Parts of a Stapler
These are the terms I use on my website. Most of them are real industry terms. Some are just figments of my imagination. This list may change and evolve as this site grows.
(1)Base -Flat metal part that sits on the desk
(2)Body -The part of the stapler that holds all the other parts (ramhead, magazine, etc. It is connected to the base by the rear pivot.
(3)Rear Pivot -A hindge, usually in the form of a pin that connects the body to the base of the stapler
(4)Pivot Spring-Spring that holds up the body. When the stapler is pressed, this spring gives a bit so the staples exit at paper level.
(5)Tacking Function Lever-The button or lever you press that allows the body to open from the base at a 180 degree angle, allowing for tacking.
(6)Staple Magazine-The channel where the staples are lined up before use. There are many different ways of accessing the Staple magazine.
(7)Staple Pusher-The piece that forces staples toward the front of the stapler
(8)Magazine Tension Spring-The spring that forces the staples towards the driver blade end of the stapler
(9)Ramhead-The thing you press to make the staples come out
(10)Drive Blade-A thin strip of metal that attaches to the ramhead so that when it is pressed, the drive blade goes downward, forcing a staple out.
(11)Staple Exit-The hole at the front of the magazine that staples exit from.
(12)Anvil-A thick piece of metal bolted to the base that makes the staples curl in or out (depending on the stapler).
