How to put the spring back in the handle of Arrow T50 Stapler?

I struggled for 30 min with screw drivers and pliers... before coming up with this, then it took only 30 seconds.Here's my hack. 1 Take some thin string or in my case I used maybe 12 inches of old fishing line. I wrapped it around the part of the spring that needs to be pushed back. I tried wrapping it once, but it kept slipping off. So I found wrapping it around 3-4 times did the trick. 2 I then fed the other end of the fishing line to the back of the handle, pushed on the spring with my finger as far as I could to get it into position, and when I reached that point, I pulled on the fishing line to hold it in place. Once I put tension on it, it held so I could line up the holes and slide in the pin. 3 I then pulled on the fishing line to remove it from the housing. You are all set.be82400f-3fbf-49d8-82c8-4e3a47ffd22a.jpgvideocapture_20221023-153338-cc1uraxitwvlfxedzvykypxj-d-2.jpgvideocapture_20221023-153405-cc1uraxitwvlfxedzvykypxj-d-3.jpgvideocapture_20221023-153418-cc1uraxitwvlfxedzvykypxj-d-4.jpg

I want to make a necklace for my sons wedding with pearls but they are so small and delicate I am not sure what thread will work with it?

Pearls often have very small holes. You need to use a natural silk thread or another very fine thread. It really depends if you plan to knot between pearls, if so that will affect your choice of thread, so make sure you get advice from a beading expert before you buy.

Constraints about making a Jaws of Life model with cardboard, split pins, syringes and plastic tubing.

How do you lower the whistle volume on the train

Unlikely you can on the mystery make train. If it is adjustable there would be a small pot-potentiometer on the circuit board.
