Intro: Increase Stapling Depth of Your Stapler
Sometimes I want to Staple pieces of cardboard together but i can't because standard staplers have a short stapling depth.
In this short instructable, I will show you how I improved its design.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- A Stapler.
- Cooking tweezers.
- Double compound epoxy.
- A masking tape.
- Small metal saw.
- A metal file.
- A Glue clamp
Step 2: Cut and File the Stapler
Cut the stapler in 2 and file it with the metal saw, also from above and bottom to ensure that the epoxy sticks better.
Step 3: Glue It
Prepare the epoxy and spread a generous layer on the top and bottom of the stapler, then align the tweezers on it and clamp them together.
Optional but Important: You need to align the staple bender ( the metal piece on the bottom part of the stapler ) to the top part where the staples come so that when you staple them, they close correctly...if they don't align correctly, you 'll end up with a crocked stapler :D.
Let it dry for an hour or so.
