    The rapid stapler is the best never jams and You get at least 5 years out of one everyday use

    Tried it . If I.m boarding I make sure there's adhesive down edge edge of reveals for clouts to bite in to . Only a prob when you do old house that for some reason are solid round reveals . And all plaster just falls off then i,ll do it proper way n stick em on lol

    I work on site and I have worked with spreads using every make of stapler you can think off. The best I have come across by miles is the Stanley Fstmax Heavy Duty. £20 quid including delivery
