Which staple gun?

Your staple gun will give you years of service provided it is used correctly. Some hobby models, if plugged in too long, may overheat: To avoid this do not leave the tool plugged in for more than 2 hours per session.

 

Electric staple guns can jam if you fire them too rapidly: Please allow time for the mechanism to  return before firing the next staple. Rapid firing is for pneumatic (air) guns.

 

Electric guns are put into three categories, hobby, semi pro and professional guns.  Remember that some pressure may still need to be applied and there is a kickback on electric guns as the working mechanism is in the nose. Do not try to repeat fire too quickly or this can jam.

 

  • A hobby gun cannot be used for excessively long periods or it will overheat it will also not be as powerful as a professional gun making penetrating hard woods and mdf difficult.

 

  • Semi Pro. This is a little more powerful and can be used for longer periods.

 

  • Professional Electric gun. More powerful and  can be used for longer periods without overheating. Also it will use a professional wire staple (71 series) which come in boxes of 20,000 making individual staples cheaper. This is the same staple generally used for upholstery in a pneumatic gun.

Air (pneumatic) Guns

Obviously the outlay is a little more when setting up your kit but the advantages are many. Repeat firing is not a problem as there is only a blade to return into the nose each time rather than a spring mechanism.  Very little pressure is required when firing and there is no kickback.
