I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I just finished my canvas top. The swingline 50 stapler just didn`t cut it. I bought an air stapler with 5000 staples. The staples are not as wide as original and a hair longer. I just used twice as many. Anyone doing a canvas top that staples at the top is more than welcome to use this stapler just pay shipping both ways I will include the staples. It took my son and I about 10 minutes to staple the top and it was done.
I think the screws at the bottom of the canvas was the worst part. I did buy a thumb screwdriver with a #1 bit that worked well on the screws you can`t reach.
Please let me know if you need the stapler. I am not sure I will have much use for it unless I put a new canvas on another bus.
Thanks
Jim

If it don`t fit force it if it breaks than it needed fixing anyway

Just got stapler back from rwdaws he said it worked well for him. It is still here if anyone wants to use it. I have the staples for it. The only thing you will need is a compressor and a hose.
