there should be a button / lever at the rear press it and it should open so as to insert the staples

staples don't go into wood flush and even. they bend.

This is an ongoing problem with this tool. Between inadvertently moving it while using it and the constant rebound of the tool, the setting gets changed. The only suggestion I have is to duct tape the setting wheel into position.

The problem you are having is common, so don’t feel bad. I learned all of this helping another individual that had no idea how to use this tool. The confusion comes from the fact that it loads differently than most staplers. The staples are NOT loaded on top of the pull out shaft; they are inserted directly into the slot that opens when you pull the shaft out. The other big issue is a safety feature. If the nose of the tool is not placed firmly against a surface, it will not fire. Go to Stanley’s website’s knowledge base and type in the model number TRE550, and you can get a PDF of directions. Here is a step by step with a pic below: Unplug the tool. Squeeze the end of the shaft at the rear bottom of the tool and pull out the shaft. Flip the tool over on it’s back. Insert the staples, (points up) and then slide the shaft back in. Plug it in, press the on button (under the the power cord in the back). Press the nose squarely against the material and press the trigger.a665293.jpg

Springs about 1/2 long by 1/4 diameter....guess it is part of the head assembly.

The Spring keep the Staples against the Stapler driving tool. Normally there is a metal pad to push against the staples, a rod that goes thru the Spring with a metal latch that locks inside the Stapler.

When was the last time this tool was serviced? Bostitch makes an Oring kit for this part #N890RK I could not find the price. I would start by looking at the safety to make sure that is moves freely and is not bent. Then I would think about putting new rubber in this tool. First go to Stanleybostitch and navigate into tools and then support to look at a breakdown for this one. It is not that difficult to rebuild, if you do make sure that you put lube on the new orings and take your time rebuilding to ensure that you dont pinch one of the new rings. Hope this helps

I don't know but I think the lead would be the easiest part to penetrate but why would you want to?

Well formed lead flashing is usually pointed into a mortar joint of the brickwork or a groove cut into masonry with a disc cutter and then the weight of the lead keeps it in place, especially if it is well bedded onto a few beads of a modern adhesive.

The constant movement of lead due to temperature changes mean firm fixing isn't a good long term choice - holes elongate and allow moisture ingress and nails work loose.

If the lead must be fixed then galvanised clout nails provide the best option, ensuring each row of nails is covered by the next layer of lead and there is enough slope to ensure good water runoff and prevent capillary action being a factor when after a few years of moss growth and frost some of the lead begins to lift a little.

First disconnect from power. It appears that a staple has jammed in the slide which holds all the staples. Open up the filling section and look closely at the area where the hammer slide pushes out the staples, that is where most jams occur.
