Safety Notes: Always set the heat gun upright after turning it off, either for a short break or for storage. Avoid laying the unit on its side after shutdown. The heat will remain in the unit and cooling will take longer. Store the heat gun ONLY after the nozzle is cool. To prevent accidental startup, unplug the heat gun before storing.

Wagner Furno 300 Uses - See Owner's Manual for Specific Usage-Based Heat Settings
Hazard: POISON Extreme care should be taken when stripping paint. The peelings, residue and vapors of paint may contain lead, which is poisonous. Any paint applied to homes before 1950 is likely to contain lead. Any paint manufactured before 1977 may contain lead. Once the paint is deposited on surfaces, hand-to-mouth contact can result in the ingestion of lead. Exposure to even low levels of lead can cause irreversible brain and nervous system damage. Young and unborn children are particularly vulnerable to lead poisoning. Before beginning any paint removal process you should determine whether the paint you are removing contains lead. This can be done by your local health department or by a professional who uses a paint analyzer to check the lead content of the paint to be removed. Lead-based paint should only be removed by a professional and should not be removed using a heat gun. Before using this product, be sure to read and understand all the usage and safety information in the Furno 300 Owner's Manual.

Wagner heat guns come in larger sizes. The 300 is good for smaller jobs with a smaller scrapping tool. It makes enough heat to burn wood if you hold it too close. Wear gloves and scrape the area being heated. When the old varnish is hot enough it will lift off with the scraper. Works better than chemical paint strippers and does not need to be neutralized when you're done. After lifting old varnish, sand with 180 sandpaper.

I replaced an older version of this product that was at least 10 years old after I accidently let the power cord lay on the hot nozzle. Initially I bought a larger more expensive model that had a rotating dial to control the temp. It was larger and quite a bit heavier. As my current project was to strip eight wooden posts about 10 feet tall taking 8-10 hours each, the heavy gun was very tiring to use. In addition the heat control was constantly being turned down and it was difficult to use in confined areas. So I searched on line for the type of gun I had before and bought another one.

For more than 20 years I have used Makita heat guns and I looked at this Milwaukee because I needed a replacement since I have worn mine out my Makita, they no longer make them, and I can no longer get the parts to rebuild them. I had hoped the Milwaukee would be a good replacement but was quite disappointed. In the catalog it looked quite similar to a Makita, but in reality it is much smaller. The Milwaukee claims to put out the same amount of heat, and it might, but it puts it out in a much smaller circle, or concentration, of heat. This requires that I move the heat gun constantly. If I had not had many years of experience with a larger yet still lightweight powerful gun I may have been happy with the Milwaukee, but I am a professional painter and finisher, and this is not a professional quality gun. Don't get me wrong about the value of this product. It does not cost very much and it may perform just fine for many years if not really worked hard. I own many Milwaukee tooks, some more than 30 years old. Unfortunatley the old stuff appears to be of a much higher quality than this gun. If you buy this gun I hope you enjoy it. Just don't expect a lot out of it. I am probably expecting it to be much better than the Milwaukee name would imply.

I STRIPPED 1/2 OF A PAINTED BOAT BOTTEM WITH 3 COATS OF PAINT IN 1/3 LESS TIME THAN IT TOOK FOR THE OTHER 1/2 USING CHEMICAL STRIPPER. THE GALLON OF STRIPPER COST ABOUT THE SAME AS THE HEAT GUN AND WITH THE GUN THERE IS NO RESIDUE.
