    I never have issues with the staples not holding. My issue is that the staples keep stabbing me when I go to grab it. Rivets would be a better option.

    Oh snap! Did he just call Scott W an idiot? I'm not sure that's ever been done before. I thought He was referring to Waldo who posts videos of himself grooming every week on Facebook.

    It wasn't meant to be used!

    It's just meant to appear professional!

    Fooker! We use them too. For as little as they cost they often last 6-8 years or longer. Usually they ugly out and get that Canadian look (missing a few teeth) before we toss them. :winky:

    OMG!!! You of all people should know better!

    Why in the world would you use staples to hold that together.

    The insert of the Grandi Brush is held in place with brads, not staples. But they are inserted by hand. Once in a while, you get one assembled when the worker was having a bad day or just distracted for a minute.

    We have experimented with several methods of assembling them. All have some drawback. Always considering new ideas.

    Cover by warranty. I hope your next one lasts 8 years like @Desk Jockey

    I was out in the hot sun today, pulling a mikey, grumpy and grooming a wool rug I just cleaned in the driveway, because the customers were too stubborn on letting me take it to a rug shop, and the head fell off like you see in the pic when I was finishing it.

    I'm cooled off now, so I'm in a better mood.

    Staples, brads, there's not much of a difference. Why not just screw it in? Seems like a more reliable way. That's what I just did today

    Matt is right.
    Chavez should retire, though from his posts I think he already did as every day he sounds more and more Vawter-ish.

    The tool can be made a lot sturdier. Both the metal holder (bands) and the way it is held together which becomes somewhat loose (develops a give a "jiggle") (happened to a few here).
    Charge a little more and make it durable.

    What I like about it is that it does not leave brush marks.
