So I've bought Chinese glue gun at ebay, but it had incompatible power plug and terrible cable.
I decided to replace wire and plug. I disassembled gun, and saw that wire goes straight to tip (which usually melts glue). But when I took metallic clip which was pressing to place where cable ended, I suddenly drop it.
I look what was there: yellow insulator (that plastic wrap which is hard to melt), 2 "golden" plates (connected to wires), and one metallic plate (looks like aluminum, sure it's not nichrome).
So looks like that metallic plate should be between "golden" ones. But here is the problem: It has only 0.07 ohm resistance when assembled back.
I've thought that original cable has resistance, but then wires should heat more then heater, but i checked anyway -- its 0.
Then I heat tip with solder till it started melting glue to check if resistance increases a lot with heat, but resistance still was very close to 0.
Looks like it's unsafe to use it because it'll be short circuit.
Am I right? Maybe I just assembled it wrong? Should I try to test it?
