Pneumatic staplers are among the most versatile tools that you can own. Use them for everything from sealing cartons to laying floors to furniture construction. We offer a nice selection, so choose the right stapler, nailer and stapler accessories for your particular needs. Your first step is to decide what kind you need.
Narrow crown staplers are useful for fastening trim or molding because the construction of the staples is such that they hold your material together more securely than a plain nail would. This stapler often uses 18-gauge staples. Wide crown staplers are good for projects such as shingling a roof, attaching siding to a house, carpet pads, insulation or other jobs where a heavier duty staple is called for. They often utilize 20-gauge staples. You can also find pneumatic nailers that use either staples or nails, allowing greater versatility.
Specialized flooring staplers exist for use in laying carpet pads and the under layer of floors. They are better for these jobs because they can drive the staples flush into your wood or padding. Roofing staplers allow you to easily fasten together gutters, lay insulation or shingles and do other exterior fastening tasks.
Like all pneumatic tools, the driving force of these staplers is compressed air, which forces the staple smoothly into your project. This holds true whether you choose a narrow crown or a wide crown stapler. Look for one that vents exhaust air through the tool's handle, which prevents dust from blowing into your face. Also, choose one with a belt clip, so you can just clip it to your belt when not in use. Also, look for anti-jamming mechanisms, which help prevent misfires.
Pneumatic staplers are the true utility players of pneumatic tools. The right one can help you get your fastening tasks done right the first time.
