Which reupholstery staple gun?
I feel so stupid. I have stripped all the furniture in my home only to find I can't figure out what staple gun to buy to reupholster with.
I don't have an air machine or know how to use one, so I've been shopping for electric staple guns that could staple 1/8, 1/4, 3/8 & 9/16 inch wide staples. I bought a basic electric staple gun from home depot. This didn't work. Staples are much thicker then the ones I removed and won't penetrate the upholstery and wood anyway. When I search upholstery staplers, I can't find any that shoot 1/8" crown staples, I don't know how to determine the thickness of the staples it will shoot, and I think the measurement of staple it shoots may actually be the length not the width of the staple. I was also surprised at how expensive the ones on line were. Found $200-$1500, ouch!
Can anyone short cut me to what I am trying to find, both staple wise and staple gun? I'd so appreciate any help.
