Only after you've had an employee file for workers comp because of carple tunnel from squeezing the point gun and then refuse to assemble pictures because of "doctors orders" from that point until you can figure out a way to fire her *** without getting sued and you see some of her coworkers look at her and think "Heeyyyyyy, I think maybe my wrist hurts too!."Originally posted by J Phipps TN:
When you refer to the fletchers by colors, are these the ones you need a compressor to use?
I don't have a compressor and I have always used the Yellow fletcher gun. It works great, but I'm curious about how many of you use a compressor for your points?
Is it really necessary?
As far as I can tell, my Fletcher FrameMaster is like the one shown in the picture displayed by John Ranes. I can flip over the magazine that holds the normal 5/8" long framers points and insert the 3/8" long Fletcher's glazier points, which look exactly like the framers points, except smaller.

Frankly, I don’t know the difference among the various colored Fletchers, but for my “green” one, you are able to insert stacks of triangle shaped points in lieu of the standard diamond ones. This give a much less visible footprint from the front of the frame.
