When this happens, you have to release spring pressure against the staple strip then invert the staple gun and BEING ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT THE STAPLE OPENING IS NOT POINTED TOWARD YOU use pliers or a similar tool to remove all of the damaged staple. Reinsert the staple strip, point the gun away from you and test operation.
it is a nuisance. try digging them out with a small screwdriver or a pair of needle nose pliers. also some thin but stiff wire works OK (thinner then coathanger) don't be afraid to bang on the stapler a bit also
Its not your husbands fault Truthfuly the gun is a peice of junk it was never made to last they start to rust on the inside and that bindes it all up you have broken springs honestly throw it in the trash and get a new one but spray WD 40 in it this will make it last longer
Staple gun are simple device and the 'shooting' mechanism is just a sring loaded bar that hammers the staple out: the problem is usually a jam/stuck staple where the staple in the orifice where the staple comes out. Just use a small screwdriver and /or plier to remove the stuck staple which could be jammed against the hammer bar. You may need to force the hammer bar backwards with the help of your small flat head screwdriver.
There is a small springs steel wire that fits into the chuck. the bit slides into the chuck and then into the spring and the spring holds the bit inside the chuck. This ring seems to be missing. Thus the bit falls out. You might try going to a hardware store and they make a device that is two magnets held together with a rubber band. When they are together there is a small hole in the center. You can slide any screwdriver or bit into the hole in the center and it magnetizes the bit or driver. Magnetizing your bits should keep them from falling out of the ratchet screwdriver.
Turn the gun upside down and pull out the black plastic loading thingy, drop the nails in the left hand side of the gun,press against side with finger and slide black loading bit back over top of nails-hey presto!
The staples are held together with an epoxy. I have used staples that are older than 10 years. The problem is the gun. Check for dirt or a burk in the magazine as well as a bent pusher blade. My gun also had a problem loosing a screw and nut that attached at the blade guide.
Take out the screw/nut combo @ the end of the gun where you load the staples. The whole rail that holds the staples will then come out and you can then get the little devils of the nested, jammed, rousted up staples out by sliding them out with a screwdriver. Don't jam the screwdriver into your fingers/hand when doing it.
