I've got a similar one too and suspect wrong type of staples as some that looked similar would always jam but others actually meant for this model were fine. The staples being too weak or the knob not being set correctly can also be problems. Getting replacement staples for this can be difficult. I found the right type was from Maplins before they closed and then some from CPC. Regular staples from an office stapler don't work.
I have a replica machine but a different brand. I find it wastes so much staples and I'm often having to un-jam it. Is this a common issue with these?
It's worth noting that these also fire nails and not just various staples (y)
I’ve got one of these and used it I don’t know how many times for all kinds of things. Absolute bargain at this price
Got one of these. Not sure about the rrp, but it’s really decent for the price.

The drills are weekly specials, although they seem to hang around for a while before selling out.
I want to try a Parkside Drill from Lidl. I don't have a big one near me though - do they usually sell tools all year round? Or is it a weekly special type of thing? Don't want to make a wasted journey. Thanks in advance.
Holding out for the Blakes 7 curler gun....
In short, no. It can only fire itsy bitsy nails. I bought it thinking it would do my laminate trim. Couldn’t handle that. I think it’s more a crafting type tool tbh.
Will this handle 60mm Brads ? Space 1999 and Maya. Voyager and 7 of 9. Sci-Fi Heaven.

Staple guns, always handy to have. Personal uses I can think off are putting down carpet in a cupboard and garage, artificial grass on my decking, wire on my fence to help the peas climb. Chicken wire on decking so it is not so slippy. It is not just for upholstery, never used it for that. :)
I was considering buying the Triton Nail Gun. I knows it needs plugging in and is more pricey but it might be worth it for the extra https://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb517stp-25mm-second-fix-electric-nail-gun-stapler-240v/71120
Looks like a good product but judging from the reviews, only Stanley branded staples work properly in them and not generic ones
I have this - bought it to staple on a load of roofing membrane. It's good at what it does, but does take a fair bit of pressure to squeeze I suspect there are better models out there. For this price though, I'd recommend.

Calm down darling just pointing out you wouldn't use a staple gun the same as you pointed out you wouldn't want to take an extension cable on a roof. And what you just described is exactly what a tacker should be used for (y)
What are the main tasks you'd use this for? I'm moving house v soon so I don't mind buying if it will help wit the myriad of tasks that I'm going to have to complete. Replacing shed felt sounds OK, but I've done that before with a hammer and felt tacks. What other jobs could help convince me I need this :/
I'll use what I want thanks very much. And no, I wouldn't use a tacker hammer when it's through felt/membrane onto the top of a 47mm rafter.

Agreed. Electric ones work very well. Toolstation sell a basic Titan branded electric one for 19.99 that I've used to secure damp proof course and damp proof membranes to 70mm timber. Works very well.

Yes, would have been okay but £10 must have been a clearance price and of course not available now. Also maybe just me but not keen on anything with cables trailing so a manual operated Staple Gun is just perfect for me. Not interested in battery powered models as too expensive and my use requirements are fairly light so this is perfect and much better than some cheap unknown brands that are out there.
15mm, I bought one of these for a tenner when they were last in Lidl wouldn't go back to manual
What is max size Brad nails it can fire?

Personally I would use a framing nail gun as I wouldn't trust pins to hold the board when the wind gets a bit wild in the winter
Should be fine - within spec and popular brand - also on amazon though if you can better to support local shop
Nice find. I've got some feather edge to fix and was going to hire a nail gun. This the magazine of nails you have to use on this? : https://www.toolstation.com/tacwise-brad-nail-strip/p99115#full-desc
They would work very well for that

Air stapler/nailer 9.99 instore @ Lidl Bolton£9.99LIDL Deals
Cheap but pretty decent spec air nailer ideal for anyone with a compressor. Bought in Bolton but maybe available at other locations.
On the off chance anyone checks this expired thread, what compressor would people recommend? the only small ones i can find either state tyres only, or on youtube they have large heavy compressors. anything cheap and cheerful?
Yea that's the max and the manual says recommended is between 4 to 7. The only thing it says that may impact it on smaller/cheaper compressors is the reccomended inner hose diamater which says 9mm, but I've tested it with a 6mm and a 10mm inner diameter and both seemed to work fine.
They’ll be selling air guitars next.
Max pressure is 8bar and I have one of the small compressors from Aldi which coincidentally has a max pressure of 8bar. Basically a small compressor is good enough.
According to the specs of the gun it uses around 90ml per "drive in process" so majority of compressors would be able to keep up very easily. I think you'd run out of nails/staples in the gun before you ran out of air.

This takes some serious press strength. Never tried any other brands so can't compare.
We have a few of these in the family that we bought at reduced price (The Right Price) and they are really good, especially considering the cost. They are notindustrial standard but for home use/Diy they are fine
I bought this last year and it jammed so often that I’ve given up on using it.
The genuine Stanley staples are so cheap from eBay they probably thought it wasn't worth their while (lol)
