The Swedish-made SpotHeater SH1000 is used and favoured by Allback in their own workshop in Sweden for removing old paint, varnish, and glue. It is fast, efficient, and safe, heating from the inside out and minimizing lead vapours and dust. It is built on Swedish design principles: high-quality and totally functional with no unnecessary parts.

The SpotHeater is designed for hand-held use, but the threaded attachment points at either end of the unit allow for a wide range of creative hands-free options. The accessory SpotHeater Support Bar also allows you to position the tool and direct the heat at just the right angle to work hands-free.
