A heat or hot air gun is useful to heat up metals that are hard to solder or to assemble 3D printer nozzles under heat, for example.

For well-regulated and more focused heat you may want to use a hot air soldering station instead.

Uses

scraping certain paints only works under heat
  • paint removal (see left)
  • bending 3D-prints (be careful, the line between bendable and liquid is very thin with PLA)
  • fitting heat shrink tubing
  • drying stuff (e.g. paint, but not recommended as it could cause cracks)
  • what else comes to mind?
