Funny how it goes I used my buddy's Sunbeam tools and I found the opposite . But then I'm a lefty

I thought the same way at first as well. That is until the MPDC broke form from being so stiff and the Sunbeam is still nice and strong.

Well I spoke to soon. I broke my Sunbeam one as well. I've moved on to using two staples. So far it was worked great. Better than both tools.

Hey LF. I bet shipping on the kits is cheaper because of handling more than shipping. Nils can just grab a bag off a shelf rather than have to measure and all the other fun stuff.

Just a guess of course.
