The Business Of Upholstery / Re: BEA Stapler Issue

I have found it is not the spring but the staple pusher that the spring clips on to. You may need to replace that. You can get them on ebay for cheap.

I bought the new Duo-Fast electric staple gun that replaced the old and I am very unhappy with it. The old gun was very well balance and had great power as with all their tools. The staple magazine is made really cheaply and the gun jams quite often. That being said, It is still the best electric gun on the market today unless someone proves me wrong... Please Do!!!!

The Duo Fast is the best although they have cheaped out on it to lighten it up. I have a cordless staple gun (Regitar) but it is big and very heavy. This cordless will sink a staple in the hardest wood. It uses #7 staples like all my guns. Another option is to get a tankless air compressor (Sears) I used them way back for doing the Ball Crawls in the Chucky Cheese Restaurants. I used the Mastri guns, they are ok for light work but will not work good with pli-grip.

Good Luck, let us know what you decide on

I wish there was a local expert but I am on the island and the owner has no time. He is paying me to do all the leg work. I will continue to search the web and check sources back in my hometown. Or I will reupholster the seat myself. There is never an easy solution. Thank you for the info, I will let you know how it all works out.

it is a 2000 Ford 350 Super duty truck. The seat foam is shot, that is why I want to replace the entire seat (chair). If I replace the cover, I would remove the old upholstery and hopefully find a replacement cover already sewn up. If I have too, I will order new vinyl and do it myself. I just wanted a quicker fix. I am a furniture upholsterer. Cars and trucks are another animal all together and I have no interest in learning that side of the trade. I will continue searching the web, I was just hoping someone here could give me some places to check out.

I have a 10 year old Chevy truck that I would like to replace the entire seat, or if I have to buy a ready made replacement cover. Anyone know where I can find these items. I do not do automotive and there is no one on the island that does them either. I just want to help this fella out without much hassle or cost. I am thinking 3-500 bucks for replacement. Comments Please

I bought my Rainco back in 1998 and still use it today. I pulled it apart, cleaned all the crud out, lubed it up and still going strong. I will need a back up though. I noticed the newer ones have a plastic magazine. I bet that throws the weight off. They cheaped out. Another great gun is Porter and Cable and it sells for $89. at International Tool Company.

Hey Sofadoc,
my gun is the same but my gun has the metal magazine. I think I need a new spring and possibly the staple pusher on the end of the spring. Thank you for everything. If you are selling the two Raincos, let me know how much. if you do not want to post here, we can work something out.

« on: February 03, 2013, 12:03:57 AM »
sta- put is a contact cement used in laminate shops. I used it years back for swiss watch displays. Excellent for high heat environments. You could use Landu adhesive from Burch fabrics and supply.

The BEA seems bulky to me and the nose is too fat, thick however you want to look at it. The Rainco has a much thinner nose, it will actually fit in the grove (channel) in the french provincial furniture. Rainco is or was a heavy gun with a lot of power that's why I like it. My gun has a metal magazine and the new is plastic, much too light for the gun. Fasco is very similar if not the same gun. The model I have is Rainco R1B 7C-16. I have also used the Portor Cable upholstery gun which is a nice gun for about $89 new and can be found at International Tool Corp in Florida http://www.internationaltool.com/  I know a lot of people you love the BEA, it is all personal feel, how you like in your hand. All the guns I have had use the same staples 71 series. I also like the pinky finger magazine release. it's much faster to load your gun with this release. Another thing I do to all my guns is to hook the gun up pull the trigger to expose the blade and grind it down even with the nose. you don't have to worry about the staple shooting thru the finer fabrics this way. look at me ramble on here. It is so nice to sit down, relax and chat with all of you.

I have a Rainco staple gun and love it, it is similar to the old Duofast. I have had mine since 1988. It needs to be rebuilt but I do not like the new magazine. I do not care for the Bea. what do you guys use and what do you recommend. I also have a very old senco with staples which I will use till I figure out what to do with the Rainco.

« on: January 27, 2013, 11:22:35 AM »

Next machine question. Do you use a serger or overlock machine (industrial) and which ones do you recommend. I was previously using a 3 thread Merrow. Looking forward to reading your comments.

Thank you,
