Is it possible to use hot glue as an adhesive for LTD stirling engines?

Is it possible to use hot glue as an adhesive for building low temperatue difference (LTD) stirling engines? I was wondering because I do not want to buy epoxy or other expensive glue. Will I be able to use hot glue, or will the glue melt from the heat of a cup of boiling water?

No it melds at around 130 deg C although may get a little soft at lower temps - A cup of water should be fine.
My answer looks like I am saying no don't use it - Yes you should be able to.

Just try it and see, at worst you waste 10 cents of hot glue
