I researched these and they suffer from the same problem all the inexpensive guns do.. they don’t reliably punch the staple/nail all the way home.

Does depend what you are nailing into of course.

I find myself in need of one of these. Did you find a good value one that does the job? Cheers Si

No, my assessment is that nailers/staplers need to create a massive force of driving power in an instant and only the expensive ones work reliability. ~£200+

The only cheap options are air powered.. if you already have a compressor.
Thanks for the reply. Si
After 3 months of using this stapler regularly an going through ~10k staples I will say it never missed a beat. I believe it doesn't drive staples all the way in only if used incorrectly. You need to press the stapler against the surface as strong as you possibly can in a given scenario. It causes all the energy from the motor to go to a staple. When held gently it almost never will drive a staple even into soft wood. I really like mine and for 10 quid you can't really go wrong. Staples are also peanuts.

Good to hear it’s working for you! Agree on the process you describe. On soft materials there is a risk of leaving an imprint of the nailer head on the material though.

No problem if you are stapling fabrics.. could be annoying if you are nailing a finished material.
I should have mentioned that. You are completely right with imprints. So if you you would have stapled area visible in finished product I wouldn't recommend using it. Still, how much can you possibly expect from a stapler costing £9.99. I've seen office staplers twice aa expensive lol.

Depends. I used a £6 Lidl staple gun and 8mm flat crown staples from Axminster to recover 6 dining chairs in faux leather and it worked nicely. Granted about 10% of the staples didn't go all the way but for the price job done. Trick is to press the gun down
hard before squeezing the handle so all the power goes into the staple, not the kickback.

Having said that, next time would use an electric stapler.

I'm not impressed by mine. Staples don't fire every time and sometimes they get stuck in the mechanism. OK for very occasional use if you're strapped for cash.
I bought this and returned it. The nails are very thin and small . I thought I could insert some to sort my gate out but this is something else

My research found a bigger version of this stapler they sometimes offer, PHET 25. But previous comments on cheap staplers still apply.
Slightly OT but has anyone got or used a Lidl or Aldi pneumatic staple gun at all??
I'd love the dewalt nailers but have to be realistic its never going to be viable for me to buy them, so air seems to be the way to go...
I found one of these in my shed last week and its scary! I only touched the trigger and it was like a semi auto rifle. The speed the pins fired out was a shock. I tried to mend the roof of my bird box and the force of it sent half the roof flying clean off
Its a Tacwise

I have this larger stapler, and yes, leaving imprints is a problem, and it too, doesn't drive home all the nails and staples.
Have to go around with a hammer and knock them in.

However imprints in wood can be somewhat reversed by adding a little water.
I bought one in 2016. It is still working after approx 6.500brads.
You need to press it firmly - and I mean firmly - against teh surface and then brads/staples go all the way in. Hold it lossely and it will no -- operator error"

I use it to make up frames for beekeeping - compared to hammer jobs, it reduces time by 75%..
A dry silicon spray from car shops is ideal if and when it sticks.

Unbeatable for the money...
