Summary: " Just purchased this item popped the staples in and doesnt fire them, then tried getting them out and they all slid down the side of the machine and got stuck! and no the picture above is not what you get. for £29.99 this item is rubbish! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
Summary: " This is the first time I have used B&Q online and item to be delivered to home. Service was fantastic - delivered really quickly to the Isle Of Wight. Unfortunately the picture is NOT the one you will get!

Summary: ....but do be careful! Bought this for attaching chicken-wire to wooden frame & is SO easy to use. Jammed several times due to broken staples, but relatively easy to clear.

Summary: Claims to be good for stapling chicken wire netting to wood. It ain't. Much too lightweight, mine keeps jamming when the magazine gets low on staples, and the push-in staple loader keeps popping out.

Summary: This was my 4th staple gun and I am doing only occasional light upholstery. It was my second Tacwise 140EL and it got broken again. In the first one the grey plastic at the bottom broke due to constant hammering, in the second one the staple holder got broken. Otherwise the performance was quite good (while it was working) probably better then any other staple gun in this class and price range.
