High temperature glue hurts a lot more when you burn yourself.  LOL.

We use high temp here at the shop, and it gets really hot.  I use low temp at home for my wedding projects, and it works just fine!

It depends on what you want to use it for.  High temp glue isn’t good for paper and plastic that melts easily.  If you’re trying to do faux wax glue sticks, you’ll need to use low temp.  If you want to use the glue to hold things together like shells on a wreath, hi temp might be better.

Yep, I was going to say the same thing.  High temp will make your fingers hate you.  Low temp, just minor dislike.
