Can you set it so it will not punch all the way down to the wood? Can you use this to staple wires, Christmas lights, anything with electricity running through it?

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FANTASTIC STAPLER!! My project was covering a 660 sq. ft. by 10' wall high shop with vapor barrier. I stapled 2 layers of 30# felt paper and then used one layer of house wrap on top of that. I started stapling the felt paper with a hand stapler. The exterior walls used 5/8" plywood for sheathing. After having to hammer every other staple flush on one section of the wall, I decided to upgrade to a hammer type stapler. I decided to go with the red and grey lightling bolt brand's hammer stapler. I did so because I am a Milwaukee tool user and believer of the quality of their products. Unfortunately, sometimes the old adage of sticking to one thing and do it right is good to live by Milwaukee. That hammer tacker wans't your their finest moment. I saw the Porter Cable pneumatic stapler and decided to go with it. I was so glad that I did!! Now remember, this was going to bemy third tool that used in finishing up the vapor barrier so I was a bit skeptical. I was truly amazed how much strength this stapler has. Yes, its pneumatic so the only real fuss was having to contend with the air hose, which is common to any air tool. Outside of the air hose issue, this tool was EXCELLENT! I would really recommend this Porter Cable stapler to anyone that will be doing lots of stapling. I had no jams and every stapler went in flush! No having to go back and hammer shallow staples! Granted, I did go through two 5000 count boxes and that to me was proof enough that this stapler is tough to do any job! If you can relate to any of the issues I have written about and you're looking for a good stapler, don't look any further. Get this one! You'll be glad you did. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works good! Only used for about an hour so far, but works flawlessly. Drove several hundred 3/8" staples without a miss. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stapler for upholstery projects Looked everywhere for a stapler that would work for my upholstery project. This product fit all of our needs and performed better than expected. Easy to use. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase Works like a champ, and cheap too. Far better purchase over the spring loaded type. Used very small air compressor worked fine. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ez To Use Used it today w/hardware cloth I recently purchased. Dog ripped thru some lattice-work & made her escape. Got out stapler & cloth, half hour later, no problem. Wow was she MAD!! June 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Toolguy I used it 3 times than it stopped working. plastic spring retainers broke. spring pressure on thin plastic parts is JUST PLAIN STUPID. No more Porter-Cable in my shop. April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 18- Gauge Pneumatic 3/8 in. Crown Stapler. Bought this stapler to reupholster a 4 wheeler seat, Worked great. Also plan on upholstering some chairs. I worked in a furniture shop and had a heavy stapler. Wish this would of been around. April 26, 2016
