What stapler to purchase

What raptor stapler should I pick up, the 81p or the 81 ps? I guess the difference is in the trigger lock and where it's located, I think anyway. I would appreciate anyone with experience stepping in and giving me some advice on the best set up, thanks.

Re: RAPTOR COMPRESSION STAPLER CT6000P

So then I'm going to need both guns one for staples and one for brads, if I use brads on the final layer of plywood? Also what size staples did you use, I would like to use the 1/4" because I'm afraid anything longer will go all the way through and sticking out on the inside of hull, but will the 1/...

Re: RAPTOR COMPRESSION STAPLER CT6000P

Ok, thanks guys. That's what I figured that going with the air tool is the best choice. Now , someone mentioned using the brads instead of staples for putting down the second layer of plywood. The first layer is done and I ran them all horizontal.. I'm going to run two more layers that will be 4mm o...

RAPTOR COMPRESSION STAPLER CT6000P

Has anyone used the compression CT6000P manual stapler from Raptor to attach 4mm okume to frames or planking? If so, How did it work? will it go through the wood or is difficult to use by hand. Im just wondering if i can purchase it and save money instead of buying the air powered Raptor stapler. So...

DONOR BOAT/ GOOD IDEA OR NOT?

So as I get farther along in my barrelback build, im starting to think about the driveline, steering and trailer etc. so it seems to me that an older inboard ski boat such as a ski nautique or supra would be a great donor. Couldn't a lot of the parts be reused in the barrelback build? Am I correct i...

OKOUME PLYWOOD VS MARINE GRADE PLYWOOD

In building my stem and breasthook as well as the transom how imperative is it that I use the okoume plywood 1088 grade because I have seen a marine grade plywood that they sell at Menards? Now I know that theres going to be a difference in appearance between the two woods, but how much of a differe...

Re: BOTTOM FRAME MEMBER NOT WIDE ENOUGH

Thanks Neel, I hadn't thought of that, but it seems that it will be a great solution. so I've gone ahead and ordered a biscuit joiner and some biscuits off of Ebay and that should resolve my issue. thanks again.

S o I have to somehow do it in two pieces, but whats the best way to do this? use a plywood gusset for support, or maybe two gussets? any examples of what others have ...

EPOXY STRENGTH TEST- ON YOU TUBE

Yesterday I happen to catch the latest boat build video on you tube from the guys on the Acorn to Arabella channel. They seem to be having a problem with glue holding up on some of the scarf joints they were making. It got real interesting to see how it all worked out, not only what they figured out...

FRAME LAYOUT ISSUE

So im transferring my frame patterns over to my wood so I can begin cutting it out, when it occurred to me that I'm not sure where im suppose to cut the frames at? how can I tell the cut line on the plans? I'm guessing the cut line is the staggered line and the line that is solid you don't cut? am I...
