What can I say. I bought this tool and thought maybe I would use it only every now and then. OMG I think I may use it on every project. It's does take some time to warm up. And a little tip, set up some jewel before you start because once you take your finger off the button the tip starts to cool and has to be heat up to the right temp again. If you leave your finger on the button then it only takes seconds to melt to glue.
