Stapler


Random question - any recommendations for a staple gun for NM cable (12 and 14 AWG)? Or are they all the same?

Individual staples and a hammer. 3M stackers or equivalent for multiple cables.

Guess you don't like the staple guns?

I've never used one, thought it might make my life easier.

Save your money on the stapler and the cost of the staples and buy something else that will be useful in the future like a quality drill.

I have a staple gun for NM wire and absolutely love the thing. It works and works very well. The staples aren't overly expensive in the grand scheme of things. It has a metal guide that lays over the NM wire and guides you on where to shoot.

I still carry regular staples but for working in tight spots it is unbeatable. $35 well spent in my opinion.

Can't think of the name brand and I have a sleeping baby on me or I'd go downstairs and get the name brand for you. It is red and black and I know I bought it at Home Depot.
