With a digital display, temperature settings from 120 degrees F to 1200 degrees F in 10-degree increments, and 10 airflow settings (from 8.8 to 17.6 CFM), this is the perfect heat gun for the truly anal user.
Seriously, though, the wide range of temperature settings would make this pretty handy for delicate jobs. The new gun will initially ship with a hard case, and a number of optional nozzle attachments (such as a spreader, concentrator, deflector, and reflector) are available.
Like most recent Bosch releases, it’s got some well-placed rubber to make the grip nice and comfortable. We sorta miss the cool chrome plating on the old Bosch standby, the model 1942, though. We also like 1942’s cool plate on top that lets you sit the gun on the workbench to cool, or to use. Progress is progress, though.
One pre-order link’s up on Froogle already, listing a price of around $125. Look for more soon.
