Stanley Electric Staple Gun Review

The Stanley Nail Gun is a heavy-duty electric staple/brad nail gun with outstanding driving power. It’s capable of driving 1/2-inch, 9/16 inch and 5/8 inch staples and brads with ease. The tool features an easy-to-use design that requires minimal effort to drive the staples and brads into your materials. This makes it perfect for both professional contractors as well as do-it-yourselfers who are looking for a powerful, fast way to complete their projects.

This is an awesome tool that is great for a variety of applications. I’ve used it in my work and I’ve also used it to build furniture around the house. It has two power settings, so you can use hard materials or soft materials without having to switch out any parts. The Hi setting provides enough power to drive nails into hard wood with ease. The Lo setting gives you enough oomph to drive nails through softer woods like pine, but not as much as the Hi setting. It comes with an 8-foot cord and a depth adjustment guide so you can ensure that your nails are driven to the correct depth every time.

The Stanley Nail Gun is a heavy-duty electric staple / brad nailgun that delivers outstanding driving power with every shot. Whether you’re a professional contractor or a DIY enthusiast, this tool is perfect for any job that requires quick, reliable nailing. With its precision engineering and durable construction, the Stanley Nail Gun is built to last and make your work easier.
