I bought this for someone as payback for a favor, so I can't provide a review. Wish I could be of more help, but I didn't use it. I can tell you that when the box was opened, all the parts were nicely organized in a sturdy carrying case with compartments and squeeze slots for fittings. The bonus - and my reason for choosing this - was that it came with a cable-driven extension for use in narrow or curved places in which the body of the rotary motor won't fit. I found this accessory to be invaluable when a friend of mine had to cut out the topmost 2" section of 4" diameter PVC pipe that was buried in concrete. The circumferential cut to remove the top 2 inches of this submerged PVC had to be made from inside the pipe, and could not have been managed without the cable extension to his rotary tool. I don't know if Buffalo's rotary has as much torque or longevity as Dremel's, but it sure was a lot more affordable!
I love these fasteners! You can create your own filing system anytime with anything you have on hand. I've used them on monthly reports Ikeep track of and so far they are going strong and it's been 5 years. I open and close them several times a month and I've never had one break on me. I simply use a two-hole punch for my papers and clip them at the top of any thing. Wonderful product--- Can't live without them.
I purchased this tool to install Shaw Epic 3/8 inch thick engineered hardwood flooring. Unlike most flooring that is installed by stapling through the top of the tongue, this particular flooring requires stapling through the lower groove. This means that the guide needs to sit just about 1/8 inch off the floor to drive the staple in the correct position. Unfortunately, there are very few tools fit this specification, and the ones that do cost $*** and up. The less expensive adjustable staplers (including this one) seem to have a minimum setting of 1/2 inch. Given the great price of this tool, I decided to take a chance to see if I could adapt it to work. I was easily able to modify the guide by grinding about an 1/8 inch off the metal part of it, and then I extended the adjustment slots in the plastic part. Once I did this, the guide shoe fit perfectly onto the lower section of the groove in the flooring planks and the staples were driven correctly. The exhaust cap on top of the tool is metal, so I am able to use a rubber mallet to give a gentle tap there for seating the planks, then a pull of the trigger drives a staple. I've laid a few hundred square feet of flooring so far, and the tool has performed flawlessly. I am very happy with this tool, especially given the great price. Note that it also comes with a standard guide head, so when not needed for flooring, it can be used as a regular pneumatic stapler.
