Awesome hack! Looks like it works just as well as a glue gun! Welcome to instructables!

Only if you get good at it and dont heat the glue to long. If you do it makes black mark on the glue so i f its going to be een be careful.

Good to know. How much working time would you say you get per lighter use?

It really depends on the amount of glue you have, I uses up the glue faster than the lighter fuel.

It depends on what lighter you use.
