|I am using T50 staples and removing them as we progress.
The kids are primarily responsible for removing the staples.
For the inner layers I did not use stapling strips.
Here is Jessie demonstrating proper staple loosening technique. Small
hammer and modified screwdriver at ~30° angle. Once the staple crown is
raised it is pulled with the nippers shown in the foreground. A
large "Channel Lock" style pliers works well also.
Removing each staple this way leaves a nasty dent which is then
filled as the next layer goes on if it was into a frame or batten. Holes
through all layers between frames must be filled before glue-up of the
next layer or the inside of the hull gets covered with nasty glue
"zits" which pull off the inner coating when removed!
Current pay scale is 1¢ to 2¢ per staple. Curved areas have the
stapes set deeper due to greater pressure during application and are harder to remove.
At 1¢ per staple removed, the cost is approximately the same as the
Monel or Stainless staples that would nominally not have to be removed.
