    The one I have gets plenty hot. I spent a couple hours using it to remove paint from a wood floor the other day. I had to dial down the temp when edges of the floor started burning.

    I'm gonna have to get me one of those. They must also make them for Dremel, Rotozip I would think.

    Today the wet spot is now dry;I dont understand how that could happen;but...................Im gonna leave it for about a week and then hook the new faucett up.... what are the chances it will leak when I turn the water on or did it just seal itself?

    Sometimes on older valves they'll leak when you open or close them at the packing nut.
    If it stops after a bead or two of water, I wouldn't worry.
