I'm sick of our manual staple gun its old, ***** to use especially when covering panels and needing a load of staples. Plus an air stapler is a hell of a lot more fun to use. I went to home depot the other day and looked at the Porter Cable that was about $90. Will that one be good for covering panels and stapling fleece down for fiberglass boxes? Or is there another one out there that is better for what I need it for?

I use a $25 gun from Harbour Frieght. And I use the smallest staples they sell there. Been going strong for a year now. no problems.

the porter cable will last you forever and is an excellent choice :) Itll do exactly what you want.

How does this look for MDF? Can it handle simple fleece/mdf attachment?

Thats a brad nailer, not a stapler. It can be used in the box building process, but no for fleece.

Once again I'm with you. I bought the combo brad nailer/ stapler for like $30. Been going strong for well over a year now. Still shoots brads and staples just as good as the day I bought it. :)

Got ya, was hoping i could nail the fleece on. I guess i'd get a stapler/nailer combo.

Any1 recommend a CHEAP compressor? Site?

And what gauge of nail is best to use?

I would spend as much as you possibly can on a compressor. It's one thing I Choose not to skimp on as it's the power source for every air powered tool you use. If you decide to wet your feet in the painting department you will be glad you did spend the extra money. :)

Will any of these shoot 3/8" 10mm staples just like the manual stapler shoots? Or are these too big?
