Rated 5 out of 5Â by Matty246810 GREAT BUY - Earlex Heat Gun
Bought this for a home project, removing decades old thick layers of exterior gloss paint - worked like a charm, very impressed with this budget product.
It's light too which means it's not tiring to use for long periods, and the accessories have been useful - though the glass protector could be bigger.
Fantastic for zapping weeds too for anyone who's tried heat guns for that - as always use with great caution though.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by bikegranddad Earlex heat gun
The first gun I got had a fault which was that the fan didn't work. I returned it the following day and the satff at Hemel were very good and got another one in for me the next day. This worked and performed very well, which I used to strip paint off my back door. I'm also happy with the accessories that are provided with it in the carry case.

I had been struggling to remove some very old pant from interior woodwork which contained lead. I had tried the suggested method of chemical removal but found all the paint strippers to be completely useless.
After much googling, I decided to try the heat gun, which is safe on lead paint, so long as the paint doesn't burn and cause fumes.
This heat gun did the job perfectly and relatively quickly. I wore a respirator mask and used the gun on the 350deg setting which didn't burn the paint at all. Opened as many doors and windows as possible. The fumes were minimal.
Great product. Easy to use.
