ELECTRIC STAPLE GUN - HOW TO DETERMINE PROPER STAPLE LEG SIZE:

In choosing the proper staple leg length for a job, there are two basic things to consider:
1. Thickness of material to be stapled.
2. Hardness of the wood.

As a general rule, in hardwood, approximately 3/16” to 1/4” penetration into the wood is sufficient, and for softwood – up to approximately 3/8”should be sufficient. The staple should be flush with the underlying surface. However, if the staple used is not flush with the underlying surface, – this means that too long a leg length has been used. In that case, we recommend the next shorter leg length for desired results.
