Well, what "torture" I went through trying to get this device to staple small booklets I was attempting to assemble. The staples had to only go through a cover and eight pages of regular 20 lb. paper. It just would not work and jammed repeatedly, although the staples did actually fit into the stapler.
On a hunch, I decided to try other staples I had in the house. Found some old "Stanley-Bostitch" staples that were laying around and they worked so much better! Having said that though, I only had found enough to do 50% of the current job. At this time, I noticed that the "Model #s" of the two kinds of staples were different.
To make the blame thing of some benefit to me, I decided to search all over my city for the old type of staples. Six major retailers later, I could not locate 'em. Finally decided to do a search on the internet to see if I could find a supplier of the "OLD" staples I had on hand (that worked). I did find such a supplier and ordered a supply of 20,000 - hoping & praying that these would actually work in this saddle stapler when they arrived.
They were delivered here yesterday by courier, and lo and behold, they do indeed work quite well. The moral of this story is that you MUST have the exact, specific staple in order for this machine to work. DO NOT depend on the advice of the manufacturer as it pertains to which staple to use.Read more ›
Surprise -- it's a great stapler! I'm giving it 5 stars because... well... it staples. I was easily able to staple through 13 sheets of regular copy paper to bind my zine. And although it doesn't really show in the picture, there is non-skid / non-damage stuff on the bottom surfaces so that it can be used on a finished table. I am certainly satisfied.
Now, for staples. We had a box of cheap staples hanging around. These don't penetrate the paper very well. Name brand staples with nice sharp points work fine. If the staple doesn't drive cleanly and easily through 10+ sheets, try another brand. Please note, purchase only .25inch staples for this stapler, it doesn't handle longer staples.
Excellent for making 'zines, newsletters, CD booklets, manifestos, anything up to 25 sheets, which gives you 100 pages.
In addition to using this for work, it is also great for making little mini-books for kids to draw stories in.
If you are cutting to size, staple first, then cut afterwards for perfect cutting alignment.
