Ace 102 stapler can jammed staples be cleared?

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.

SOURCE: Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....

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.

How do you load a ace heavy duty clipper stapler model number 82?


I found some information here:
ACE STAPLE Quality Tradition for Over 50 Years

It takes the Clipper Undulated Heavy Duty 3/8" Staples. On the back of the stapler, there is a loading rod. Remove the loading rod and place a set of staples in the chamber, then re-install the loading rod.

How do I load the clipper 700 stapler?


At the back of the stapler, there is a piece that you push in and then pull out. You load the staples in there and then replace the piece you pulled out.

I have an ACE aircraft aluminum stapler... I bought Ace Heavy Duty Staples 3/8" 10mm Narrow Crown Arrow T50 staples but cannot get the arm to load with them on it.


Possibly you are trying to load it from the back with the arm out. This way does not work. With this stapler you must pull the arm out all the way and then drop the staplers in the bottom. Too easy, right? I felt like a dumb a$$ after fighting this one for an hour. By the way, it will take heavy duty staples but you need to match the item codes printed on the side of the stapler with the box at ACE hardware. Hope this helps... Say "yes" to "was this solution helpful?" so I can know that im not the only one who did this wrong :)

Hello. I have a model #1000 Swingline Power Gun. It says,the extra heavy duty staple gun on the handle. I would like to purchase a box of 1/4" and 3/8" staples. The gun is so old I don't know the new...


Went to the local hardware and read the labels. The store brand fit and works as good as the original staples. The 1000 has outlasted several of the new fashion staplers. And the local hardware store is an Ace Hardware.

Problem loading gun..Where do we put in the staples and change the dial to accomodate it? fred


The staples should load in through the end of the hammer stapler. The end is spring loaded to push the staples forward, so push the end - usually a crome square - into the handle end then move that part up approximately 1/4 inch and pull back. The spring mechanism should slide out so you can add new staples. These staplers take a specific size of staple and a certain number to allow you to put the spring mechanism back into the stapler. If you do not know the correct size for your stapler someone at your local hardware store can help you find the correct size and they will probably even show you how to load it. Good luck!
