Which omer staple gun should I buy?!

Postby lehcar32 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:55 pm

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and would appreciate some expert advice.

I already have a compressor and I am looking to invest in an Omer staple gun. I will need to use it for canvas stretching and ideally also for stapling MDF backs into frames (we used this method at a previous place I worked by firing them at an angle through the MDF board).

It looks like either the 50.16 or 80.16 would be good models - I can see that 50.16 takes no.50 staples which are wider and better for not tearing canvas - would this one also be suitable for stapling through the MDF backs? What are others' experiences of these models? And can anyone give a simple explanation of what range of staples each take?

Many thanks in advance!
