they have probably failed an English course.

When suggesting multiple ideas, most people use commas. :wink:

Is boiling water really hot enough to be that effective? My old hot glue gun went to 380F.
Microwaves don't seem to react with hot glue very efficiently, I put a stick in a 1.1KW microwave for over 30secs and it was barely warm.
You could always just pre-heat the oven to 325 and use a soup can.

Depends on the glue. They do have low-heat glue guns that, although still quite toasty, don't get as hot as the regular hot glue guns. The boiling water might be effective for that, but as for regular hot glue, I doubt it.

I'm familiar with the English language thank you. I used 'Generally' as an Subordinating Conjunction to introduce the dependent clause "Generally when people suggest multiple ideas they use "or"" that was attached to the independent clause "I read that as microwave, and then you explaining how to use a microwave to melt it....." hence the use of the repeated full stops, using the two carriage returns to break up my reply introducing white space making it easier to read on higher resolution monitors such as the one I'm currently using.

Uh-oh, the e-thugs and their grammar warfare are out, i'd better be careful. :(

But seriously, I melted some glue sticks in one of those aluminium disposable pans once. Just hold a propane torch under em and they'll melt in a matter of seconds. The only caveat is if you hold th torch too close, you'll burn a hole in the pan.

I may try the same method with a metal can next time, I think the thicker metal would make it easier.

Oh, and I see authors start sentences with a conjunction all the time, english grammar seems to be a very subjective thing, usually depending on how old you were when it was taught to you.

I know, but still. This thread has become pointlessly off topic.

To get hotmelt glue up to the right temperature it can be a pretty dangerous material to be working with.

I've found a TecBond one for £14 online - probably not worth the risk of burning yourself for that price:

Um why are we melting hot glue without the hot glue gun? The way I see it is if you are trying to make something with it, you will probably need to injection mold it, so hot glue gun, or home made hot glue gun...
