I need to purchase a new heat embossing tool/heat gun. Is there one that you would particularly recommend and why? Several seem to have more than one setting, but most don't. Does this make a difference? Please give me some guidance. Thanks in advance for your consideration. Lisa Byrnes Bircher

There are two heat guns that we use often and can't really pick a favorite! Here are links to both of these on the Annex:

Both heat guns have only one setting (off/on) and they heat incredibly well. Having more than one setting really doesn't matter, depending on the projects you're doing. Hope this helps!
