Get gluing! A must-have for all kinds of crafting and DIY projects, a hot glue gun is a great addition to any tool kit.

Invented in the late 1940s, the glue gun was developed after Boston native George Schultz watched shoemakers burn themselves while scooping hot glue out of a pot. His first model, a simple and bulky affair, was called the Polygun. Shultz would hardly recognize today’s sleek and capable versions. To choose a model that’s right for you, browse our roundup of the best cordless options below.
