I’m trying to buy brads, where can I buy the brads for this staple/Brad gun?

I bought one of these guns today and I had the same problem and it took me about 2 hours to figure it out as the instructions were very poor. Here how to load the brad nails:-

(a) Pull the slider bar all the way out
(b) Place the brad nail stick on the left side, IN FRONT OF the slider, NOT in the narrow gap in front of the two arrows where it says "LOAD BRADS"
(c) The nail heads should be facing the handle of the gun
(d) Close the slider and lock it
(e) Try it out. I tried nailing hardboard onto chipboard. The lever at low power only put the nail in about 30%. On Hi power it went in about 80%.

Good Luck

The magazine on the TR250 has a recess on one side as well as a relief at the top where the driver pushes them through the opening. Load the brads/nails on that side of the magazine and it should operate properly. AS A REMINDER: ALWAYS REMOVE NAILS/STAPLES/BRADS WHEN NOT IN USE AS THIS WILL WEAKEN THE SPRING AND CAUSE FEED PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE.

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. :)

how to reload stapples?

This is not a type of stapler that clinches the legs of the staples. There would have to be a lower jaw to do that. Like a desk top stapler has.
