For anyone who is interested in the question I posed earlier regarding high
capacity diaphragms, I was able to get the information I needed from APA and
am including it below for possible reference.

ICBO ER 1952, provides recognition for high load diaphragms using 14
gage staples.  The latest information I have is that the staples and the
tool used to drive them are available.  However, if ordering from
Paslode the staples may require a 4 week lead time and must be ordered a
full skid of 72 boxes at a time.  There are 3,100 staples per box.  They
don't stock a lot of the guns and stock none on the west coast.  Any
Paslode dealer should be able to get them.

Paslode Illinois Tel: 800/468-7403

Northern California Nail Company, Inc. Livermore, CA stocks the
following 14 gage staples. Tel: 925/443-7239, ask for sales.

1 1/4" Part No. 401149
1 1/2" Part No. 401178
1 3/8" Part No. 401179
2"       Part No. 401491
2 1/2" Part No. 401492

Gun: Model No. 4200S14/15 (shoots 14 and 15 gage staples), Part No.

Your report 138 deals with tests on some high capacity diaphragms which
were constructed with 14 gage staples, 2-3/4" or 3" long. I haven't been
able to find a manufacturer of either staples or staple guns in this
size class. Can you point me in the right direction?
