Makita 18v T50 Stapler (Tool Only) $118 from $180 Home Depot Poulsbo WA.

1 left when I was there.

Since I do not have battery and charger bought drill, battery and charger kit for $99

This stapler is maybe half the size of the Ryobi but now at same price. total before tax $217.

Switching tool brands can be pricey. I like my Makita stuff.

Over the past 6 months, and due to SlickDeals feeding my weakness for deals, I now own Ryobi, Makita, Bosch, and Dewalt. Of those, I would rank them in about that order. (Each one but Ryobi being excellent quality, Ryobi good) That said, frankly, for my around the house work I have never had a Ryobi tool fail. I am having my first battary start to go south with Ryobi, but the battery is a NiCad from when Ryobi was blue with yellow/black batteries.

I have a hand powered spring loaded T50 stapler, I am not sure I would spend $118 on one. I guess I don't have the need for it.

Good luck with your new brand of tools.

Nothing against Ryobi. I often dream of them too. I use a stapler every day in upholstery. This Makita stapler is great for in home service work. Eventually it will pay for itself.

Only thing with the Ryobi is size. Makita is much smaller. but even that does not compare to my air powered upholstery gun. I really did not need another gun. I was wishing I had never gave the 9.6v. one I had away. This came up so... But I will use it more then most.

I do know some thing about upholstery grade staple guns. I taught upholstery for 15 years until the fun was gone. This one is good. Not the best but very good for the home do it yourself upholsterer. Most hand or electric guns will not work for upholstery. Harbor Freight has an air gun for $20 that shoots T50s that is not to bad. And great for the DIY ERS.

For me a good deal. your use may very.

I haven't used an electric, but after using a pneumatic stapler for vapor barrier and house wrap, I won't ever be using a hand powered stapler again unless I absolutely have to. This is still a little pricey for me, but thanks for sharing the deal.
