This machine uses a nylon cam driven by a motot to raise the clinchers and close the staple legs. Often the nut on the back of the shaft that runs in the cam will come loose or the bracket will fatique and bend. A bit of a pain to get to but a little work and you will see haw the staple / clinching drive works.

How do I change staples in a bizhub600

Depend on which staples. Saddle stich (example, Church service program with staples in the middle type) or booklet/corner with the staple on the left side or the corner. open finisher pull out the big section to the left side see to blue/green handles rear one is for corner staple which goes the fastest do to being used the most. when you pull them out there is a plastic guide they should follow if they don't line up power off the machine close all door power on machine. the stapler should go to default location which allows the staple cart. to be removed. DO NOT THROW THE CART AWAY!!!! YOU will be replacing the staples in the cart. Once out Push at he bottom pull the top. DO NOT PULL THE WHITE WRAP ON THE NEW STAPLE UNTIL INSTALLED in the cart.

Master mechanic electric staple gun tre-300-mm

1. To load the Master Mechnic TRE 300, (photo) first put on your safety glasses and then unplug the tool to prevent an accidental actuation while you are working on it

2. Always use the right size and kind of staples or brads.There is or should be a label (photo) letting you know which staples are the right ones for this tool. If it is there, you will find it on the side of the "head", the cylindrical structure with the red cap on the top, just ahead of the trigger. The "tail" is the end where the electrical cord comes into the tool. If the label is missing, there is a very comprehensive color-coded chart here that should help you figure it out.

3. There is a chromed steel "shoe" running the length of the tool on the bottom, from tail to head, that contains the strip of staples and a simple mechanism for moving them into firing position one at a time. This is where you load staples. Observe that at the head end of the shoe, there is a little area of raised bumps and a notch. (photo) The bumps are there to provide some grip (see step 5). The notch locks the shoe into the right position for using the tool (see step 7).

4. The staple compartment is held closed by a small leaf spring (not visible) inside the tool at the tail end. The spring pushes against the staple compartment, pushing it forward against the head end and engaging the notch in the chromed shoe with a mating notch in the black plastic tool body.

5. To open, grasp the chromed shoe and push it straight back toward the tail. This will compress the leaf spring that you can't see, and will open the notch, permitting the head end of the shoe to pivot down and away from the head. The shoe will remain attached at the tail end by a small pivot pin that acts like an axle.

6. As you pivot the shoe to open it wide, you will see a movable "follower" and a second spring, a coil spring. (photo) The coil spring puts tension on the follower. The follower in turn pushes the strip of staples firmly against the head. By doing so the second staple in the strip is moved into position to be driven as soon as the first staple is fired and gone.

7. To load, open the shoe all the way. (At this point, if you see a staple jam or some debris in the shoe, you should remove it before attempting to load any new staples.) The follower will move all the way back toward the tail and stay there, but it doesn't take much to send it zooming back toward the head, so be careful. Turn the gun upside down and drop a strip of staples, points "up" (facing up as the tool is upside down), into the channel formed by the plastic body of the tool. Leaving the tool upside down, slowly and carefully swing the shoe back into the firing position and push it firmly into place until the chrome notch fully engages with the plastic notch.

8. Check your work, plug it in, and you're ready to go.

I have a Pro Sharp Shooter TR 200. WHILE I HAD TROUBLE loading the staples in, I think I have them in properly, the staple cartridge door is closed but the staples aren't coming out. What am I doing...

Make sure that you are using staples made for this tool. Remove the staples and look for a jammed staple at the drive head which will block further staple movement. Make sure there is spring tension at the rear of the staple row when the slide is closed. Hope this helps!

How to remove jammed staples in staple gun?

Take out the small bolt that is secured with a nut at the back of the gun (at the end where you feed the staples) -- then drop the inset. Now you have access to the jammed area. Clear out jammed staples and put the stapler back together. Easiest way is to hold the nut and turn the bolt from the other side.
