Arrow Fastener’s new T50 R.E.D.™ Staple Gun is the first tool in the new R.E.D. (an acronym for “Reliable. Ergonomic. Durable.”) line, and is the first manual tacker capable of firing 1″ brad nails. It uses patented drive technology to set a staple or nail right on virtually any surface and has a quick bottom load, a precision fastener control that resists jams, and high/low power settings for working with a variety of hard and soft surfaces. The T50 R.E.D. can use six sizes of staples (from 1/4″ to 9/16″) and three sizes of 18-gauge brad nails (up to 1″). Suggested price in 2011 was $24.99.
