The Starter Set contains:
- 1 variable-temperature heating gun used to dispense knot filler.
- 1 aluminum cooling block, 80mm x 180mm / 3 x 7 inch dimensions with handle. This tool is used to draw heat out of the hot filler and solidify your repair.
- 1 wide steel Knot Filler flat-bottom chisel with birch handle. After applying the cooling block, the chisel is used to remove excess filler from the repair surface.
- 1 starter bag of Knot Filler rod, which contains a variety of colors designed to help you find which works best for your shop. Each pack contains 4 rods of our most popular colors: 1 Black, 1 Mahogany, 1 Pine Light, and 1 Semi-Transparent/Knot. Try them all, and see which you like the best for your pieces.
Step 1: Load the Knot Filler rod into your gun, and turn it on. Wait for your knot filler gun to heat to the melting point of your chosen Knot Filler color (table below)
Step 2: Use the gun to apply the filler to the wood imperfection. Be sure to apply slightly more at the end of the repair.
Step 3: Use a cooling block to cool down the hot material. Place it on the filled imperfection and let stand for about 30 to 60 seconds, depending on the size of the repair.
Step 4: Using a knot filler chisel, remove any excess filler.
Step 5 (optional): Lightly sand the newly-filled imperfection to blend it and achieve a natural-looking repair.
Our users love these colors for projects like flooring, tabletops, reclaimed wood slabs, and other furniture pieces. These colors can allow you to disguise a knot, or highlight it with contrast for an artistic look. All colors can be painted and stained, which gives you even greater flexibility.
The lower melting temperature knot fillers are great for a quick application- apply, chisel and go. A very light or hand sanding can be applied to finish the repair.
Our medium range temperature variants are the most popular types- they balance the ability to be cut and shaped post-repair with being firm enough to be sanded.
