    We recently ordered a Dewalt heat gun from ebay, it's arrived but as it was from Germany it has a two pin plug on it, there are so many kinds of mains adaptors we don't know what to get???

    As said, chop it off and fit a standard 3 pin plug.

    Schuko plugs do not contain a fuse so if something goes wrong it takes the whole circuit with it as opposed to just the plug top fuse.

    The heat gun will have a rating on it, use this to determine what size fuse to fit.

    Divide the rating by 230 to give you a ball park For example: 2000w/230V=8.69 amps so a 10 amp fuse should be used.
