Dremel make a variety of mini-tools, many derived from much larger DIY tools. These include things such as drills, grinders and rotary saws and primarily intended not for DIY but for model-making and other hobbies.
Perhaps continuing that approach, they have produced this glue gun, similarly small and compatible with the thinner 7mm glue sticks (the full-sized versions tend to use 11mm). I am very familiar with the standard hot glue guns, having used them for many years, principally since they were first available in the UK. This, a smaller version, is owned by a hobbyist friend.
I have used it just once and it is not significantly different than its bigger brothers, other than in size. It does eject rather less glue than do they but that is precisely why I presume Dremel introduced it - you simply do not need as much.
Perfectly fitted for hobbyists and probably with some uses in jewellery-making too. I know that it is sometimes used by those who make the flies used in fishing. The glue is waterproof and, once set, just about permanent.
The glue is very hot when first ejected and can burn but is otherwise very safe.
