My New Toy

Digital ImageDigital ImageIt’s a heat gun.  It will be used to dry joint compound, which is used to fix bad spots in walls.

Previously I’ve used a hair dryer.  But a heat gun is MUCH hotter (see the glowing red spot on the wall?!), so it pulls moisture out of the wet compound much faster.

You have to be careful with it, though, as it can cause blistering / bubbling, so you have to keep it moving and not keep it on one spot for very long at all.

I was lucky enough to find this treasure at a church rummage sale (Bering Methodist’s famous twice a year Second Blessings sale) for a mere $6.
