Does your staple gun run out of oomph during jobs?
Staples that aren’t set flush can be unsightly and dangerous. Things have a tendency to get caught on them – like your skin. Using a hammer alone just flattens them out but doesn’t really set them below the surface. FastCap has a unique little tool that drives them about 1/16” below the surface with the tap of a hammer. The crown of a ¼” staple fits perfectly into the recess of the setting tool. Made in China.

Works as Advertised
from Shingle Springs, CA
This is one of those specialty tools that you only need when you need it - but then you're glad you have it in the drawer.I use narrow crown staples mostly in plywood to join cabinet carcass pieces and occasionally for other joinery (drawers, etc.). Sometimes the staple does not go in flush or countersink just below the surface. I use this tool like a nail set but it evenly hits the crown of the staple and sets it perfectly.Works as advertised and I recommend it if you use pneumatic staples.

Makes my work look better.
from Hudson, IN
I had been trying to get the staple even with the board by hitting it with a hammer. By the time I got it even with the board, the bpoard was dimpled from the hammer. Now I just put the stter on the staple and hit it lightly with the hammer and there it is a nice smooth surface and no wood chipping.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
