    would this work with a used glue gun????????????????????

    That is awesome! Too bad I would just use a microwave xD

    You're scaring me, you have a comment on 95% of the instructables i look at =P

    Not like I am stalking you... o.o

    uhhh this blew a fuse in my house. i think the paper clips screwed up the connections. sparks flew, lights flickered, you know.

    only thing is the glue gun must be a very high wattage

    How would you do this with a soldering iron?
