Stapler

Image by PhotoAtelier (Glen)
A stapler is not just a stapler. When I was a kid I had this little Swingline stapler, red and just the right size for a little kid’s hand. I loved to be able to staple my school assignments with multiple pages together before turning them in. I was really into school supplies. Mechanical pencils. Cartridge pens. Nifty folders.

As a teacher I’ve been using staplers for years. The Swingline staplers supplied by schools jam all the time. They’re hard to reload and it never seems like the right staples are stocked in the supply room. I’m a frustrated and demanding office supply consumer. I have a half dozen staplers in my room at any given time, and I’m lucky to have one that actually works.

This past week and made another raid on the supply room and found this old Acco 40. I took it back to my room. I had report cards to staple, for pity sake, and there was no time to be beta-testing staples, but what was I do do? This looked like a classic, sturdy, the parts moved far more smoothly than any Swingline I’ve had.

It worked smoothly, reliably. I didn’t pinch myself reloading it and it DIDN’T JAM. I’ve seen them around for years, but I don’t believe I’ve ever had one. I’m not sure you can get them new any more. I just hope I can get the right staples for it. I’ve got to hide it from the kids, though, or they’ll break it. I’m gonna leave out some Swinglines that are already broken to lure them away from the Acco.
