Arrow E21 Rechargeable Stapler for JT21 Staples

Arrow designed the E21 Rechargeable Staple Gun on a lithium-ion battery platform. It has a 3-hour runtime or the equivalent of 1,000 shots. Arrow claims that the E21 is specifically designed for lighter-duty upholstery and craft projects, particularly ones where AC current and cords would present a limitation.


The Arrow E21 Rechargeable Stapler has a battery status light to let you know when a recharge is in order. It features a soft overmold grip and a bottom-load magazine. It includes a stand-up base that snaps on and can act as an anvil for stapling two materials together (like sheets of paper).

Arrow’s E21 Rechargeable Stapler retails for $34.97 and comes with a 2-year warranty. For more information, visit the website by clicking here.

Dremel is well-known for their rotary tools, but the new Multi-Max oscillating tool may put a fresh smile on the face of those who ever wanted to plunge cut into a door jamb or easily remove nasty old caulk from around a sink or tub enclosure. The Multi-Max features multiple attachments that allow it to be used for cutting, grinding, sanding scraping and even grout removal. It’s the kind of tool that actually does something no other tool does, making difficult and otherwise messy jobs rather simple.

Arrow PowerShot 5700 Staple Gun Preview

The PowerShot “Heavy Duty” Staple & Nail Gun features a forward action design, meaning that you actually press down on the front of the tool to actuate it, rather than the back end. This is not only more ergonomic, it also applies the most pressure to the point where the staple is firing, delivering more power and control with less effort. This makes the tool easy to use, but also gives it an unusual mechanism which is more prone to jams.
