You're allowed to dissagree, but I am not sure for how much longerLOL

The vonhaus I got from amazon, I've now used, 2 sticks of brads and it seems OK. The control for 'power' seems to do naff all. And it doesn't have a soft foot, so tends to leave a mark. Apart from that I've done what I needed it for, and now it's in stock for when I might need it again.

OK, cheers. I'll keep that in mind. But since I've got air, and a cheapo brad gun, I'll keep with that, until I feel the need

You left a space on the end of that URL so it didn't work, this will do the job:

So after using the clark bandit compressor and nail gun recommended by Markie, i can confim its a fantastic piece of kit! Effortlessly fires brads into plywood/mdf. Takes a moment to set it up out the box but when its running its perfect. The only criticism is the quick release on the end of the airline to the gun leaks sometime,  iv just ordered another coupling kit to put on the end so its all good.. well worth £140 tho!!!! Makes lining up and holding panels in place while putting screws in a dream! Put it through its paces building 6 cabs and 5000 brads later.

Every so often Machinemart have VAT free offers. Mine was only about £115.00 when I bought it.

Is it possible to build a good quality cab with out screws? In the past I have always had a second person around so one person just holds the panels while the other drives in a screw with an impact driver. 

Can you just glue an staple a cab together and expect it to last? 

I am thinking of building then clear coating some cabs and I don't want a bunch of ugly screw heads down the side. 

Answer like I know nothing, I have never used a powered nail/staple gun before.

Just remember that a good glue joint is stronger than the sorrounding wood. If you can manage to get enough clamping-pressure on the joint while glueing, it will be as strong as if it had screws. 
For me, the screws are just clamps for glueing and for holding the panels in the right place before the glue has set.
But i have to admit, that i just leave them in there... just to ease my mind a little LOL
