DESCRIPTION Dirt and abrasive materials present in all air lines will damage tool O-rings, valves and cylinders. The Craftsman '/2" Crown Stapler drives '/2" crown, 20 gauge staples from 3/,,,,to 1" long. Oillesa design eliminates daily oiling and oil stains on workpiece. Die cast magnesium body with textured rubber grip minimizes operator fatigue. Large capacity, bottom loading magazine with positive, quick action latch makes loading easy. Stapler features rear exhaust, single and rapid-fire operation, adjustable depth of drive control, rubber nose tip and storage case. Safety feature disables tool unless contact trip is pressed against workpiece. Tapered nosepiece provides operator with greater visibility for precise tastener placement. Rigid nosepiece reduces jamming. The '/2" Crown Stapler is excellent for upholstery, cabinetry, roofing felt, lattice and screen assembly. Moisture will reduce tool performance and life if not removed from compressed air. • A filter-regulator-lubricator system is required and should be located as close to tool as possible. A distance of less than 15 feet is recommended. Lubricator is not required for oilless tools. • Keep air filter clean. A dirty filter will reduce the air pressure to the tool causing a reduction in power and efficiency. The air supply system must be able to provide air pressure of 60 to 100 pounds per square inch at tool. • All hoses and pipes in the air supply system must be clean and free of moisture and foreign particles. Hoses must be rated for a maximum working pressure of 150 PSi or 150% of maximum system pressure, whichever is greater.

NOTE: For best results, use Sears fasteners only. 3 • STAPLING Turn tool upside down, depress latch and slide magazine cover open (see Figure 2). OPERATION Refer to Figures 5, 6, 7 & 8 (pages 4 and 5), WARNING: Read and follow all safety rules and operating instructions in this manual and on warning label of tool before using this tool. Keep this manual with the tool. WARNING: Do not use this tool without safety warning label. If label is missing, damaged or unreadable, contact Sears to obtain a new label WARNING: Never operate tool unless contact trip is in contact with workpiece. Do not operate tool without fasteners or damage to tool may result. Never fire fasteners into the air because fasteners may injure operator or others and damage to tool may result. • Perform "Safety Mechanism Check" as described in the Maintenance section (see page 6) prior to first use of tool and on a daily basis thereafter. • The tool is equipped with a rotating switch that can be set to rapid-fire or single-fire mode (see Figure 5). When the switch is set to single-fire mode, the tool will not drive a second fastener until the trigger is fully released and pulled again. • When the switch is rotated to rapid-fire drive fasteners continuously. A fastener time the contact trip is pressed against long as the trigger is maintained in the Figure 2 - Open Magazine • Insert fasteners into magazine. Place fasteners into magazine with the chisel points of the staples fascing up (see Figure 3). mode, the tool can will be fired each the workpiece, as pulled position. Figure 3 - Load Magazine • Slide magazine cover forward over magazine until latch snaps into place, locking magazine cover (see Figure 4). Figure 5 - Push and rotate switch to select Operation Mode SINGLE-FIRE OPERATION: The air tool is equipped with a contact trip safety mechanism that disables tool unless contact trip is pushed against work. To drive a fastener hold body firmly and press contact trip on workpiece where fastener is to be applied, Pull trigger to drive fastener into workpiece. To fire a second fastener lift the tool from the workpiece, release the trigger and then repeat the above sequence. RAPID-FIRE OPERATION: Figure 4 - Close Magazine • 4 The tool can also be operated by holding trigger depressed and pushing contact trip against workpiece. A fastener will be driven each time the contact trip is pushed against the workpiece. This operating procedure provides rapid-fire fastener driving. Never operate tool unless contact trip is in contact with workpieee. FASTENER VIEW WINDOW WARNING: All air power fastening tools recoil when operated. This recoil is caused by rapid driving of the fastener. Tool may bounce from recoil causing a second unwanted fastener to be driven. Reduce tool bounce by holding tool firmly in hand and pressing tool gently against workpiece. Let the tool do the work. This will atlow recoil of tool to bounce tool away from workpiece preventing the driving of second fastener. CONTACT This tool has a fastener viewing window on the magazine cover. Fasteners are visible through the window (see Figure 8). When the pusher is visible through the window (see Figure 9), the tool has approximately ten fasteners in the magazine. TRIP ADJUSTMENT The contact trip may be adjusted up or down to vary the depth of the fastener in the workpiece. To adjust, rotate depth control knob (see Figure 6) to raise or lower contract trip to desired setting. Fasteners Figure 8 - Magazine Full Figure 6 - Setting Depth Control CONTACT TRIP PAD Pusher The tool is equipped with a contact trip pad (see Figure 7) that prevents marring of finished surfaces by the contact trip during normal operation. Pad can be removed and stored on the storage sleeve located on the end cover of the magazine. Rex wrench is also stored on the magazine. Figure 9 - Magazine Empty OPERATING Figure 7 - Storing Contact Trip Pad and Wrench 5 PRESSURE • Use only enough air pressure to perform the operation. Air pressure in excess of that which is required will make the operation inefficient and may cause premature wear or damage to the tool. • Determine minimum air pressure required by driving some test fasteners into the workpiece, Set air pressure so that test fasteners are driven down flush with the work surface. Fasteners driven too deep may damage workpieee. COLD WEATHER OPERATION SAFETY CAUTION: Do not store in cold environment. Frost or ice could form inside tool affecting operation and damaging tool. Use a cold temperature lubricant, such as ethylene glycol, when operating tool in freezing temperatures. CHECK Inspect contact trip safety mechanism daily for proper operation. Do not operate tool if mechanism is not operating properly. With the red push-button switch in the rapid-fire mode, perform the following procedures to test safety mechanism: Refer to Figure 10 (page 8) • Leave trigger untouched while pushing contact trip into workpiece. Tool must not fire. • Pull trigger while contact trip is clear of work and pointed away from operator and others. Tool must not fire. • Depress and hold trigger. Push contact trip against work where fastener is needed. The tool should drive only one fastener each time the contact trip is pushed against workpiece. LUBRICATION This is an oilless tool. No lubrication is necessary. MAGAZINE MECHANISM AND PISTON-RAM Keep magazine and nose of tool clean and free of any dirt, lint or abrasive particles. If contact trip mechanism does not operate properly, repair tool immediately through Sears Service Center. The tip of the ram (Fig. 10, No. 11) can become dented or rounded over time. Replace any damaged or missing parts. Use the parts list to order parts. Square off the tip of the ram with a clean, fine hand file to extend the life of the ram and tool. Fastener firing will be more consistent if the ram tip is kept clean and square. REBUILD KITS Rebuild kits are available as spare parts, (see page 9). Tools should be rebuilt if tool fails to operate properly after extended use. See troubleshooting to determine required replacement parts. Disconnect tool from air supply before attempting or adjustment. repair NOTE: When replacing O-rings or cylinder, lubricate with grease before assembly. 6 SYMPTOM POSSIBLE CAUSE(S) CORRECTIVE ACTION Trigger cap leaks air 1.
