Building on the company’s venerable T50 Staple Gun, Arrow expands fastening versatility with the new T50elite™ model. It’s one of the first manual staplers that can also fire 1-in. brad nails. The tool features a patented drive technology that makes it up to 60 percent more powerful than the T50 Stapler, but it’s also easier to squeeze. A high and low power switch allows users to adjust the driving force when fastening into hard or soft surfaces, and a quick-load magazine should help speed the process along when replenishing fasteners “mid-task.” A rubber grip and jam-resistant mechanism are other creature comforts offered here. The T50elite is available at Lowe’s for $26.99.
