    Upholstery Stapler?

    What kind of stapler/staples do you guys use for carpeting boxes??

    Specific sizes and/or where you got them from would be great. I cant really find anything locally that I know works well so if you have any retail store suggestions that would be great as ordering online will take too long. Thanks!!
