Has anyone used one of the romex staplers for 12/2 or 14/2? Saw one today at HD for $36. It holds 25 of the romex staples that have the plastic piece on the horizontal section. The idea sounds good, less stuff to tote crawling underneath a house or up into the attic. Just curious how the application actually works out. Thanks.
Every tool has its own advantage. I own one and use it a lot. Real handy in new construction, crawl spaces and attics. After a while you get use to it and learn some techniques. I keep some u nails too with me so I can use them when I need.
Attic Rat, To me, it is a more precise method and the staples have a plastic insulator so I am less likely to damage the jacket than when I'm swinging a 3# hammer at it. Now when somebody comes out with a battery version so you don't kill your fingers, I'll switch forever.
