Good for a starter (1776). I purchase stapler to redo a chair that I own. While handling the stapler it kept slipping out of my hand, because the surface was so slick. When I got over that, my job became so much easier putting the fabric back on the chair. The other thing is that after I finish, I had to tap the stapler with a hammer to go flush into the seat of the chair. The staplers may have been too long, or wood may been too hard, not sure. (1776)
Works great, but instructions are unclear. This gun gets the job done and is versatile because you can use a variety of staples to fit your needs. Unfortunately you need to be somewhat familiar with staple guns to figure out what the directions are picturing you do to load it. And I never did figure out how to use the thing that came with it, what it is for, or even what it is.
Did exactly what I needed it to do, and Easy to use!! I had decided to redo my dining room chairs and recover the seats, so I got the material and checked to see how it was put on by what was there. So I needed to get myself a staple gun. I did get one (Stanley) which would not staple for about 3 of us so I took it back.. Then my choices were Arrow or Bostitch. So I chose the the Arrow, got it home put the staples in it and I had 8 new chairs in no time. I will be recommending your product above any others to my friends.
Why I only use Arrow products. I have used arrow staplers for the last 25 years as always I wont purchase any other brand due to its reliability, power, and durability. In the last 20 years I have installed 100s of 1000s of linier ft of metal corner beads the only staple gun with enough power to penetrate the metal bead has been the t 50 its always been the right tool for the job. Thanks arrow for a great product.
Still a great buy for the price. This is my third T50, have two others at home. Needed one for work. Glad to see still made in USA, a major + in my book. Still a little tough to squeeze in tight areas, mainly upside down, but works well. Easy to load staples. I tried another brand, (craftsman pro) and the squeeze was a little better, but the overall impression wasn't any better. It's also made here.
Great for around the house usage. This is a great little staple gun. I bought it to put up christmas lights on the cheap, but I've been able to use it for several projects. It doesn't have the best driving power (example; stapling the backing on a TV cabinet, the staples stuck about ~1/8th inch out of the wood), but that's easily fixed with a hammer and 30 seconds of your time. It's a great staple gun at a great price, and you won't be disappointed for your DIY around the house usage.
