In my experience the Hansen Tacker is best for stapling a replacement grip. I did not have much luck stapling buttcaps through the pallet/handle into the hairpin. For that I use my Dewalt pneumatic crown stapler driven by a compressor (same setup as you have @graycrait)Which model of Hansen Tacker should I be looking for? I have an air pressure narrow crown stapler that works well but if I found one of these Hansens that can actually drive a staple all the way in I might pick it up.
-i mainly saw this done on older wood racquets, even while holding down the leather grip, not just the buttcapNobody used small tacks and a hammer.
I guess I am the only one.
IIRC, you lift up the lever at the back/base of the stapler and it slides rearward for access to the "slot" that takes the staples. Don't overload or the little sliding 'plunger' won't fit back in and lock. Reminded me a bit of old BB rifles.WWII...sorry! Thanks...I'll check uline. Do you happen to know how to load it?
