I am working on some Louis XVI chairs that have a channel that is about 1/4" wide around the seat and back pad. I have discovered that the nose of my stapler is too thick to fit inside the channel. Any suggestions - of staplers that will fit inside teh channel or other approaches?

Thank you!

In case you come back to read this here goes.
  You need to grind down the nose of your gun. If you have a grinder and are fairly proficient in its use your good to go. If not take it to someone that can do this. The metal in the tool is hardened so you need to be careful not to overheat it. So when grinding it. dip it in water every so often to keep it cool. You want to grind the front section straight across to the point where it will fit the groove with enough play to allow the thickness of fabric to also be there. Thats it. No need for any special stapler just an adjustment. I've had to do a couple of them through the years and they work fine.
