The selective actuation switch lets the user conveniently select bump fire actuationfor quick stapling when precise placement is not required. By simply flipping theswitch, the user transitions to sequential fire. Armed with a nose mounted light,exact staple placement is easy even in dark areas and the reload indicatoreliminates dry firing that can cause damage.
Air-powered finishing staplers drive thin staples into non-structural molding, baseboard, and trim. Thin staples typically have a more narrow crown than heavy staples, so they are less visible and easier to cover in finishing applications. Air-powered tools derive their power from a compressed air supply.
Compact and durable, the SFW09 fine-wire stapler will handle any upholstery task with ease. With all-metal construction and a smooth profile, this tool works all day, everyday and won't snag or scuff fabric.
Power-driven staples are commonly used to join framing members in upholstered furniture construction because of their quick and easy installation. To successfully introduce oriented strandboard (OSB) into upholstered furniture as frame stock, moment capacity data for stapled gusset-plate joints constructed of OSB are needed. In this study, the static moment capacity of T-shaped, end-to-side joints with two gusset-plates was determined experimentally and analytically for gusset-plates of different lengths (4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 inches) attached with 1.0-inch- and 1.5-inch-long staples with and without adhesive. The moment capacity of the joint increased in proportion with the length of the gusset-plate until the strength of the gusset exceeded that of the main joint member. Analytical prediction of the moment capacity of an unglued stapled joint was found satisfactory. Application of glue to the connection surface changed the failure modes of the joints and increased their moment resistance capacity.
Because power-driven staples are quick and easy to install, they are the most commonly used fasteners to join framing members and to attach fabric to the frame in upholstered furniture. Generally, it is believed that staples have limited holding strength in withdrawal. When staples are used to attach two members by gusset-plates, the joint may develop considerable strength as the staples resist shear load rather than withdrawal (Zhang and Maupin 2004). Therefore, the gusset-plate joints could be used for critical joints, such as back bottom rail-back post and bottom side rail-back post joints in upholstered furniture frames as shown in Figure 1 since these joints are highly stressed and difficult to reinforce. 781b155fdc
