bosh, portercable, ryobi, metabo all make narrow crown staplers, and the staples fit most any gun. The portercable NS150 is a good gun as is the metabo. Both are around $100 or less at lowes/home depot,etc.

make sure you adjust the depth of the crown. Especially on thin material it's easy and possible to set the depth so the crown of the staple goes ALL the way through the top material! On thin material I usually adjust the gun so the crown of the staple just indents the material.

For that matter, if one is really on a budget, Harbor Freight sells a narrow crown stapler for $25 (less whatever coupon discount you can find). I don't have personal experience with that particular unit, but the HF pin brad nailer and wide crown stapler (as in T-50) I have seem to work just fine for my fairly casual use. Their safeties are somewhat questionable, but the larger ones including the stapler talked about here have better safety systems.

My trailer uses a lot of very narrow staples to hold things together. I have some repairs to do and would like to use the narrow staples too but I can't find a staple gun or staples as narrow as mine. I can find 1/4" staple guns but the staples used in my trailer are probably more like 1/8". Any idea where I might find a really narrow staple gun and staples?


Sorry late to the party, but I think I have what you are looking for. I restore campers as a hobby and needed one for wall and ceiling board.

The staple is approx. 3/16" wide, it is not 1/4" and the wire thickness is less than the common 18 gauge staples as I have one of them too. I searched and searched to find this, but I did find one. The stapler I found is called a “fine wire 22 gauge” stapler and often also called an "upholstery stapler". Mine is air driven. This is not to be confused with a “carpet” stapler, they are close, but not like the 22 gauge fine wire stapler.

You will not find these at the big box stores, I tried Home Depot, Lowes, Menards and they could not match it and never heard of it as I brought them an old pulled out staple to compare.

For what I do with it the 18 gauge it too big, it leaves to much of a depression, large wire to cover over. I was looking for what my brand camper manufacture used as the staples almost disappear into the wall board. Then use a blend stick and you cannot tell a staple was ever there.

This is what I bought and it works excellent. This brand is higher end and the cost reflects it. I am doing enough camper work that I could justify it. And after using it, it works so nice the extra cost for a high quality tool is worth it for me.

Model no. (Note: Mine is single shot. I did not want the automatic rapid fire. They do offer the auto ione if wanted)

A pic of the size I have, they make them in different lengths.

The number on the box of staples. I had to buy a box of them, 20,000 staples per box.

Here are the specs on it from Senco
https://www.senco.com/tools/details-page/sft10xp-a-d-wire-stapler

To see the staple sizes, look under the Spec's tab on the Senco link.

I bought it at ToolBarn. There are other places that sell them too. https://www.toolbarn.com/senco-6s0001n.html/ I bought the Senco staples on Ebay as they had them and ToolBarn had to order.


Hope this helps

John

Sorry the 2 pics are rotated. Flicker is not working right today to rotate them.
