This is the new Milwaukee M18 cordless heat gun, and it is the hottest new tool announced at this year’s new tool media event. Literally!
It came as a surprise to everyone, but follows years of heavy user requests. I quite frankly didn’t think it could be done, and am eager to see what this first-of-its-kind cordless tool can do.
The new M18 cordless heat gun can reach an operating temperature of 1000°F, and Milwaukee says it can reach that temperature in half the time as a corded solution.
We have more to say about the new cordless heat gun at a later time; this was more of a teaser to have some fun with the title. =)
ETA: September 2017
The second hottest new tool release? A pivoting head cordless soldering iron that we’re just as excited about.
Update: Until our preview post goes up, here’s a quick look at the Milwaukee M12 cordless soldering iron too, from Dirck Van Lieu, @ack_workbench (via Instagram):
