Omer 81-P stapler for free!

Post by Brian »

I'm finished with my project and have one of these staplers which I'm happy to give someone who can use it. It's ugly, but it works, and composite staples are very useful in bottom construction. First hand up gets it. I'll send it in a small flat rate box, no charge. This Forum has been invaluable to my project, so this is a little giveback!

What a great thing to do. I have one and I know what a great tool it is. Someone is going to be thrilled.

I do find many uses besides boat building.

I would gladly take this but don’t feel worthy (new guy). Put me at the end of the line if nobody else bites.

I would love to have this stapler. I used Steve Sauer’s a while back to re-do 4 bunks. Lemme know the cost to ship.

All yours, Steve! I think it will go in a flat rate box, so should ounce be a few bucks. No worries. E-mail me your address: bjbarbata@me.com.
When you're through with it, why don't you do the same thing I'm doing here and pass it to someone else on this Forum? Pay it forward!

Thanks again Brian and I will pass it on bud.

As soon as this mess is over, I’m going to finally jump off on the Atlantic Skiff build. Not like I need another boat, but I been contemplating for 15+ years. It’s time and you’re right, the boy will never forget.

Thanks again.

Thanks Brian

I haven't been going to the mailbox everyday as we have a community box. I am totally limiting our exposure to the outside world. All we know is our house these days. I'll suit up and go out today and check the mail buddy, then let you know.

Blair

edit update

Couldn't wait and went to mailbox. GOT IT Brian! Many thanks and as you requested, I will pass it on too.

Just an update yawl. As stated above, special delivery all the way to Texas from Hawaii!

I finally got around to installing air fitting and testing. The staple driver was stuck in the drive position so I secured it in my vise and disassembled the head. Under close inspection I noted excessive rust and epoxy residue. 220 grit emery and buffed clean. Oiled lightly and reassembled. Connected air and she works like a bran newy!

Awesome Brian!!!!
Thanks again.

Yeah, they take a little maintenance, which I didn't do. I was probably so happy to be through with epoxy, I just put it away. But they are robust, so I'm sure it will perform fine.
