exactly what he wanted
I purchased this a couple of years ago and never opened it until today. I loaded the staples and went to use it... it wouldn't 'fire'. When I further investigated and discovered there were no screws holding this POC together! The entire thing fell apart in my hands with springs and parts flying. A total piece of ****, don't waste your money. I am headed off to **************, nothing there could be as bad as this Craftsman Garbage!
I bought it to try it and it works great, add the moment I arrive home I begin to use it and it work very good, so i fixed some things at home
Bought this to staple a seat, when I tried to use it it would not fire. The plastic body was spitting apart and when I checked the screws holding it together half of them were stripped.
I returned it to the store to exchange it and while at the register I noticed the replacement was already missing a screw. I then got a third one which would staple properly roughly half the time, it would miss or spit out three at a time or the loading door would fly open when pulling the handle.
Don't waste your time.
This is a very nice light-weight staple gun and brad nailer. The housing is all plastic, but it is nicely made. It seems to be easy to use. I would not suggest it for heavy duty applications, but it should be fine otherwise. The handle is cleverly hinged at the front, which means that you should get better stapling. There will be downward force when the handle is pressed. Traditional back-hinged staplers tend to lift a little. The packaging photo shows that staples and brads are included. That is not true. At least the one I purchased on sale does not include any staples or brads. There are two stickers indicating that they are sold separately.
I needed this stapler to reattach furniture cover. I have an air gun stapler however the gauge of that a Irgun stapler is too think and much heavier duty than needed especially if I needed to take that apart again. Bought this stapler and it did the job. It comes with different size staplers so if your job is not too huge, you won't need to buy extra staplers.
I've been looking for a stapler gun for quite some time now. I picked this one up at Sears and I am very happy with it. It's easy to use and does not require a lot of force to fire. A bonus is that it can also be used as brad nailer.
I have only used the Craftsman Stapler a few times and I'm very happy with the results. The plastic on the top part of the stapler is deformed though, so I'm only giving it 4 stars. Quality control should have caught the defect.
