Webcaster Gun Lets You Sling Molten Hot Webs of Hot Glue

I was at Wal-Mart yesterday because I just really felt like standing in line at a massive store with 57 checkout lanes, but on only two open. I noticed that hoards of Halloween candy and decoration are already out, so I bought some candy (for the kids mind you). If you are the sort who needs to get working on their complex Halloween decorations already, you might need to pick up the Webcaster gun.


It makes spider webs that you can use for decorating your stuff that looks better than those bags of stringy fill stuff you can get and never quite remove fully from your shrubs. I’m pretty sure this Webcaster gun is nothing more than a hot glue gun that you hook to a shop vac hose. The powerful jet of air blowing over the hot glue turns it into thin strands of molten plastic that look just like spi


It will spray 1.5 pounds of webbing per hour and ships with only one stick. A refill pack of 20 sticks will cost you $5.99 and the gun itself sells for $29.99 at ThinkGeek. Perhaps you can replicate this effect with a leaf blower and a hot glue gun.
