Re: canvas stapler question

I have a Stanley electric stapler that i find very convenient. Largest canvas i've done todate is a 24x36" but have done several 30" long ones recently.

Although the Stanley is a standard T50 stapler, when i tried Arrow staples in the Stanley, they seemed to buckle and twist more than the Stanley ones. I've thrown the Arrows away and now use only Stanley staples in my Stanley stapler

I've been using 3/8" long legs, but seeing the comments above, that is probably overkill and perhaps i'll go try 5/16". On 3/8" legs, they don't always seat completely its necessary to tap them in farther.
