The Stapler that take 10mm staples which don't exist
I purchased this stapler after being told it would be good for doing the upholstery job I was attempting. I was told that the local store didn't have the 10mm staples but they could be bought. Surprise Surprise 10mm staples don't exist. 16mm is the smallest. If you as a company are going to do a deal and be exclusive to one retailer then do your customers the courtesy of making sure the staff of the store all stores know exactly was is available and what is not. I can not give a review on the function of this machine as the staples a way to long. But the company and retailer need to get their acts together. This is not acceptable conduct from either company
Saved Me Hours
I purchased this product after laying laminate floating floors through my house and needing to attach the scotia to the skirting boards.
Originally I was going to have to use a hammer and nails, as well as a nail punch, climbing around on my hands and knees, nailing them in one by one... That was after spending an hour drilling pilot holes into all of the pieces of trim.
I was seriously dreading the job, I kept putting it off until finally I decided to go and buy a nailgun with the hope that it would give me the motivation to finish the ...project. I already have several of Ryobi's other tools and the only reason that I chose this nailer was for that reason, because it saved me buying the batteries. I was slightly worried because Ryobi isn't known for being the best quality on the market but I figured at just over $200 with a 6 year warranty and with the time it would save me I was willing to buy it. I'm extremely happy I did, this thing made the job effortless and I could tell that the quality was decent for the price. I had absolutely no issues at all, it was more powerful that I expected and light and easy to use, I even managed to drive a nail all the way through a piece of timber so that it was halfway out of the other side. (you're not meant to do this but I wanted to try). So it doesn't lack power at all, the nails are cheap, it speeds up jobs by hours and it is affordable. I would 100% recommend this to anybody, my expectations were exceeded.
Before I was a man. Then I bought a Ryobi 18V One+ AirStrike 18GA. I am now a GOD!
When society eventually crumbles back into lawlessness and savagery, and people run wild through the streets waving hammers and glue above their heads, my family will sleep securely knowing that I'll still be able to nail two bits of wood together quickly and easily with my Ryobi 18GA 18V One+ AirStrike brad nailer. Until the battery runs out, that is..
I'm a simple man, and my home handyman skills are even simpler. Does a screw need tightening? I can tightening it! Has a hole mysteriously appeared in a plaster wall? I can find a painting la...rge enough to cover it up! Is a cupboard door not closing properly? I can adjust it..eventually, because man, those doors have like 3 screws to adjust it up down left right in out and into the 5th and 6th dimensions. Lately I've had the overwhelming urge to make things in the time honoured fashion of sticking two bits of wood together. Traditionally, I would have achieved with tools such as hammers, glue, nails, sticky tape and sheer willpower. After a recent visit to my local Bunnings that all changed. Browsing their Ryobi One+ range I settled on a 18GA brad nailer which fires thin nail like brads using their patented air-bangy-strike-ahoy technology powered by their versatile One+ rechargeable battery range. So far I've used it on a variety of things, such as Tasmanian Oak, MDF, pine, laminated boards, ply, a book, some doors, some old 4x4 posts in my garden, skirting boards, a bench seat I made from old timber, picture frames, and wood paneling lining the walls in one of my rooms. It handled each with aplomb, which is French for 'overconfident guy with a nailgun'. It does have its limits though. Trying to drive a 50mm nail in a thicker hardwood will result in the nail shooting out the side of the wood or not driving in all the way, so consider the 16GA brad nailer or 15GA finishing nailer depending on the job at hand. It uses affordable brad nails from 15mm to 50mm so you just have to pick the right size for the timber you're joining. It has a depth adjustment to control how deep you fire the nail, a power adjustment dial so you can fiddle with it and pretend you know what you're doing when your wife is watching, a safe firing mode so it doesn't accidentally nail your head to the roof and and comes in a bright green colour so it's easy to find when you throw it at the redback spiders hiding your shed.
Very easy to use- light work
Great for skirting boards and light work. Did a few fence pailings did job but a little light. Fit for purpose- though only used for one job so far. Would not use hammer and nails again. Generally punches nails nicely too. Have big battery kept it going ages. Pity it can not take bigger fence nails.
Ryobi air strike Nail Gun
Picked up my Nail gun today and the guy at the shop was saying it's no good for hard wood decking, when I got it home I filled it up and dam the nails only went half way in, I was devo until I saw at the back the switch turned it to max and boom nails went it all the way plus some so happy days and hard wood decking DYI job is on its way
Works well, but!!!
Narrow crown staplers are widely used in furniture manufacture as narrow crown staples hold components together much better than brad nails do!
The Ryobi has a distinct advantage in that it is completely self contained, No Power Cords!, No air Hoses!
It has it's own inbuilt aircompressor (Ryobi call it Airstrike technology!) making it very easy to use even though it is somewhat heavier than most other staplers.
On trying out me new stapler I found it sets 25mm staples perfectly, with the head of the staple set just below the surface of the ...
Questions & Answers
Has anyone used this to attach thatching to a pogola hut which is suppose to be stapled down into place.
Would you recommend using for fence pailings or does it not really work for that type of job?
Hi - no, I wouldn't recommend it for that purpose. While it will help you secure a few fence palings in an emergency to stop the pets escaping, it's designed for lighter work like internal cabinets and trim around the house. You'll need a heavier duty nailer for a long term fence fix. You can hire one from your local Bunnings and they'll advise which to use. Hope this helps! :)
