1. The wood may be too hard for the staples to penetrate

2. The stapler drive spring may have ghotten weak

3. You may not be holding the stapler nose firmly against the wood while stapling

My T50 would fire ONE 1/4" staple correctly and then jam, eating 3 or 4 and after digging those out do it all again. This was one staple eating machine!!.. I disassembled the thing, making some mechanical adjustments which allow only enough room for smooth feeding of ONE staple at a time and now it NEVER misfires or jams. These adjustments will take careful thought and filing of the end of the staple tray nearest the firing pin, along with slight bending of the firing pin to lay flat again the outside head cover. I also filed the outside "tips" of the firing pin to be absolutely flat where it contacts the staple. DO NOT shorten the firing pin if possible. Now I can get even 9/16" staples to go all the way in. :)

SOURCE: Tr250 does not drive brad nails all the way down.

Jason,

I think this is typical of these staplers/nailers. I bought a lighter model Stanley the first time and had this problem. I took it back and exchanged it for the heaviest Stanley they had at Home Depot and had the same effect. It drove the stapler a little deeper but not all the way.

I did find that if I put all the down pressure on the stapler right on the edge where the staple comes out and then pull the trigger it would drive the staple almost all the way in. I think that there is a recoil effect (like with a gun) when you pull the trigger and the staple enters the wood. Try this. it will help.


Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks for using FixYa

SOURCE: the staples don't go in far enough

Either the pioston backed off piston stem or the blade is broken. remove 4 bolts holding shoe to yellow body. remove magazine and shoe. remove yellow bumper inside gun. Pull piston down and inspect blade. if not broken see if piston backed off stem. if so gun must be rebuilt and part # BC347 must be replaced. visit www.bostitch.com and download schematic and where parts can be obtained.

T59 arrow stapler doesnt set staples all the way into wood


Is this just on one piece of wood or does it act that way on all kinds of wood? Some wood is denser that others and that would cause the staple to not go completely into the wood.

The side of the staper lists 3 different staple sizes, does it really take all 3? (1/4, 3/8, 1/2 inch)


Samantha, Yes. These sizes are the lengths of the legs. They are all the same size wire, bent into the same width of "U". Yes, it will take all 3, but you have to buy the right type. When you buy staples, look for compatibility with this brand & model stapler. By the way, if you a stapling something thin to something substantial (such as paper to wood), use short staples. Otherwise you will have difficulty getting the staple to penetrate the wood sufficiently for the staple to lay flat. Good luck, Al K

How do you adjust the staple size to load 1/2" or 1/4" staples?


Staple guns can use a variety of staples; the width of the staple is fixed, the lengths vary from 1/4" up (usually in 1/8" increments). You don't need to adjust the staple gun for the different lengths, just be sure the width fits your gun since some manufacturers have used brand-specific staples.

There are also a variety of staple types; there are staples for ceiling tile, electric wire, window screening, etc. My favorite staples for wood have the tips cut on a sharp angle, they penetrate wood well. Some staple types require a particular gun, I have a gun that shoots only round-top staples for small cables like phone & thermostat wire.

Staple Gun Troubleshooting


Most of the staple gun models lack an "anvil" — the metal plate with curved slots that office staplers use to bend the legs of the staple inwards and flattens them against the paper. Staples set with a staple gun retain their straight legs, and are held in place only by static friction of the legs against the compressed surrounding material, much like common nails. Indeed, some staple gun models can handle brads and nails as well as staples. Some staple guns also use divergent point staples where the legs twist as the staple drives into the surface providing superior holding power.
