Stanley Bostitch 97 Series Stapler (4-16mm) 21697B-E

Furniture manufacture is no match for the Bostitch 97 Series!

Presenting the Stanley Bostitch 97 Series Air Stapler; known also as the 21697B-E. and the Bostitch 93. This pneumatic workhorse is perfect for heavy duty industrial use in furniture framing, cabinet manufacture, and attaching spring to frame. Considering its effective heavy duty application skills inclusive of shoe manufacturing, the 21697B-E is extremely lightweight compared to others in its category, weighing in at around 0.8kg!

Bostitch are really taking the ‘small but mighty’ phrase literally here! In terms of useful features, the stapler has a safety on the trigger to prevent any accidental driving; a bottom-load magazine for easy reloading; a rear exhaust to deflect any debris; and the 21697B-E even comes with power control so you can adapt the driving power to your material or desired finish. This excellent Bostitch stapler works with our equally brilliant Galvanised 97 Series Staples in lengths from 4mm to 16mm, which work fantastically for indoor projects.
