What’s a staple gun? It’s one of the most useful tools that a handyman can have in his toolbox – a small, handheld device that’s capable of forcing staples into materials like wood, plastic, and all sorts of heavy fabrics. One can purchase either an electric or a pneumatic staple gun, both of which are highly efficient and can be used for upholstery, insulation, and a wide range of other materials.
Bottom-Loading Electric Staplers
In case you don’t know where the magazine is, find where the staples are coming out of your model. The button should be on the side that’s contrary to the place where the staples are discharged. Also, don’t forget to unplug your model before releasing the magazine.
A great way to test out your electric staple gun is to do some stapling on a piece of wood. The scrap piece of wood should be of the same thickness as are the materials you intend to use your new tool on. For example, if you intend to do stapling on the particle boards, you should test your machine on a scrap piece of a particle board or on a piece of wood with the same thickness.
Top-Loading Pneumatic Staplers
If your particular model features a safety trip, don’t forget to put it in place. Its purpose is to prevent the tool from discharging staples while you’re reloading.
