Adtech Pro spark explosion flames shooting!!!

#1
I think I’ve built roughly 7 planes with this thing. Didn’t even know they could blow up and catch fire. Google gods say it happens a bit. Not fun and a melted T-28 Christmas present. Let the glue gun research begin! Wondering if this is why FT converted over.

Heck yeah! I had that happen with a Harbor Freight drill press I bought to build my AK with. I was just drilling a trunnion minding my own business then smoke started pouring out of it and flames shot out. Took it back and got another. This one is a beast.

There is about a 30% failure rate of harbor freight tools, but some of them are great too.

thanks for the heads up. like lipo batteries, i will try to be more cautious in the future.

As an update, the company reached out to me and sent me a new gun and a big box of glue via fed ex. Definitely will never walk away with it plugged in but I did love it before it went poof.

Hello,
I had that occur with a Harbor Cargo drill press I purchased to construct my AK with. I was simply boring a trunnion staying out of other people's affairs then smoke began spilling out of it and blazes shot out. Took it back and got another. This one is a monster.

There is about a 30% disappointment pace of harbor cargo devices, yet some of them are extraordinary as well.

Good to hear that they stepped up the way that they did!

I'm not personally a fan of their glue guns (I don't like the way the trigger feels and that I have to pull it a lot more than my Dewalt; personal preference thing for me), but it seems like a solid company who steps up when needed! :)
