I had ordered some frames awhile back, just didn't need them until next spring. So I guess I need to investigate the air guns and see exactly what I need to buy....  I see that Lowes and Home Depot seem to have sales on a "air gun package".

Can't go wrong with the $20 stapler from Harbor Freight. I've aquired a couple of them over the years.  My original one has built 1000s of frames and 100s of hive bodies and is still going strong....

Rob. Do you use the nails or staples on your frames ?
Do you also glue your woodenware ?

Great videos Rob. I have visited other parts of your wed site but never saw the frame jig by Ross before. Perfect accessory. I have put everything together manually till now and just tried my stapler today to put together some boxes. Saves a bunch of time but I can see that it will be to large to do the frames without a perfect aim because of the 7/16 crown.
