Title: Which hand stapler ,plier type do you use?
Post by: forsailbyowner on April 08, 2011, 08:04:53 AM
Doing a 60 guage strataglass job and having more staples bend than penetrating. What model/make stapler do you use? Looking at Bostitch STCR2619. Wondering if something like the B8HDP Heavy-Duty Plier Stapler would have too thick a wire and would leave noticeable puncture marks. TIA

This is similar to the one I use but it is chrome and a different brand.

I think I bought mine off Amazon for a whole lot less money. It works great and the holes are not to big.

What are you stapling and why? windows? Hmmmm. 60ga. Hope you have a servo motor cus you're gonna need to sew that real slow too. I have the bostich. Works great on vinyl and sunbrella , never used on clear vinyl though.

Im using tape but the tape only holds the sunbrella marginally, im putting an occasional staple in it to avoid the movement of the facing. Its aggravating when lining up both sides to find the bottom piece had moved while sewing and the stitches miss the fabric,
