3 Tips You Need When Buying an Upholstery Tool

3 Tips You Need When Buying an Upholstery Tool

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.
