    That`s a useful tool! But please don`t snap those blades towards yourself next time ;) Metal shards might fly into your eyes if Its not a quality blade.

    With a lamp dimmer control and a blunt tip, this can also seal poly bags as well, adjust dimmer until fusion just occurs.

    Nice tool you have here, very useful and inexpensive.
