What stapler to purchase

Post by Shawn K »

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.

I have the 81P. You will get epoxy on the tip which will need to be cleaned periodically. The P may be easier to clean. The PS looks like it could be more involved in cleaning. Maybe someone who has the PS will chime in. About 90 psi worked for me. Get a light weight flexible whip hose (about 10 ft.) with compact quick disconnects. The regular air hose can get heavy and awkward. Press tightly against the wood to ensure the staple gets properly driven. Make sure tool is perpendicular to the work.
