Buy heat resistant gloves! I hate hot glue. Use Krazy glue. it dries in seconds (or is it gorilla glue) either way make sure you have it right the first time. but seriously buy heat resistant gloves if you need to use hot glue because that **** hurts man. As a last resort id use and oven mitt. oh you could cut a pot holder to match your hand then tape it on. that way your probably not going to get burnt unless your unlucky and you have full hand mobility.
