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.
At £2.50 - £3.50 for 2000 why buy cheap no names that bounce back at you because they are blunt?
All in all these are two very good products from a good specialist company. Tacwise Heavy Duty 140 Type Staples 8mm are real quality staples, which will not rust, and hence worth the extra outlay.
1. They come in a nice well presented re-usable box.
2. They are galvanised to make them resistant to rust.
3. They fit perfectly in the staple gun, provided you have the correct model.
4. They can staple a multitude of different things.
5. They are small and lightweight, making them highly portable.
6. The staples are all matching, perfect for the fashion conscious
7. Simple to use, no complicated instructions.
8. Very long shelf life.
9. Well made high quality manufacture.
10. Cheap, low cost per unit.
I can't add anything else, a fine low tech product.
I would recommend the 8mm staples for tacking fabric, card or material that wasn't going to come in for too much pull on it since, although the breath is thick, the depth of the staples is only 8 mm. For anything needing stronger securing such as a tarpaulin that may catch the wind, I would recommend deeper staples as used with the Tacwise 0847 Z3-53L Staple / Nail Gun, which takes the 53 series which is colour-coded blue and features deeper penetrating but thinner staples.
Do stick to Tacwise's colour-coding guidelines because different colour-coded staples do not work in their stable guns that are NOT correspondingly colour-coded. This is because the staple is a different breadth and will be spat out of the back. (I just tried it in the interests of experimentation.)The staples themselves are good strong quality as you would expect from a reputable company such as Tacwise.
However, quality is relevant in terms of the nuisance and untidiness when staples crumple or fail to penetrate fully and both the sharpness of the point and the strength of the wire are important. Tacwise-Rapesco dominates this sector and they deal a lot with trade, which tends to be indicative of a quality product.
These heavy duty stainless steel staples punch through flooring and MDF with ease and I have not suffered a single bent staple, which is probably a combination of both the staple and the gun (a Tacwise Z1-140) although the staples are cross compatible with quite a lot of other manufacturer’s guns.
