Re: Heat pistols

My Bernzomatic ST2200T Butane Torch has been very handy for relaxing heat shrink tubing, using the included hot air blower.

The Master Varitemp Heat Gun is the tool I use now for heat shrink tubing.

It is unlikely that a 9V heat gun will provide long-term satisfaction w/ collapsing heat shrink tubing.

Re: Heat pistols

Again, link or at least a make & model# needed.

I use the little butane ones like for scorching crème brûlée, same cartridges I use in my portable Iwatani 35FW stove.

Re: Heat pistols

If you want a battery powered heat gun, Ryobi recently released one that works with their 18 volt batteries. It comes with a heat shrink deflector. If you already have Ryobi 18 volt tools it’s sounds like a good addition to your set.
