Product Description

Product Description

Porcelain dolls, steam locomotives, old cars... People’s fondness for collector’s items make gluing an everyday job, especially when there are children around. There is always something to repair, fit, fix or make. This Bosch PKP 18 E glue gun makes that easier than ever before. It is easy to use and joins virtually all materials permanently and securely. The easy-to-operate trigger enables you to achieve fine glue channels--ideal for laying cables, fitting decorative strips or even performing sealing and smaller grouting jobs as well as many other jobs in and around the home. Gluing has never been so easy.

Bosch invented the Constant-Electronic technology to achieve perfect gluing results for precise as well as large-area applications. Due to this technology, heating elements are electronically controlled so that glue is applied with a constant and optimal working temperature of 200 degrees Celsius. Hence, items are attached with an even glue strip for a lasting connection. With the delivered extra-long nozzle, even fiddly jobs in hard-to-reach areas are completed easily. Thanks to the gluing capacity of up to 20 g/min, users work not just with perfect finishing, but also extremely quickly. Thanks to this technology, a heating time of just 7 minutes means users can start working with the Bosch PKP 18 E immediately.

The PKP 18 E's mechanical feed system ensures sensitive metering and targeted, rapid application. In addition, it also avoids dripping of glue to let the user work precisely and cleanly. For interruptions, Bosch equipped the glue gun with a stable wire stand making it safe to set the tool down without dripping.

Box Contains

  • 1 x Bosch PKP 18 E Glue Gun
  • 1 x Glue stick, transparent (11 x 200 mm)
  • 1 x Extra-long nozzle
  • 1 x Instruction manual

    5.0 out of 5 stars A very good glue gun 5 Aug 2012
    Verified Purchase
    The old saying "you get what you pay for" springs to mind with this tool.
    I've used Bosch power tools for over 20yrs and they are expensive but they are excellent and its no different with this glue gun.
    I've used a small bostic glue gun which worked ok as long as you liked hot glue everywhere and I recently bought and sent back two Stanley (heavy duty) glue guns that didn't work at all.
    So in the end bought this glue gun and when it arrived I wondered why I'd even bothered with any other make just for the sake of a tenner!
    The first thing that struck me was the size, this is a proper glue gun not a toy, the build quality is what you'd expect of anything with the name Bosch on it.
    The glue comes out in a thin localised bead only when the trigger is pressed making it so much easier to achieve a neater job.
    I am happy to recommend this tool and for 20 you won't find anything much better

    PS: This glue gun takes 11mm glue sticks so if you're moving up from a 7mm glue gun you'll need to buy some 11mm sticks.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for heavy use. 7 Oct 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I have had 5, yes 5 of these guns over the past 6 or so months, each one has failed because of the same problems, the trigger stops pushing the glue through, the glue starts leaking out of the top/sides and one even shorted on me with a little blue POP!. I do leave it on for a few hours at a time though which it obviously isn't meant to cope with. Trying a new brand now. Did love this gun though as the long nozzle was great for close detail work, i think if you are just using it for short sessions of work or odd tasks its great but if like me you use it all day every day then it isn't the gun for you.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bosch Quality 10 Feb 2010
    Verified Purchase
    This is as good as any other Bosch power tool etc. Good build, good quality and works as described. They could supply a few more glue sticks with it which is my only minor whinge (though bought a large pack of sticks from Aldi)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Nice 26 Mar 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Bought a hot glue gun a few years ago. It delivered luke warm, stringy, thick beads of not really sticky stuff.

    This is different. Lovely thin beads of hot, sticky glue! Heats up fairly quickly, good long trigger pull.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good lil glue gun 15 May 2010
    Very good gun, simple to use and works effectively and quickly, only takes a few minutes to heat up. You should buy extra glue sticks straight away as you only get provided with one and they run out fast. Good Product.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Quality build, and easy to use ! 8 Feb 2010
    This Bosch glue gun is very reasonably priced, obviously from this big name brand you get fantastic build quality so it should last for years and years, the trigger is very strong so won't snap easily like most budget glue guns.

    When using the glue gun, it heats quite quickly usually around 4-6 mins. Once heated you can unplug it from the socket to use further away from the wall socket for around another 6-10 minutes depending on the room or outdoor temperature before having to heat for a bit longer.
    The long nozzle provides you with accurate gluing while also disbursing a very decent amount of glue quickly if needed, other nozzles can be obtained through Bosch if you required a standard nozzle (I don't think there would be any need to though as the supplied one is very versitile).

    The glue gun can be left on for a very long time before the nozzle will start to drip with glue (it's a very small amount though), but the non-drip mechanism works a heck of a lot better than any other glue gun I have previously owned and used.

    The only downside to the glue gun and is the reason for the loss a 5 star rating is it has no status light at all, so you can't see if it is on or not which can be annoying if your plug socket is hidden from view.

    Overall a great product, certainly the best glue gun I have used by a country mile! and you can definatly feel it has been built to last. Highly recommended !

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good value Glue Gun 31 May 2010
    I've only had this about a month, and usually deplore the idiots who rush to review a product when they've hardly got it out of the box, let alone used it over a period of time. However, this glue gun has worked consistently well and as long as it lasts (and Bosch products usually do) I shall be satisfied.

    I'm a professional bookseller so I use a glue gun for an hour or more three or four times a week to pack my parcels of books. This model produces a thin consistent line of glue through a metal tube, ideal for my purposes. My last glue gun had a wider outlet, rubber tipped. The rubber soon perished and fell off, leaving an overlarge delivery hole. It also gave out after five years, having cost 100. At 16 or 17 the Bosch only has to last a bit more than a year and I will have had my money's worth.

    The only downside with this gun, compared with the other, is that it is very light and easily knocked over. One solution, which Bosch could contemplate, would be to enlarge the wire stand in front to make it wider. This would give a bit more stability.

    Overall the gun has a good feel. If I were using it for craftwork its ability to produce small dots of hot glue would be ideal, and for bigger projects it works well for me.
