I'm reupholstering a dining chair that has a hardboard seat base.
My manual upholstering stapler doesn't stand a chance against it. Most staples don't even penetrate the surface.
I know I'm not supposed to ask for specific product recommendations on here, but are electric staple guns generally any more powerful than manual ones? (I'm not about to invest in a compressed air gun for this job).
How would you suggest I attach the fabric to the hardboard base without buying industrial equipment?
