    Anyone seen or heard anything about this device?
    Used for heating up your banger/bucket using a hot air stream.
    Apparently takes 30 to 120 seconds to heat up the banger.
    Price seems a bit expensive at $499.

    IMO it is an expensive item that really does not solve a problem for me. I don't think I'd give up an outlet in my workshop for that... especially at a ridiculous $500.

    LMAO!!
    You are correct! it seems as if they have taken it apart and made it fit into a box and changed the screen with a green insert!

    Going to email them and see what they say!

    Email sent! Let's see what they say...

    Its basically the same concept as a heat gun. I remember them saying something along the lines of the advantages of this over a regular heat gun is you can use it hands free, and you also dont have to worry about burning yourself or your table/floors etc as well as knocking it over... is that worth an extra $400 :hmm:

    Still needs to be able to run both businesses if he wants to be successful...
    Almost at a month now with no replies.
    How long should a quick reply take?

    It would seem to me that, while not as aesthetically pleasing, a couple coat hangers folded just so would provide a hands free option for the heatgun for slightly under $400....just slightly
