    53ECE31F-3CA5-4618-BB54-FB4AED5586AC.jpeg I got this Milwaukee M18 heat gun for Christmas . I used it , For the first time the last 2 days , on outside corners of cove base. It is awesome. The weight of the battery makes it very steady when setting it on the floor.

    What's the battery life? Never figured those were possible.

    8031008C-8321-4B04-B2FC-50700B75B408.jpeg I used it for 2 days doing outside corners,
    the battery was still up to 3 out of 4 bars.
    But it’s a big ( 9 amp hour) I was using.
    It doesn’t blow out as hard as my electric one,
    So you put it closer to the work piece.
    The heat is pretty much instant.

    I could use that to heat up the steel bars on the border fence so they are easier to cut with my DeWalt battery powered sawzsall when Trump imposes Marshall law.

    That's impressive Don. Cords are a pain with a light weight gun.
