Why you Need a Tough Staple or Nail Gun from Miles

A staple or nail gun is a handy tool to have as part of your collection and there is so much you can do with this tool, so it's a good idea to purchase one that meets your demands.




There is plenty of different stapler and nail gun models on the market but only a few are decent heavy-duty and live up to their name. I have used plenty of staplers that fall short when it comes to actual projects. Until recently, I was using the Bosch Tacker for most of my upholstery projects but being unable to source replacement staples and finding that you can't find this model easily (if it is not discontinued) has meant that I must look at alternatives.







I have used the Stanley Sharpshooter, but it is hard to work with this due to the amount of pressure that needs to be applied and your fingers ache very quickly. The next one I tried was the Miles Heavy-Duty Stapler. It doesn't require as much pressure to shoot the staple deeply into whatever material you are using including pine moulding or trim on wooden cabinets and cupboards, leather upholstery and, something I do often, making picture frames.



Need to fasten wood trim or moulding onto timber or board backing? Only a heavy-duty stapler or nail gun will be able to tackle this type of project.





Anyone who enjoys making their own picture frames needs a heavy-duty stapler that will join trim or moulding onto timber or board. If you are using hardwood or a board product such as supawood, only a heavy-duty stapler will do the job.




When tackling upholstery projects, don't forget to take into consideration the material that the piece is made from. Chipboard is fine but anything else, wood, plywood, supawood, etc., requires a heavy-duty stapler.
