Wagner FURNO 500 Heat Gun

The Wagner FURNO 500 heat gun is great for all sorts of DIY projects and home repairs. The heat control system allows you to perform a wide variety of tasks without worrying about overheating something.

What can you do with the FURNO 500?

The FURNO 500 has a ton of great uses. Our favorite is the capability to give wooden build projects a burned effect. The ability to give a light char to wood gives your projects a rustic vibe in a matter of minutes.

How does the FURNO 500 work?

What’s great about the FURNO 500 compared to other heat guns we’ve used is the variable temperature and fan speed control. The FURNO 500 has a temperature range of 150 degrees to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. You easily control the temperature with up and down buttons and can also control the fan speed with two different buttons.

To use the FURNO 500, set your temperature and fan speed (it comes with a handy guide for common projects and what setting you should use) and then move the gun’s tip slowly along the work area. Move in a slow, side to side motion to get the best results.

Adding wood burned effect with Wagner FURNO 500

The safest feature is the FURNO 500’s cool down function. When you’re done working, you simply hit the power button… but it doesn’t turn off! It switches to blowing cool air through the heat gun for several minutes to cool the unit down, then shuts itself off. It is super convenient and much safer. Since it stands up on its own, you don’t have to worry about it!

Wagner FURNO Series

Wagner has three different heat guns in the FURNO series, allowing you to choose your price point and what level of output you need. We think that the 500 is a great option, right in the middle, with tons of versatility and is very user-friendly.
