Question about Stanley Tools & Hardware - Others
I have one of the old Bostitch T5 staplers. This thing is ancient. It belonged to my dad and hadn't been used in a while. It still works and still has staples in it. I couldn't figure out how to reload it. A search turned up this link, which is exactly what I needed. I might add that you have to pull back on that nose piece a bit before it will come up. I used a flat screwdriver to help me out a bit, as it was resistant, having not been used in so long. Hope this helps som eone else.

What size staples fits this stapler?

Just solved this with my own T5. When you squeeze the handle and hold it down, you'll see a nut/bolt at the end opposite of the staple opening. Unscrew it and pull the cover off. It may take some effort, but it comes off. Now you can lift the depressor plate out without having to pry it up. In one motion, push the front piece back to get it off the tabs and then up to open. insert staples and reverse the process to reassemble.

If it is stuck/stiking try lubrcating it. WD40 (or similer) will do it wonders.

Don't use wd40 it attracts dust, I like using teflon spray (white)
