Will this stapler staple cardboard? Looking at using it for shipping products. I would fold single wall cardboard in half and staple it together. PS what size staples. Thanx


talk with your local office suppliers or good hard ware shop for longer staples for the machine
the problem you will have to consider is the length behind the staples that will restrict how far down the sides of the container you can staple
box and carton staplers are available on line , are foot operated and have considerable depth for the purpose of containers and boxes or there may be a local supplier that will have a machine better suited for what you want to do.

How to adjust depth on bostich mk111fs


There is no depth adjustment on this tool -
If the staples are going too deep - most likely the piston (#17) has threaded off the driver inside the tool, you have a broken piston bumper (#62) inside, or the teflon foot pad (#56) on the bottom of the tool is the wrong thickness for the flooring you are using.
If the staples are not driving far enough - most likely you have a broken / chipped driver blade (#21) or the teflon foot pad (#56) on the bottom of the tool is the wrong thickness for the flooring you are using.

Our staples won't go all the way through . We


You didn't list the make and model of your stapler but if it's not driving the staples flush with the surface here are some possible causes:
1. The wood; If you are driving long staples into hardwood or knotty lumber you may have to use shorter staples to see how they set.
2. Stapler settings; Turning the air pressure up isn't the answer to driving staples deeper, it is only harder on the stapler. Most staplers work in the 90 to 120 psi range. The lower pressure you use the longer your stapler will last. Check/adjust the depth of drive control on the stapler to determine where the top of the staple is driven to.
3. Broke stapler; If it's not driving them to the proper depth but the level they are driven to is consistant, you may have a damaged piston o-ring/seal or the end of the driver is broken off. You'll have to go into the gun or take it to a service center to check these things.

My stanley tre500 shoots like a semi automatic weapon. Is it adjustable? Thanks Nancy


Hi Nancy,

Do you mean it rapid fires, or do you mean fires the staples to deep?
If it fires too deep, the adjustment for that is on the back of the gun. The + and - give more/less depth. Adjust it towards the - direction to get the brad/staple to no penetrate as far.

Thanks,

Handie Andie

Is there a depth adjustment r tension adjustment


As far as I can tell this unit does not have an adjustment. Normally such an adjustment would only be included on much more expensive and specialised units generally listed for professional use.
If you need more pressure then hitting the tack with a hammer is the general answer.
If you need less pressure, i.e. the tack is cutting through the insulation/wire you are tacking then a cushion may help.
Suggestions for cushion material include one or more layers of paper or a thin (e.g. 3mm) piece of neoprene foam. After tacking the wire in place the foam/paper can be removed almost completely to produce the desired result - a tacked wire with no damage.
Hope this helps. For more power I favour the Stanley PowerShot series: they are absolute brutes and shoot most variations of staples, tacks and nails.

TRE 500 Staples don't go in deep enough.


Dial controls depth. Set it to "+." Watch out setting isn't accidently changed during use. Tre500 isn't powerful enough for hardwoods, etc.

Staple problem


pull about 1 inch of staples out of the cartridge, tear off the 1 inch so new staples are flush with plastic cartridge. Reinstall and make 10 stapled sets. By the time it tries to staple set number 3 or 4 you should start to see the staples working. It could take as many as 8 or 9 sets for the staples to advance far enough. Once it staples you are all set/
