    A regular T50 stapler with 9/16" long staples, a small block of soft wood (to use as a backer - better than stapling into fingertips), and a pair of needle nose pliers to bend over the staple points (clinch them).

    I assemble cardboard nucs and various sized riteway shipping cartons using this technique. It has worked quite well.

    I have the T-50 and will give the 9/16 a try. Anything's cheaper than $50.00 for the riteway and $20.00 for the staples.

    Google (Salco P694.) $32.95 This is the sameone that mann lake has. You will also need 1/2'' staples. pstcr5019/12
    Don't think you are on the right road simply because it is a well worn pathway.

    Hot melt glue gun. Actually worked better than the stapler. Just need to hold it a bit while the glue dries - 5 to 10 seconds should do.
