Excellent tool for upholstery
22 Jun 2012
By ACW1963
, Lewisham, London.
"I bought this tool to staple upholstery material to my Granddaughters favourite chair. It performed better than expected and made the work an enjoyable experience. Can't wait to need something else to staple.
An excellent addition to an already well stocked tool box.

Great Machine
10 Jun 2010
By DIYBODGER
, Up North
"The previous reviewer must have a faulty unit because this stapler does exactly what it says.I have now used up all the free 1000 staples and half of the nails and the machine performed faultless.
Im now thinking of buying the bigger brother to fire longer brads.These are great time saving machines, perhaps not as robust as the Dewalt but hey 10xs less the price ;)

A Great Tool
6 Mar 2008
By Robby
, Chelmsford
"The Tacwise 140EL Pro Stapler, whilst not being as robust as something more professional is none the less excellent value for the enthusiast. It is very easy to use, rarely jams and its lightweight construction makes it ideal for those jobs where the arms are extended over the head. Its action is positive and accurate - a must for every tool kit."

What a shame
12 Sep 2013
By Fred123
, Gloucestershire
"This could be a great machine if they made it out of decent materials. I have lost count of the number of times I have had to return them to Screwfix to get a free replacement, The trigger mechanism breaks, The casing around the staple housing breaks and the lock to hold the staple loader closed breaks. My last exchange was 12th June this year (3 months) It started firing staples every second press of the trigger for a while then stopped totally. I would buy something different but there are no other electric staplers which take to shorter (4 or 6 mm) staples. Guess its back to Screwfix again for another one. - I dont use it very often but when I do its fairly intensive - for headboards and the like"

Excellent value staple gun
7 Apr 2013
By rdiyer
, Harpenden
"This is a very good staple gun and is excellent value for money. I have used it to staple hardboard onto wooden floor boards using 14mm TACWISE staples. I did not give it 5 stars as it did not fire a staple every time I pressed the trigger on one strip of 14mm staples. However, when I removed the staples and reversed them the staple gun worked every time. This might be the fault of this strip of TACWISE staples as previous staple strips fired with no problem."

Good Lightweight Stapler
22 Jun 2012
By JimBobby
, Surrey
"I purchased this stapler as it's bigger brother (Tacwise 191EL Pro 35mm) which I bought from Screwfix a year ago (which is excellent) starts at 15mm and I needed a 6mm staple. I was sceptical at the time as other reviews mentioned it jams when it gets to the last few staples. I can confirm this is true, (unlike it's bigger brother) it does jam on the last few staples however it's quick to un-jam and is still a great product and time saver. Therefore 3 stars for reliability due to jamming. Putting this aside I would still buy this product as it's still good and easy to use."

Great for the price!
12 Jun 2011
By AlanG
, Windsor
"I looked at many other staplers before buying this one. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. It is portable, quiet and performs very well for the size/money. This does not compete with compressor driven pro machines but does well.
It is easy to load with nails and staples and easy to swap between.
The only down side is there is no safety, so when it is switched on you can easily shoot nails all over the place.

My first staple gun
9 May 2011
By Whitebear
, Norfolk
"I bought this staple gun to make life easier whilst fixing chicken wire to a wooden frame using 14mm staples (making an aviary style run for my chickens). The gun easily fired the staples in to the wood and made fixing the chicken wire far easier and faster. I did, however, note that I became "trigger-happy" and used more staples than I would have otherwise used (as this made the chicken wire more secure, it can't be a fault).
The only problem that I encountered was a tendency to jam when down to the last half dozen staples on a strip; more of an anoyance than anything else."

Good entry level stapler
4 Mar 2011
By max54
, NW London
"Good entry level stapler - did not expect more than that in this price range. Bought as a more convenient replacement for a manual spring loaded stapler I use for fixing 3mm MDF / Hardboard backs to cabinets.
Does the job and I would recomend it, bearing in mind that it not more powerful than a manual stapler.
It reaces its limiations with a 14mm staple and 3mm MDF back on MDF cabinet, which is the "hardest" combination.

Good Stapler
31 Dec 2009
By DaveE
, essex
"Bought this to staple silver insulation to the rafters after using a manual stapler that didnt work (from another DIY retailer).
Pros, much quicker than a manual stapler, made putting up the insulation much quicker and easier.
Cons, the power cord is quite short so when using an extension lead tends to drag, quite sensitive so make sure you have the safety on or switch it off when not using it.

ABSALUTE RURRISH

By bagofnails
, Torquay
"I've only ever used the stapler to tack on thin felt to a shed roof ,buto be honest I would have done a bettter job if I'd used the office stapler ! I hardley put in three staples before it failed. Alright five, but it's extremley annoying to have to keep running down the ladder to sort out a miss fired staple.I held the machine firm and upright,but no chance,It's mickey mouse.I realy don't recommend this toy"

Rubbish

"Used it for twenty minutes then it stopped firing staples.
Had to slide staple loading arm to reset between each firing. Then the little clip holding the arm in broke.
Would not recommend this to anyone
