Hand Tools: Hammer tacker
Scott Gibson, Contributing Editor
This hammer tacker sets a 5/16", 3/8", or 1/2" staple with a single swing of the arm, which helps explain why Arrow calls the HT50 The Tomahawk. Staples are loaded at the rear of the tool. It takes two strips (170) of type T50 staples.
This is a heavy duty tool that will take a lot of abuse. It was available on line in September 2004 for as little as $42.
