I have had my TR-550 for many years now. My impression today is the same as when I bought it; this thing is amazing. First, people, please, use the right glue stick. The TR-550 heats to 375 deg. F with a 40 Watt element. Cheap or "generic" glue sticks will not yield top-notch performance. The glue heats rapidly, holds its heat for assembling long or complex bonds, and flows smoothly. The trigger feed system is a thing of beauty. Flows fast or slow, you control it all. One tiny minor complaint is the glue drip tray/stand. After many years of use, mine has snapped off. Sad to see it go, as now I have a bent wire hanger filling in. The rest of the gun keeps right on rolling along. Would I recommend this? Yes, and I have never seen any glue gun that compares. Price for the performance is the best there is.

Where are the cleaning instructions?

This gun seems nice. Sturdier than others, etc., but ours is plugged up and there are no instructions for how to clean it. I removed the threaded nozzle, put it in boiling water and picked out the glue, and now it is soaking in acetone, but these are just guesses at what might solve the problem. I doubt this will work as I see there appears to be a ball valve in the nozzle, and I can't get it to open. It sure would be better if Arrow provided instructions for storage and cleaning.

      Comments about ARROW FASTENER Arrow® Lever Glue Gun (Tr550):

      I came to this page looking for instructions on use (misplaced originals). The gun did not initially feed the glue. When I put in another 4 inch stick, it worked fine. I suspect that some of the other complaints that gun "won't feed glue" would be solved by adding another stick or using a larger 10 inch glue stick.

          Purchased glue gun today along with the proper Arrow glue sticks. After sufficiently heating the glue stick would not feed when trigger was pulled. left gun plugged in longer to be sure glue stick was melting but still did not feed. Exchanged for another gun of same model. will try to use it again tomorrow.

              Heats up quickly and feeds a lot of glue (be sure to use good glue sticks), but have the designers ever actually used it? The stand is an utter joke and simply does not work. What a waste of 20 grams of plastic. Seriously, the stand / drip catcher (another design faux pa) simply does nothing but keep you from actually gluing anything because you have to swivel it out of the way to even dispense glue. Additionally, several online sources put this device from anywhere from 60 to 100 watts, but it is only 40W. Arrow, please give product specs on your site.

                  Worst ever. Thought I would invest in a heavy duty glue gun. Gun does not feed glue stick. Glue either leaks out the back or nothing at all. Should have stuck with the cheap small glue guns.

                      Will not melt glue sticks. poor product. useless. I put glue sticks in and left them for more than 30 minutes and they would not produce enough glue to even stick. I would return it but I do not have my receipt. I will never purchase another Glue Gun made by Arrow

                              Works great, but I need a metal sear for it because when I pull the trigger the sear just slides under the glue stick instead of biting into the glue stick. This is what is causing it to malfunction. If a new metal sear could be made for it it would fix the malfunctioning problem I am having.

                                                  I bought this glue gun a couple of weeks ago. Works great. Heats up quick and does not drip. The gun is ergonomically desgined and feels comfortable. A couple of things to remember: 1. Some people have complained about the glue running and dripping. The type of glue you use will make a difference. 2. A glue gun is not a refrigerator - you cannot plug it in, walk away, and leave it running endlessly. It is a tool for temporary, momentary use - keep that in mind.

                                                  I just bought this today. After placing 2 glue sticks in the chamber, and waiting for a half hour for it to heat up, I found that no glue comes out of the chamber, although the casing is hot to the touch. It doesn't even drip glue. I'm returning it tomorrow, and do not recommend it for any purpose.
