    I received a Coralvue gluegun for Christmas and want to get a refill of glue. There doesn't appear to be any refills available anywhere. The same with the gun. Was it pulled off of the shelves for some reason?

    Mine doesn’t work at all... nozzle immediately clogs after use. Probably got pulled IMO.

    I ended up buying a replacement set of nozzles for it from Amazon and basically used it as one and done.

    No problem at all. Yeah I have heard many people talk about the tips, but this usually a problem on any glue used in the hobby.

    For those of you having issues with the nozzle clogging, use a lighter and heat the metal tip it will unclog within a few seconds. just be careful where you do this because it usually shoots a little flaming glue out when it breaks free. Hope this helps. If I remember correctly I saw this tip in a youtube video shortly after the release of the glue gun.

    Thanks for your feedback, we will add plastic nozzles with glue gun in the future. With a cap, it could prevent the air from coming in. Therefore, it could prevent the nozzle clogging.

    Any way to get these if we already own the glue gun?

    I love the glue gun but I too don't like the tips. I don't see any need of having that fine of a tip so I don't use them anymore. I just remove the blue cap on the tube, squirt out what I need and then replace it.

    Hi, thanks for your support. The plastic nozzles have not been formally launched yet. For USA users, you could contact our
    local distributor Coralvue, www.coralvue.com/support for launch date and details.

    I bought the coral hand saw and tried to use it on a Trachy base, its usless its basicly a tree pruner with very small teeth, suppose it would work on soft live rock.
    I do like those one-shot glue grenade packs.
