There are countless DIY projects that we can undertake but having the best equipment for your project will make a huge difference. Just recently I found this cordless hot glue gun for crafts and many more projects.
The WORX 20V Hot Glue Gun uses standard full-size 11mm (7/16 in. diameter) glue sticks, which are widely available through hardware stores, home centers, discount and craft/hobby stores, and other outlets. A variety of hot glue sticks are available to match the application.

Preparing For Your Next Best Project With WORX 20V Hot Glue Gun
Preparation is key before starting any hot glue gun project. Consider using a piece of cardboard beneath the project being glued to catch excess glue. Keep extremities away from the hot glue gun’s tip. The tool reaches 392ºF (200ºC) in up to three minutes. The tool automatically shuts off after 20 minutes of inactive use or the user can shut it off with the power button.
“Hot glue guns have been around a long time,” said Katie Roberts, WORX Senior Product Manager. “Ours is different from the conventional glue gun since its body is similar to a cordless drill for sure handling and control. The 20V battery adds portability, as well as a solid footing for the tool to stand upright on its own.”
The glue from hot glue guns bonds quickly. In woodworking, typical uses include adhering joints, such as those in cabinets, drawers, picture frames, and glue-up panels before planning. In metal, it’s connecting pipes, bonding sheet metal, and other applications. Hot glue gun sticks also work well when working with plastics. In ceramics, they’re effective in fixing a broken vase, pottery, or a coffee or tea cup’s handle. Hot glue guns also manage basic home repairs, toys, eyeglass frames, and other repairs. And the tool is essential in many arts and crafts projects.
The hot glue gun’s 11mm glue sticks are advanced through the glue stick chamber at the end of the gun. Only use 11mm size glue sticks and not the minis, which also are available. The nozzle’s collar is 1/8 in. (3mm) in diameter and this is where the hot glue exits the tool.
What’s In The Box of The WORX 20V Hot Glue Gun
Besides the hot glue gun, the tool also includes a WORX 20V 2.0Ah battery, charger, and 10 11mm multipurpose glue sticks. The tool is covered by the WORX three-year limited warranty.
The WOR 20V Power Share Full-Size Hot Glue Gun (WX045L, $69.99) is available at worx.com. A bare tool version, minus the battery and charger, (WX045L.9, $29.99) also is available.
