I do a lot of building paper and rain screen application and had this idea when I was holding my razor knife and tacker in the same hand. I thought it would not only save a bit of time but also look pretty damned cool.
Some say its dangerous due to the rearward facing blade , but my response to that is EVERY tool can be dangerous. I've been using this for years and still have one fully functioning eye.
The build is pretty simple: remove the plastic from the metal razor knife track, stick the track on the side of a stapler with the adhesive of your choosing (I used Scotch Extreme mounting tape). I also added a Velcro stopper to stop the blade from retracting too far and falling out.
Interesting. Saving you from using two hands might actually be a safety improvement.
This reminded me of the Cole-Bar project on Kickstarter. It's essentially a crowbar/hammer combo. I sponsored it a while back; still really curious if it turns out to be useful, or gimmicky, or I if even end up getting one in hand.
I hadn't heard of Scotch Extreme tape. Thanks, added it to my Amazon wishlist.
