    Default Glue Gun

    Can anybody help?
    Iím looking for a battery operated, small glue gun. I have a large, cordless one that needs to be plugged in to heat up, but Iíd like something more portable.
    Iíve read some really negative reviews for the stick it one and have seen a Rayher one on Amazon but canít find any reviews for it.
    Has anybody got either? Are there any others out there?
    The really annoying thing is, that I used to have one, but Iíve no idea where it is, though I do have a feeling that it broke.
    Failing that, what recommendations do you have for sticking mdf to mdf?
    Thanks

    Did not know they did battery operated glue guns
    I’m am sure there must be some glue about that would work
    I expect you would want something fast drying and not something that smells
    of decaying fish lol

    There are some good wood glues recommended for MDF on amazon but they are slow drying

    I have used the Cosmic Shimmer one but the constant blocked up nozzle and general rubbishness of the bottle drives me mad.

    Aleene's Tacky Glue grabs fast, and dries reasonably quickly. I used it on a shelf in my dolls house that had 'stuff' on it, so wasn't exactly light. I had to hold it for a couple of minutes, but as it was upright, I was happy to do so. There is also a thicker version of the glue, which dries even quicker.

    The normal Aleene's used to be used by Noreen of Flowersoft fame, except they charged as much for a weeny bottle as I pay for a 4oz job from eBay/Amazon. Honestly, four times the price just because it said Flowersoft/Katy Sue Designs on the stuff.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.
