suggest you take it along when you go to the store that sells staplers.

not a good idea as the metal can break the blade
if you must use a blade with tungsten tips with 60 or more teeth
saw slowly as that gives the blade a change to gut through the staples
what do you term staples is the next question
normal furniture staples will not be a problem but nail staples is not advisable
the best idea is to remove any metal before sawing

sorry we have no information of what GUN you have , check with the manufacturer

Staples Tools &... | Answered on Feb 08, 2018

You may have the wrong size staples. There are very tiny differences between different staples (T50 vs. T26, for example), and some "wrong" staples will go into your gun but be just slightly too tight to cycle properly. The correct staple number(s) should be stamped somewhere on your stapler.

These tools are designed primarily as staplers, with a gimmick of being able to shoot brads. If you need to do a lot of brad nailing, purchase a brad nailer -- air or electric -- to do the job. In the meantime, try placing one or two drops of thin machine oil (3-in-1 is a common brand) on the impact area of the tool. Sometimes the adhesive used to form brads and staples into strips builds up on the tool surfaces and keeps them from moving freely.

Electric staplers are notoriously unreliable, but the problem you describe sounds like buildup of the adhesive -- a sort of varnish -- used to hold the staples in stick form for loading in the tool. Remove the staples and apply a light coat of 3-in-1 or other thin oil to the first two or three staples. Reload and cycle the tool. This should help you.
