Now that’s a useful trick. Not sure it would work with contact cement but I will definitely try to check out if it also does.

Blackie, Supre advise. Many heat guns are rated at about 4500 degrees. I didn’t witness any scorching of the alder in your video, and the heat gun link mentioned wattage but not temperture. Do you have any idea as to how hot you might apply without scorching are maring most normal projects woods?

Hi Russell

On the very bottom of that link to the heat gun in comments it says nozzle can reach up to 400 degrees.

Sodabowski, I have used a heat gun to “unglue” Formica that was glued with contact cement. Works well. My heat gun gets a LOT hotter than the one Randy posted so can char things if you’re not careful (but Formica can take a lot of heat).

Okay so it works too. Not sure this would do with veneer if you heat that much (until I get my hands onto some decent and fairly priced hide glue the only thing I’ve got in my arsenal to glue veneer without it warping is contact cement). Thanks for the tip mate :)
