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....http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,16842.msg123751.html#msg123751
