Morning Sherri,

Usually, if a tool is sending two staples out at a time, the wrong staple series is being used. Please check if the pack of staples you're using is suitable for the machine. If they are compatable, then make sure that the magazine (Where the staples go in) closes properly.

My usual analogy is: Tyres may look the same and do the same job but, you try and put a bus tyre on a bicycle - just can't do it.....

If this doesn't sort the issue out come back to me.

Regards

My gun will not shoot staples


The most common cause of the gun not firing is loading it with the wrong staples. Look at the packaging for the staples and see if it lists the gun. Staples are NOT universal and are make for specific staple guns.

It "sounds like" it is jammed. You may have to pull out the staple with needle nosed pliers. e`1

Powershot, heavy duty, forward action, staple & nail gun will not shoot staples


If you are referring to a Swingline powershot model 1000, you may try using the following staples for best results: True Value part # 659857 for 1/4" staples or True Value part # 660426 for 3/8" staples. You may also find these staples at Sears under the Sears part #: 1/4" is part # 74417 and 3/8" is part # 74418. I hope this helps, often times, using an incorrect staple will give you undesirable results.

What part do I need to remove to make a bostich MIIIFS floor stapler to shoot 2 inch staples


You shouldn't have to do anything to the MIIIFS flooring stapler to shoot 2" staples. It is designed to shoot 1 1/2" to 2" staples right out of the box. If your stapler won't feed 2" staples, check the magazine all the way up to the power head for any foreign material that may hold up your staples.

Stapler will staple ok then it will jamb and break staple in half,and driver will stick but you can put driver back and will run for a short time then has same problem. It also is breaking up staples as it...


It sounds like the gun is working properly but is having feeding problems. First, make sure you are using the proper staples for your gun. Senco makes three versions of the SKS(XP) stapler: The SKS L11-17 drives 18 gauge, 1/4" staples. The SKS M12-17 drives 18 gauge, 3/8" staples. The SKS N12-17 drives 16 guage, 7/16" staples. None of them use staples over 1 1/2" long and each gun will only shoot the staples it is set up for. If you are using the correct staples make sure the rail and nose peices are clean and the feeder shoe and staples are riding freely on the rail and the feeder spring holds them firmly forward in the gun. Lastly check the tip of the driver to make sure it is square, it should not be rounded or have any chips out of it.

The info on the gun says it will shoot many different staples, but it will only take 3/8 staples and I need to use 1/2 staples to do the job.


The T50P stapler uses T50 staples of various lengths, including 3/8, 7/16, and 1/2. Is it possible that the 1/2 inch staples you are trying to use are not T50? All T50 staples are the same width and should fit your stapler. There are several other widths of staples that are not T50, although T50 is the most common.

Every time I load my easy shot 5650 stapler they fall out the end they are supposed to shoot out...why is that ??


The way you load this staple gun is: (1) turn it upside down (2) press the unlock tabs on the rear end of the loading slide trey and pull it back (3) droup a row of staples into the slot w with the pointed end facing up, while keeping the gun upside down, push the spring loaded slide tray forward until the locking tabe engauge. (4) turn the gun rightside up (away from you), and fire it. the stape should come out normally, the rest should not fall out.

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.

The door at the back of the staple gun won't close


You have too many staples in the gun. Chances are it was not shooting staples so you put more in. (Only holds 1 strip as if new from box) Check for a jam. Sometimes this keeps more staples from advancing. Please rate
