Cob Web Shooters
our webbers use 110vAC power, they can be adapted for use in other countries if you use a converter rated for up to 5 amps.
All MinionsWeb Webber models can use ANY hot glue sticks - low, high or all temperature.
The only critical criteria is they are 1/2" or 12mm (sometimes labeled 7/16")
You need an air compressor to operate all MinionsWeb web guns.
We recommend using a compressor with NO LESS THAN 4 cfm @ 90 PSI.
The guns are best with pressure set to 60 PSI at the compressor.
They are safe in excess of 150 PSI, but recommended maximum operating pressure (for good results) should never be higher than 90 PSI.
We suggest the compressor be with an 8 gallon tank minimum.
We do exhibit our guns at some shows using a compressor with a 4 gallon tank, smaller can be done.
At other shows we will use house air (regulated down to 90 PSI from their feed) and a reserve tank (see the effects product page if you would like to order one).
At home we use our Sears Craftsmen 26 gallon compressor.
a tire inflator will not work.

Sizing Webbers for your needs:
you will be applying webbing outside, in climates where
the temperatures may drop below 70 when you will be shooting
your webbing, you will want to use a higher wattage webber. Please contact us to discuss your webber needs and we will make sure you have the appropriate webber for your application.

The MW-1 will need to reheat often as the outdoor temps cool to or below 70°. You will be able to put 2-3 glue sticks thru it before reheat is needed at that temperature.
MW-C will need to reheat often as the outdoor temps cool to or below 60 °. You will be able to put 6-10 glue sticks thru it before reheat is needed at that temperature.
other models do not have these restrictions, but be sensible.
The MW-C, MW-CCL and MW-P can shoot up to 50', results may vary, please rely on ratings above.
Plug the gun into any GFCI protected grounded or polarized outlet, and allow it to warm up for until the trigger moves without resistance. Never squeeze trigger while the gun is cold.
Always have a linen cloth (or other lint free material) in the opposite of your shooting hand to carefully wipe excess glue from the gun tip.
shooting webbing, test on items with delicate finishes,
newly painted surfaces, and fabrics, in a small inconspicuous
area before cob-webbing everything.
When shooting on walls/ceilings, it is not necessary, but we recommend applying a scrim
This provides the webbing a rough to get a hold of, cheesecloth works
great for this.
The webbing will adhere to walls and
ceilings, but clean up is easier if you use a scrim layer.
We recommend a drop cloth on the floor when spraying walls
When applying webbing over fabric surfaces, shoot the webbing from the furthest distance possible, this allows the webbing to cool substantially before landing on the surface minimizing the chance it will adhere to the fabric. Avoid shooting webbing on fabrics with open weaves.
We do not advise it, but, we have had customers request information on how to apply webbing to a person.
YOU MUST DO SO WITH GREAT CARE. The glue comes out of the gun over 385° and will cause severe burns.
Shoot cobwebs OVER the person in question from a distance greater than 10' at very low pressure. Allow the webbing to drape over the person. Never shoot the webbing at uncovered flesh, at the eyes, or delicate areas.
When shooting outside, use the wind in your favor, always shoot to downwind, this will let the webbing carry further.
up is as simple as pulling off the webbing and wadding it
On walls and ceilings, it is easiest to rub the
webbing off with your fingers.
Difficult to remove spots
can be chilled with an ice pack or cube to facilitate clean
Warrantee & Support:
Yep, warrantee 1 yr from purchase (don’t pull triggers when they are cold dammit, I don’t warrantee that!).
We completely support your use of our webbers, via phone, email or in person.
Many people can tell you I have done infinite letters and phone calls with them to make sure they figure out how to shoot webs.
I have taught previous buyers in the middle of trade shows, gone to haunts to teach owners and crews how to use them. I taught Gadget in my basement.
We will be producing an instructional video shortly (posting both on the website and shipping copies with cobwebbers). You can also download instuction sheets as shipped with the webbers here.
We stand behind what we manufacture.
All Minions Webbers are hand made, in the US, from UL listed glue guns (not we have a sticker for that) and the airlines are rated to 400PSI.
Safety is our first concern.
You may find a similar product elsewhere, but you will never find a product that compares to ours. The MinionsWeb owner invented internal piped gun based cob webbers. We have spent years refining and improving them, plus great time and expense patenting our technology. If it isn't a MinionsWeb Cob Web Shooter, you are getting a poor knock off.
"Webs so real, they fool spiders™"
Using our webshooters will not allow you to have spiderman like web shooters
that you can swing from, if you attach these to your wrists. The only thing that will occur is severe burning.
If you are foolish enough to believe you will be able
to perform such a stunt, we suggest you have a long talk
with a professional whose opinion you trust and believe
