    Woodland Scenics Low Temp Foam Gun? I've had this thing plugged in for an hour and ever 20 minutes or so I get 1 drop. Does this sound defective maybe?wall1 I pull the trigger and nothing... maybe a drop.

    Sounds like it's not heating up anymore.

    I bought cheapy low-temp gun from Wal-Mart for like $5, works great.

    Man do I feel stupid. I never used a glue gun before. I put another stick in behind the one that was in there so now when I pull the trigger it is feeding it's self and working great.sign1 Live and learn I guess. The problem now is it is setting up to fast for laying track on the foam bed.

    Hah. Glad you figured it out.

    But yeah, when a stick gets low it goes past the the little feeder clip, so a new stick needs to be inserted so it'll continue to push what's left through.

    Glue gun...

    And be careful when trying to feed the new one in with the trigger - I have had to push the pins out to reconnect the trigger to the spring because I tried to force it...

    make sure you wear a rubber glove

    that glue gets really hot and sticks to fingers very well

    Starting to find out how his works. Got myself a pop sickle stick to spread the glue. Working good so far.
