yup, thats how its done.  I think Im going to build a 50 frame jig next. lol Only thing I do different is shove a roofing nail between the depth adjuster and the gun which disables the safety. you can hover the gun and pull trigger and nail down the line as fast as you want to move.

Bee curious, The shorter jig works well too just doesn't hold the end bars quite as securely. It will handle medium frame too!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I  use the 1" and 1 1/2" staples also with glue.  Already had a 1" Dewalt air stapler and got a Hitachi 1 1/2" air stapler.  If you check around some times you can get a pretty good deal on them.  Best to my memory I got the Dewalt for 65 and the Hitachi for 75, anyway good luck to you all.

Using reconditioned Hitachi N 36804AB3 shooting 5/8", 1" & 1-1/2" 1/4 crown porter cable staples, just finished up 3k foundationaless frames and will begin working on a few medium 8 frame boxes.

Scooter, did you get it from CPO.  That is where I got mine, it wasn't reconditioned, it was an opened box.

i'm a carpenter & already had a framing gun, 2 trim guns, a brad gun, & a staple gun. all are Sencos. my original reason for buying senco was that they have a luggage type latch that opens the nose for clearing jammed nails. most others require disassembly. all guns sooner or later will jam now & again. i find my guns have fewer problems when i buy senco brand nails instead og generic nails. also an oil type compressor will outlive the oil-less types like the porter cable units sold on the big box stores. BUT if all you are using it for is to build hives an oil-less compressor should last a long time. my compressor is used almost daily.

IMHO best quality tool for a brad gun, & a staple gun are Sencos.
