Recycling or ‘upcycling’ old furniture is a popular pastime nowadays as financially challenging times bring out the ‘make do and mend’ mentality in people who would like to replace their existing furniture but can’t afford to buy new. In fact, improving the look of old furniture and making it desirable again is not only a decent hobby but can also be a profitable side-line.
What has all of this got to do with air compressors and air tools, you may ask? The answer is that when it comes to re-upholstering furniture, an air stapler is the quickest and easiest way to achieve professional results. Air staplers are light, fast and easy to use and many can accept the fine-wire staples needed to make a clean and good-looking job of furniture upholstery and re-upholstery. Better still, the average pneumatic stapler only requires around 75 to 95 PSI for operation, which means that a small and inexpensive domestic air compressor will be more than up to the task. In fact, with the demand for items of ‘shabby chic’ furniture and the current trend for recycling you may only need to refurbish and re-upholster a few chairs before your air compressor and air stapler have paid for themselves.
