It’s My Toolkit here back with another useful article to keep you up to date with this ever-evolving industry.
This time, we’ve decided to take an in-depth look at one of our most popular ranges over here at Stapling and Nailing Supplies – the mighty 71 Series! (a stapler for upholstery)
Here we conclude our tool poster series. Ending with 140 Series Staple Guns
Starting with some guidance around Hammer Tackers.
Here we go into confusing 'Stapling Waters' as we look at the 90,91 and 97 Series Staplers. The differences can cause confusion as they are very close. This particular group of fasteners have meant that people have purchased incorrect Staples........So I'l try and simplify....
Following on and providing a natural progression from last weeks poster: 'Nothing Does it Like a 71 Series Stapler'. This weeks information is all about 80 Series Type Tools.
Examples of the types of questions we often get here at My Tool Kit are: 'What Staple Gun is best for Upholstery'? 'What are the Differences between Different Upholstery Staplers'?
Following on from the last 2 weeks Tool Posters on the 14 and 17 series tools. This week we examine the 71 Series Staple Gun. Arguably the most popular tool used for upholstery and DIY.
Tool owners often approach us with the following questions: " What Stapler to use for Upholstery"." Do I need an air, electric or hand stapler" "can you use a staple gun on wood" ...And so....
Here we are again with the 2nd in our Poster Series of Staple Guns.
The 17 Series Stapler. People often struggle to understand the difference between this and the 14 Series Stapler, as they are both known as heavy duty. In fact last weeks blog was dedicated to the 14 Series Staple Gun Types. Lets Talk about the 14 Series Stapler.
At last, I hear the Stapler users Say! The beginnings of our tool posters for Stapler's
A question which often comes up in the world of Staplers. Is will a staple gun go through wood? well in this case the answer is clearly yes. Tubs, Pallets, Portacabins, Sign Making, Exhibition Work, Sheds, Theatre Building and much much more. All are applications where this tool comes in to its own.
Following last weeks Tool Fest, I was having a look and a sort in the warehouse and this tool jumped out at me!. These Combination Staplersare really good value and good electric staplers. Less than 40 squid!
This week I thought I would create one of those Infographics again.So you can, save, share or print out to follow.
Customers have been messaging me to say they are finding these images easier to follow than written instructions. Causes me some head scratching, but never mind.
Now be clear about what a Headless Pinner, Fine Wire Staple gun and Narrow Crown Stapler does along with the why's and how's. Along with which fastenings are generally used with each tool type.
Should be easier to follow than any other information you can find, but as usual, please let me know if you have any suggestions.
Thought I would try and help clear up a commonly questioned area. More over it is something people often (understandingly) get confused with. That is the 2 Trigger Types found on Staple Guns and Nail Guns. Contact Triggers and Sequential Triggers.
As this is a potential safety issue, I thought it would be a sound plan to outline the differences in an easy to follow diagram. You can print off, save or/and share.
1 - Power
When you’re purchasing an upholstery stapler – make sure to consider what power is needed and what power is available. We would always recommended getting an air powered staple gun (used with a compressor) wherever possible as these have the most reliable power source and are easy to service and maintain. Electric and battery tools are another option for the DIY-ers and up-cyclers, however when used in hard wood they can have difficulty sending the staple all the way in.
Today we are looking at Tacwise 71 Series fine wire upholstery staplers. The models in question are the A7116V standard version and the A7116LN version with an extra long nose for those hard to reach applications.
Hi, it’s Chuck here!! (The guru from Stapling and Nailing Supplies)
We get a lot of enquiries from people who would like to take up upholstery as a hobby, or maybe a small business start-up, and you know what? They all have 3 things in common – 1. frustration, 2. frustration, and 3. AHHHH FRUSTRATION!!
