Anyone ever used one of these? Seems like a a great tool with many applications but I haven't seen one used in a scene shop before. Maybe cost is a factor, I'm not sure what the tool costs but the glue is well priced

Also depending on how you spray it you can get some cool textures too. We use it when setting up haunted attractions and walk throughs.

Wow $850. I can see why its not used for theater that much. https://www.hotmelt.com/products/power-adhesives-tec-7100-multi-load-pneumatic-glue-gun this is the souped up version of the one we tried out. Has a hopper where you can load extra glue slugs and reduce down time. Glue is$150 and up for 22lb cartons. Site says about 176 glue slugs per carton. When we tried it out we got around 4 square feet of spray per slug, depending on spray pattern. you could spray 22 sheets of 4x8 for \$150. Now I gotta crunch the numbers and see how much it would cost to cover twice the area with contact adhesive. (since you'd have to spray both sides of whatever you're gluing with contact adhesive)

I was talking about this at the shop and it turns out I've seen a similar product before. We used basically the same thing with a really small tip to do glow in the dark spider webs last Halloween. I didn't remember the tool , but the effect was really cool.
