    Default What size staple for air nailing frames

    I am getting ready to assemble frames for my new hive. I am considering using my air stapler. I have a box of 1 3/8" narrow crown staples. Would they be too long? Kelley's assembled the ones in my nuc, and the width is exactly the same.

    Thanks

    I would prefer the bit shorter, but I have a box of 3000 1 3/8".

    Yep. 1 3/8" is fine, 1 1/2" is 1/8" better!
