Bodnar720 In regards to the pneumatic hog ring gun is only 700 to crazy people haha check out empire staple they carry them for 2-300 and it may seem steep until you are putting on a few covers

I use to work for Classic Soft Trim, they had the stanley-bosh and man I refuse to go back haha

Metal Twister So sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Been deep in work and the Holidays. If you still need this HartcoŽ Clinch Clips - Spring Anchor Clip - LockNails™ its a good place to start.

slodat Do you have a link, part number, etc for the clip with the liner, that will work with the Hartco 65?

I really appreciate you turning me onto this.

Metal Twister I failed to get the clips with the plastic lining. The plastic lining helps prevent squeeks so Im having to wrap each spring with a small piece of thick teflon tape prior to using the clip over the tape. Think its going to work ok but next time I will be ordering the right clips and the whole process will be a lot quicker...

slodat How are those clips working out? I got a great deal on a Hartco 65. Time to order clips!

Metal Twister So I finally got the correct clips and the thing is working perfect now. The guy I got it from threw in some of the narrower clips to get me started. Problem was that the would not stay centered so I got a lot of misfires. Is there some type of spacer to keep the smaller clips centered? Anyway I got the wide ones now and the gun is flawless so it doesn't really matter I guess. Thanks again Dan for helping me through this. Its guys like you that make this forum so valuable and fun to be on! Thanks again, M.T.

slodat Metal Twister, please update the thread with the info on the clips. I just bought a Hartco 65! I didn't even know they exist. This will be a nice time and hand saver!

DanTwoLakes The model 65 gun is no longer available. The HR24C clip will also work. It's a little higher than the 23C, but it will work. All the model 65 clips work in all the model 65 guns, no matter what letter designation there is behind the model number.

Metal Twister Well to be honest the clip saga is an on going thing as of now. The original
order was for HR-CLP-23C Which is 3,600-Pack 7/8"x1/2"x11/64" Paper Lined/Polycord Collated Cushion Clip. That number has been discontinued and the new number per Mr. distributor is HR-CLP-23 for the same product. NOT!

So the order is on its way and I get curious after your post on the cost. The HR-CLP-23 is not paper lined... So I shoot Mr. Distributor a not telling him of the situation and I will be returning the package unopened. I call Bostich Stanley and they're not sure that it is a discontinued item or not? They are going to get back to me... LOL Their tech service didn't even know what a Hartco tool did or what it is all about. Pretty scary if ya ask me. So I asked them to have some one give me a call that knew for sure which clips were variable for the model 65 gun. I have also noticed that some of the guns have a few letters after the model 65 in the literature. My gun is a model 65. I'm wondering if my gun will also shoot the stuff the same as the ones with the letters behind the model Number?

This is who I'm working with... each time the number changes it gets a little more expensive. LOL I guess I will wait to calculate the cost when I actually get the product.
05-24-2012 02:45 AM
DanTwoLakes Even cheaper? What supplier are you using for the clips?
05-23-2012 10:47 PM
Metal Twister I lied Dan! Went back and checked the price while sober and it's .0157 each
05-23-2012 02:58 PM
DanTwoLakes BTW, I found that lifting up on the two pieces you're connecting and holding them together with the hook on the bottom and then actuating the tool seems to work the best, as opposed to pushing down. I know that doesn't seem to make sense, but try it.

1/2 cent apiece?? It would almost be worth it for me to buy a gun, I'd save a fortune on clips.
05-23-2012 01:28 PM
Metal Twister Amen Dan... I cant remember getting this excited about a tool for a long time!
And the lined clips are on the way. They run less than 1/2 cent each... Go figure.
