Great Stapler for Sheet Goods
The Cadex V3/90.40 narrow-crown stapler is the best tool for attaching cabinet backs and building jigs with thin material.
The best tool for attaching cabinet backs and building jigs with thin material is an 18-ga. narrow-crown stapler. The staple’s large head (compared to a brad) prevents it from blowing through the thin plywood, and its pair of legs holds tenaciously. The most feature-laden narrow-crown stapler I’ve come across is the recently introduced V3/90.40 from Cadex Tools, a Canadian company known for its high-quality pin nailers and brad nailers. The new stapler has an on- board blow gun, adjustable depth of drive, and a rotating hook so you can put it on either side of your belt. It’s not a tool you’ll use every day, but when you’re attaching cabinet backs, it’s the right one for the job.
