Master Appliance Heat Guns: Versatile Tools for a Variety of Flameless Heat Tasks

There's nothing like having a fully stocked toolbox. And whether you're a homeowner or a professional, having the proper tool handy helps to avoid those "uh oh" moments. Some fixes go beyond the everyday screwdriver or hammer, and having something like a heat gun in your toolbox could be a life-saver.

Master Appliance knows a thing or two about heat guns—having manufactured them for 55 years. They've provided homeowners, electricians, plumbers, and contractors with high-quality heat guns to meet a variety of tasks such as paint stripping, thawing out pipes, soldering, bending PVC pipes, drying paint, and more. Let's take a closer look at a few of these versatile, must-have tools.


The original Master Appliance Heat Gun first released in 1958, the Master Heat Gun has been used by countless professionals for a myriad of tasks requiring reliable, flameless heat. Solidly built (double-protected heating element and die-cast aluminum housing) and powerful (its universal motor provides 23 CFM airflow with temperatures up to 1000°F) the Master Appliance Master Heat Gun offers durability and longevity.
