Why does the package say, "Finish Stapler"?

Asked by Allan March 12, 2021
1
Answer

Smaller staples for finish work like crown molding. Construction staples are too big/heavy duty for finish work. Construction staples are more for making frames, securing parts of an assembly, ie. Construction.

How are the staples loaded in this gun?

Asked by Jim July 15, 2020
4
Answers

The staples are loaded in the compartment next to the safety. There is a release button on the opposite end which causes the bottom to slide out freeing up space for new staples. Once you put new staples in (making sure to note that the pointy end should be out). Just slide the cover back over the staples till you hear a click and you are good to go! Just to be safe, I recommend doing this without the stapler connected to the air compressor.

Yes it will work for that, but you should use stainless steel Staples for that or anything outside.

would this work for carpeting

Asked by bcook October 14, 2019
2
Answers

no I would not use this for carpeting. if I were to use anything for carpet it would be the stapler. but watch as it can fold over the threads of the carpet and be visible as to where you stapled the carpet down.

is this a hard plastic case or a duffle bag case?

This thing will get the job done. I used it to build a hobby table for slot cars - specifically, I attached artificial grass matting to the table. Goes right into 19/32 OSB like it's nothing. Very good value for the price.

I love it. It doesn't penetrate 1/4" ply or 1/8" skins like A pin nailer does. Just by adjusting your air pressure a little and holds great even when glued.

used it for 2 weeks in a cabinet shop. only thing is the safety trigger. gun has to be perpendicular to the wood or it wont shoot, kind of annoying. what i like is that it will not dry fire when you run out of staples.

Nice stapler, well packaged, good features
This is a very nice stapler with a number of good features. 1. The tip is typical of most nailers / staplers. It takes a little getting used to make sure you are putting fasteners where you want them. The no-mar tips are DeWalt yellow, and I found that helpful for seeing the tip and judging placement for staples. 2. There is a selector lever that switches the tool from trigger-actuated to bump-actuated, without any tool changes or other trigger reconfigurations. The bump action worked very well. I like being able to switch it at will. 3. The male air coupling was pre-installed on the tool. Even better is that it is a ball fitting, meaning that it can rotate in a circle, about 30-degrees off center. It made moving the tool around and working at odd angles easy. 4. There is a belt hook pre-installed, but which can be easily removed. 5. There is a pencil sharpener built into the belt loop. It may be mildly frivolous, but I found it to be an ingenious use of space on the tool. 6. The handle is nicely sized. I have small to medium sized hands and this nail gun is very easy to hold. 7. The case is hard plastic. It's slightly large so it takes up some space, but it will keep the tool safe. 8. It will accept a variety of staple sizes (up to 1-1/2"). Remember that this is a 1/4" crown stapler, so the staples are not huge (by which I mean "wide"). They should do well for most light and some medium duty work, but they are narrow (hence the name, narrow crown stapler!). The tool only comes with 100 nails. I would have thought more. Overall, it's a great tool, and it has some great features.

Nice Stapler
Very Lightweight and easy to use. I'm replacing a 40 year old Stapler with this Dewalt. I've been building counter tops for that long and need a new stapler. Wish it had a rear foot on it to keep it flat and stable against the work piece, but I think it will work out fine. Nice case. Trouble in shipping. Check out picture.

Super easy to use, powerful. Used it for the whole day putting up OSB board (100's of nails) and it only jammed 3 times, all of which took seconds to clear. You do need to play around with the depth dial, and the pressure coming from your compressor to get the depth right, but this is to be expected given you are dealing with 4 variables (the dial, compressor, wood you are nailing, and wood you are nailing into).
