Pneumatic staplers do not always position the 1/4 “crown staples flush. Driving them the rest of the way with a hammer causes the staples to bend, so I designed this easy to make tool, which I call a “staple set”.
To make the set, cut a 5 “section of dowel at least 1” in diameter and drill a 1/4 “hole in the center. You will need to drill through the dowel at both ends to get all the way through. Insert a rod of 6-1 / 2 “1/4” steel into the hole. Place the staple set over the staples and tap the steel rod. This sets the staple without bending it.Bob Enderle
