    +1. They have an inexpensive compressor as well. Just don't make the mistake I made on the hose. Get rubber hose (flexible), NOT VINYL (stiff)!

    I've got the same one. I've had it for 2 years. I haven't shot 75,000 staples with it, but I have shot 4 boxes of them. I think there's 5000 per box. I've shot everything from 1/2" to 1 1/2". I have found that Senco staples are superior to any others I have available locally. I've tried Hitachi, Bostich, and Senco staples. Senco only from here on out. They hold MUCH better and don't rust.

    Now that we have a Harbor Freight, I'll buy one of the $19 ones to use for different sized staples. I don't like having to change out the staples. It slows me down. Time is money....

    Senco staples shot thru a harbor freight 1/4" crown stapler along with titebond 3.
    Using butt joints and doing it fast and dirty on the supers. They'll last a few years until I can invest in some proper wood.

    I have some boxes where someone used 1 1/4" x 1/4" crown staples. They do not stay together. Most of mine are 1 1/2" 1/4" crown staples and they do well. If my gun would take longer staples I would use them...

    I love my Hitachi. So light, repetitive fire. Totally will take the Pepsi challenge tho with the titebond. I use gorilla.

    I've used the 1 1/4 narrow crown. Worked fine, just back staple as well.

    Just be careful when stapling the frame pieces. Some times a leg of the staple will follow the grain out the side of the wood. If you happen to be holding the pieces in place a little too high, you will become stapled to the frame. Ask me how I know.

    Been using a Surebonder 9630 - cost about $30 on amazon - driven a couple thousand staples for various projects - no problems.

    That's a fact. It isn't the gauge of the staple (or nail), it is the length that helps holding power. I wish mine took longer staples.

    Yup, that can happen. Don't ask me how I know this either.
    I'm sure glad my stapler doesn't take longer staples
    I really should not be permitted to use power tools of any sort but sometimes "they" let me.

    I'm looking to get a nailer/stapler but unsure of which, and now I see this thread. I would like something that will be well suited for building all hive components, be it brood boxes, bottom boards, roofs, etc. Would the Hitachi N3804AB3 mentioned be a good for this? Or should I go with something else, with a longer length nail/staple?

    Yes, it will shoot up to 13/4 inch staples and that will be all you need

    I use a Hitachi air nailer with about 1.8" nails. Yes, they sometimes follow the grain. I usually break off any that protrude.

    Titebond III absolutely.

    I have a cheap Harbor Freight nailer. It seems to have ingested a tiny piece of trash that made it fire at dangerous times. Pulling the trigger would not make it fire, but connecting or disconnecting the air would make it fire, without the safety mechanism depressed. Quite disturbing. A complete cleaning of the guts fixed it, but now I treat air nailers with the same range safety considerations I would with a pistol. It could probably happen to any of them.

    I don't use the air nailer for frames. For that I use a spring-drive stapler that can also shoot 5/8" brads. Titebond does the heavy holding. I shoot the brads in from the sides so they are long enough.

    I use a Porter cable ms200 medium crown staple gun with 2" B&C Eagle stainless steel medium crown staples. This along with tight bond 3 makes a very strong bond and I've never had issues with boxes pulling appart.

    I use a Porter cable narrow crown stapler with 1.5" staples for frames. It might work for boxes, but for me a medium crown stapler is better for boxes.
