Duo-Fast 1016055 Carpet Pro 20-Gauge Electric Stapler Review
The Duo-Fast 1016055 Carpet Pro 20-Gauge Electric Stapler is one of the tools you surely want to make use of when you have a project that involves a lot of stapling. There are a lot of amateur-oriented staplers available on the market, but a professional one like this one is always welcome if you need it more than once for a DIY or construction project. The tool is designed to work with a wide range of staples so you aren’t constricted to a single type. This means that you can use in many more situations than as well. It is recommended to make use of the DuoFast range of staples if you want to do a good job. When it comes to buying the staples you should look for either 5412, 5416 or 5418 staples. Their sizes range from 3/8” to 9/16”.
Wherever you have a 110V outlet you can just plug in the Duo-Fast 1016055 Carpet Pro and get to work. It doesn’t require an air compressor like the pneumatic staple guns. Given its name, it is easy to make use of this stapler when you lay down carpet, whether you have to do this at home or if you work with carpet for your job. The tool will easily work in all sorts of situations, and given the fact that you can use multiple staple sizes, you can also set carpet in place on a wide variety of wood surfaces.
Compared to other tools, the 1016055 Carpet Duo stapler gun is designed with a longer nose, so that even thicker carpet can be punctured and put in place. On top of that, you won’t have to worry about dirt or lint getting caught inside the magazine either. Especially when you are lying down carpet, there is still a lot of residue which can get inside into the tool itself. But luckily, the magazine of this Duo-Fast stapler is not prone to catching dust, because its nickel-plated surface is not an adherent one. Jamming is not an issue with the Duo-Fast 1016055 tool so you just have to do your job and occasionally provide a full set of new staples when you take a break.
Carpet doesn’t always have to be lined up on flat surfaces. For example, if you are carpeting a staircase, you need something that can easily get into corners so carpet gets tightly set in place. The Duo-Fast 1016055 is able to easily get into such places thanks to its increased height and longer nose. Moreover, compared to other stale guns that rely on electricity to run, this one is much easier to use because it is lighter than its competitors. You might have thought about purchasing models that weighed up to 12 or 13 pounds, but when you have the opportunity to work with a tool that weighs only 7 pounds like this one, you’re going to have a much easier time. On top of that, the tool has enough grip space to accommodate wider hands, but people that have smaller hands can also make use of it. In the end, the 1016055 model designed by Duo-Fast is perfect if you want to lay down your own carpet or if you want to help others out as well.
