Can you literally hand staple these tops? I have a high quality hand stapler but haven't tried any tests, is there hope to just hand staple it?
How about stainless staples so they don't rust, is there such a thing?
Yes, there are stainless steel staples available for most staplers. Hand stapling would be difficult, but not impossible, they used to put them on with tacks and a tack hammer. I generally use my BEA gun (the blue one on the right) with stainless staples for tops, but the Central Pneumatic 96359 shoots Arrow T-50 staples, and would work also. There are stainless staples for it also. You could also buy a DuoFast electric stapler that shoots T-50 staples.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
