Question about Black & Decker 5700 Powershot Forward Action Stapler
I just had to repair one of these guns for work. It's a bit tricky, seeing as you are dealing with springs and such...but it can be done. Take your time ...don't set the springs until you have things set in place and lined up. Make sure the pins are in place. Set the flat spring first (it is the toughest) while the handle is depressed all the way in. Gently open the handle and then set the torsion spring. Take your time here...springs are set and they could make all the pieces fly out if you don't quickly get the other half put on it. Hope this helps.

"LOVENHEIM" was right on the money. I found difficulty in aligning the white plastic bumper (between the frame and the flat spring). When I looked at the inside of the other half of the cassing, I realized that there was a slot into which the bumper must fit when the two halves were brought together. I then was able to fit the bumper correctly. One other thing, you must remember to fit the staple holder before putting the two halve together. The exploded diagram was invaluable and I could't have made the repairs without it. Thanks Lovenheim.

Could somebody PLEASE reload the picture or diagram? The original is lost and Fixya support doesnt seem to be interested in finding it.
From the number of readers and reporters of this problem, it is obviously a widesprea one, so, I join in with my voice shouting........

My solution was to buy a new staple gun. They are $20.00 at The Home Depot. The time it would take me to figure out how to put it back together was worth the Jefferson note to buy a new one. I kept all the parts so I'll work on it someday.
