Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I've got my father's old Ace 102 stapler. Beautiful heavy old thing. You can see photo of it at http://staplers.machinesoflovinggrace.com/ I've taken it apart to the extent possible, except for one screw that I can't stop from turning. Examining the underside, I can see the remnants of jammed, mangled staples still in the mechanism. What I can't do is figure out how to clear them.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

Found user manual online but no parts breakdown, I have a phone number at 1-800-343-9329 and they might be to email you the breakdown. Wish I had better info but this is all they furnish online.
