Question about Black & Decker 5700 Powershot Forward Action Stapler
There is no resistance when I press down and no staples come out. It was working fine and then quit.
I hae the same problem. I don't know the real names of the parts so I will make up my own and try to describe them. The problem with mine is that the "hammer" (the piece in front that slams down on the staple and shoots it out) is broken. The "hammer" has two notches that the tension spring (actually a metal bar with two tongs not to be confused with the spring the returns the handle to the at rest position) fits into. One of these notches on the hammer is broken. Therefore one side is not attached to the tension spring the causing the other side to slip off and since the hammer is not connect to the tension spring you get no resistance. Unfortunately I could not find anywhere that sells a replacement peice.
