I’ve been a stapling fool the past few years, stapling everything from small animal fencing and shooting targets to home repair projects, using my standard array of manual staplers from major manufacturers. The problem is, as I get older, pulling the stapler trigger or handle gets rough on the old hands — so I’m taking a look at the Arrow CT50K battery-operated stapler.
A 10.8V lithium ion battery powers the stapler, so you’re not held back by the length of a cord. The stapler holds standard T50 staples, two rows of them, in sizes ranging from 1/4” to 8/16”, and it’ll shoot up to 1,500 staples per charge. A white LED helps you place the staples exactly where you need them.
The only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on the CT50K is the price — with a street price of about $110 you’d have to do a lot of stapling to make it a worthy purchase.
