According to Milwaukee, its new Staple & Nail Gun (model 48-22-1010) provides up to 75 percent more driving power than standard staple guns, while offering the added benefit of shooting 18-gauge brad nails, too. It has a dual-mode power switch to help ensure that, when set to maximum power, staples and brads are driven flush into tough surfaces such as OSB. Or switch to the low power setting to maintain better control when fastening into softer or more fragile materials. This all-metal and manual tool has a Tilt & Fire bevel at the front edge, which makes it easier to drive fasteners when holding the gun at an awkward angle. An integrated staple puller pries up errant staples without needing to reach for another tool. The Staple & Nail Gun drives T50® style staples ranging from 1/4- to 9/16-in. or both 1/2- and 5/8-in. brads. Other user-friendly features include a clear viewing window on the magazine to monitor staple quantities left, an overmolded grip for comfort and a wire belt clip. Available this month through Milwaukee retailers, the Staple & Nail Gun comes with a limited lifetime warranty and sells for $29.99.
