    Default Re: Filling holes from staples

    Ok then. I guess people don't spot staple holes.

    I have just been caulking them and then painting the boxes. Guess I am gong to keep doing that. I only made 100 boxes last year and probably will build about the same this year so it is not to much time to spot the holes.

    And just so you know "Life is good here in Issaquah".

    The answer might be:
    Most good staplers or nailers have a depth adjustment so you can dial in the depth!

    Just built 15 nuc's and took me 15 minutes to spot the all the holes with caulk on all 15. I think a good investment of time.
