I wanted to update my gule game,, did I get the right one:blink:
Well can't get a pic up,,,
it's this one, https://www.gluegun.com/collections/pam-glue-guns/products/pam-hb-220-glue-gun
I haven’t messed with hot glue in construction....how does it fair over a CA glue and activator?

I have that glue gun (bought mine when it was still PamTite). Very nice gun, but it is not the best thing for trim work. The glue has to much body to allow for tight joints. We use it for making templates with drywall shim and tacking on drawer faces. It great for that odd piece of tile also.

If youre looking for something that is closer to CA glue and "white glues", you'll want HyPur.

Hopefully Justin sees this, I believe he now uses a commercial air powered HyPur gun for all his trim pre-assembles.

Oh ,, that's nice. Do you screw down all of your subfloors?
Yep. We do it right away. Only use 8 penny nails to tack. We have done it this way for as long as we have been in business. Used a Senco gun for years. Just got the PamFast by Fastenmaster. I was a little hesitant because of their proprietary screws and bits but they do not strip or break so I think it is worth it. We have 3100 square ft of Advantech to install next month so this setup will get a workout.

Is that a PamFast quick drive on the end?? I looks just like the Grabber SuperDrive.

And you screw all of this extra plywood down for tile? Is this correct?

I think you told me no one does mud floors in your area.
Is this correct? :laughing:

My OCD kick in :smile:

We do in a remodel situation if it needs it. We also screw our subflooring down as we frame in new construction. No we don't do any mud floors in my area.

Is that dewalt gun special for the pamfast or will any dewalt screwgun work?
Not special for the PamFast. It is Dewalts screwgun made for metal fastening according to their site. It just happens to work with the extension. I do not think the drywall guns would work..to fast on the rpms and not enough torque.

Last time the rep at the lumber yard was demonstrating the Pamtite gun they were using a Milwaukee. I think they were even throwing it in the deal.
I know a couple framers that got them for free when got a big amount of screws..
A larger outfit got all senco nailers and screw guns for free as long as they got the ammo from senco.. but they spent probably 100k in fasteners a year haha.
