Size Name: 8 mm Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These staples are a standard heavy duty size, 0.6mm by 1.2mm in section, points on a 10mm pitch, with the tines having an 8mm (5/16") length. The points are symmetrically sharpened to allow better entry into harder materials such as wood.

I used them with both my Wickes heavy duty staple gun and the Tacwise Z1-140 stapler kindly supplied by Tacwise to evaluate the staples for this Vine test. The adjustable drive of the Wickes gun allowed me to fully insert some staples into a scrap piece of Oak without the staple bending out of true, so the strength of the staples is adequate. The non-adjustable Z1-140 gun could only insert an 8mm staple halfway into the Oak but was fine on much softer Pine.

These staples claim to be galvanised; rust resistance is very important to me to prevent staining when used for upholstery, etc. So I tried a standard rust test, by leaving one in a saucer of water for a few days, and was pleased to see no signs of rust. This was significantly better than a standard light duty 26/6 office staple which quickly rusted in a second saucer alongside.

Size Name: 8 mm Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For the purpose of this review, I also received a TacWise Z1-140 Heavy Duty tacker, which is one of several that they offer in heavy and lightweight models. The same staples may be used in tackers by Rapesco, Stanley and others that use the same guage. I believe that a few staplers also use this guage.

Useful when upholstering, fixing materials to pinboards or walls and repairs for which purposes I had used similar machines in the past but there are potentially several other uses. The staples are stronger than the 26 guage versions used in the majority of hand and office staplers that many will have in the office, at school or uni and at home. They are a little deeper and the wire is slightly wider and thicker than 26 guage and therefore best suited for the more demanding tasks.

I had not previously encountered this brand but had previously used another brand. It is difficult to say that one brand is superior to another in this instance as it is some years since my last use but the quality is at least equal and pricing is similar.

Size Name: 8 mm Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What to say about the Tacwise staples? The Tacwise people kindly also sent me a Tacwise Z1-140 Staple Gun, just in time to be honest as I used it extensively when refurbishing my narrowboat - built by me anyway from a bare steel hull, but in need of a new look prior to sale. Being a boat all the upholstery and seating was custom made, this time round I was just replacing the fabric and a few bits of foam, resulting in a large amount of stapling! I also used it in the garden to put some of that weed barrier, and whilst the staples will obviously rust, it was only to hold the barrier down to the wooden path sides in the wind before pouring in stones the next day.

That said, if using it in the garden is what you can imagine doing most, it seems Tacwise Stainless Steel Staples are available too, which could be handy.

What I like was...

Good strong action - comapred to my poundstore special (now binned), the staples go through every time
Ergonomic grip - for HSE compliance in production, air or electric powered tools are essential to avoid fatigue and strain, but for 'semi pro' use this is much more comfortable than a cheap Arrow, say.

Dislikes...?

None that matter!

Tacwise 140 8mm Staples are a great general-use staple for things like upholstery or crafting but they're strong enough for tougher jobs around the home and garden too. They're galvanised so can be used in damp environments or outdoors - it is possible to get stainless steel staples for long-term outdoor use, but they're usually a lot more expensive. If you're not sure which staples will fit your stapler there's a handy downloadable chart available on the Tacwise website showing compatibility with different brands and models of stapler. I've got a couple of Tacwise staplers now, each for a different job, and haven't had a problem with any of them - or with the staples, which seem to offer good, reliable quality at a fair price. So no complaints at all so far, a good multi-purpose staple that fits a wide range of staplers.
