I had often wondered about the Pink ATG, which is significantly cheaper, also made by 3M, and appears to be the same tool as the 714. I’ve read that the 714 is made for commercial use and the Pink ATG is made for consumers. I had an opportunity to sit down with both guns to compare them. There appears to be no difference in function. Same tape, same threading, same application, same structure. I even took one of my refills and put it into the Pink ATG and it was the same. The only difference I could tell was weight. The 714 seems just slightly, slightly lighter than the Pink ATG. Is it worth the difference in price? I would vote no.
Don’t forget that today is the last day to let me know what craft box you are interested in for my Crafty Items Sale. I’ve been updating the post with the most popular boxes. I will draw the names on Wednesday. Good luck!
Anyway, enjoy the tutorial and have a great week!
