Do I need a Staple Gun or a Nail Gun?

It can be confusing to know whether you need a stapler or a nailer to best complete your job or project. There is some crossover in the uses for these tools, however, knowing which one to use is dependent on the job that you are doing. For example, upholstery is best completed with a stapler. You would not use a nail gun. However, if you working with wood/wood applications, it is possible to use either the stapler or the nailer. Although a nailer is more commonly used, the stapler will actually have more holding power due to the bridge that connects the two legs of the staple together. The reason for using a nailer is for cosmetic purposes. The nail is much easier to hide, and is more attractive. Also, a nail is much easier to remove compared to a staple.
