SOURCE: Stapler works intermittantly

If not the power source or cord, the next activation point would be the trigger. Does the stapler make any sort of noise when the trigger is depressed? What type and model stapler is it?

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.

SOURCE: Can't get the staples to go in. It's a sears

Pull out the part that loads the staples, turn the gun upside down, put the staples in the bottom of the gun and push the loader back in. It took me awhile to realize that you don't load them on the piece that pulls out of the gun.
Cheers.

SOURCE: my craftsman easy fire stapler diagram

Mine stopped working last night. I took it apart and was able to reassemble it properly.

When both sides are rejoined the tip of the spring has to be inserted in the hole on the corresponding side (note red arrows on both pics)

This is a great stapler when it's working.

Will the Arrow staples # 405 fit into my Craftsman 68464 staple gun ?


thats the picture of the manual staple gun
and the picture of type of staples you want

on the staple box confirms you can use the staples in that
sears craftsman
note the staple has inches and metric dimensions

all you need to check is the stapler eject system is not worn out
or cause a jam as you try to staple
if sticky .. try some sewing machine oil on the stapler workings

How do I reload staplers?


There are two basic designs of staplers. The most common type is the Swingline or Stanley Bowstitch types. At the business end of the stapler there is a small catch that you need to pull rearward and the front staple head will drop down. Inside, you will see a metal bar and a spring. Pull the spring back towards the rear of the stapler and insert a full clip of staples appropriate for your stapler. Release the spring slowly so the metal tab pushes against the staples... should be pointed tips down. Put the stapler on a firm surface and press it as you would when stapling something. The two parts of the stapler head will join back together again.

Model 351184540 CRAFTSMAN COMBINATION NAILER STAPLER Parts

You can price parts and decide if it is worth it, is the gun old, used much etc. If you don't use it much HF sells inexpensive ones. If you use it more often buy a better name brand at HD, Amazon E bay.
I have a combo nailer/stapler and i only use it for staples. The combo will put a bite mark on your wood. I use a nailer that doesn't leave marks so cleanup before finishing is much easier.

Craftsman 68514


The replacement pack for this gun say the staples are compatible with "Craftsman 68514 and 68517; Arrow Brand T50 Staplers T50 and T55; and Stanley/Bostitch TR110 and BT110 staple guns", so I assume they are also backwards compatible. That's just an assumption though.

WHERE do I open it to refill it??


Located on the end opposite of where the staples come out, there is a spring loaded cap. Push it in toward the base of the stapler and slightly down to release the retaining hook. then let the spring release the pressure rod and pull it out. Connedted to the end of the rod you will see a plunger that is shaped like a short run of staples. Make a mental note of how and where this plunger slides into the base of the stapler. Place a run of staples into the stapler in the same manner that the plunger fits then replace the plunger into the same place following the run of staples. Compress the spring into the stapler and attach the hook as it was. Now you are ready to work.

NOTE: If you cannot compress the spring enough into the stapler you have inserted too many staples, just remove some of the run of staples and try again.

See above


317b762.jpg4a538aa.jpg067f3f0.jpg5077a62.jpgca392ef.jpge76904e.jpg77309d5.jpgThis is an older b&d stapler but the designs are similar in most cases. The position of the springs, and the order you put them in, are an obvious factor.
The parts that overlap go in after the parts underneath.
When you have one half assembeled you should not have to force the cover to go on, it should just sit in place while you put the screws back in.
If the handle coil spring and the flat spring are not seated properly the top cover will not go on easily.
These types of staplers are designed to clear from jamming without being taken apart, the staples, under normal circumstances, do not have access to the body of the unit past the flat spring.
As with any tool forcing the tool after a fault will only make matters worse, I would try some light oil or spray lubricant first before taking anything apart, these springs can be a pain to get back in, which is why I have not taken this one any further apart. Hope this helps you. If it does please let fixya know.
Regards
Les
