    Fixing tolerances for metal studs

    It will be fine. As I said before not breaking the paper on the board is the most important thing. If you do just put another one in an inch away. Self drill screws are for heavier gauge metal such as met/ sec. Normal fine thread drywall screws suffice.

    Don't overthink it. The key thing with plasterboarding is Don't break the paper on the board it's the strength. Remember to stagger the joints opposite sides of the m/f.

    Advice regarding metal studs prior to plasterboard.

    Do the timber in 2 bits. Fix the top piece first through the track and from underneath then the second insert into the track and fix top and bottom.

    Just checked it was a rapid 7.2 v. £90. But I would advise you to go with the milwaukee. Its about £110 bare tool plus another £40 for a cheap charger and batteries.

    Dewalt Carbon stapler

    Can't remember off hand its a while ago I got it. If I bought one now I would get that milwaukee one. It looks the biz. I think I paid £80 or £90. I would pay the extra next time as replacement batteries are cheap, so are chargers.
