Electric staplers


Looking for some ideas for an electric staple gun.
I would like to pay about $ 40.00 or less as this is a tool I just want to have laying around for it's use when needed.

I just received an " Arrow" ET2025 as a gift. I'm glad I have a gift receipt with it !
I loaded it with the 3/8" staples included with the gun. I grabbed a couple of waste boards one soft and one semi hard set the stapler on full plus ( high )
heavy duty and did 5 test stapelings not one staple sunk to the head all were
about 3/16" up. I was very disappointed and decided I will return it to Home Depot

So If you have an electric
staple gun that really works, one that cost about $40.00 dollars I would like to know what kind and where you bought it. If it is still available out there.

EDIT=== JUST READ ABOUT an Arrow ET 50 RED this is suppose to be more powerful ? Robut

Thanks Robut

Electric staplers


The best stapler will be to get one that controlled by an air compressor. You can get a combination set for about $59 it's a little over your budget but it's more than worth it

I have a air stapler but sometimes I want to just plug an electric one and
do a quick job. or do a small insulation job in the attic.

Electric staplers


I returned my Arrow 2025 staple gun and bought the Arrow ET 50 R..E.D.
I tried it out on three types of hard wood and I got 100% flat down staples.
. So if you want to buy a good stapler pay the extra bucks and get
the big red.by Arrow

Test with 50 foot 14 gauge extension cord worked great. I did notice that the gun had to be
completely flat to get a very good flat staple and my hand on top applying small pressure in hard wood.
