I have had this particular stapler for nearly ten years. When I first got together with my sweetie he was working at an office supply store, and I went in to see him... thats how I ended up purchasing this Swingline 747.
For about ten years now, I have used this swingline stapler a few times a week. It doesn't get alot of use granted, but considering that it is still around, still dependable and it still works as well as it did the day I purchased it says alot about the quality of the Swingline 747 stapler.
I have never had any problems finding staples to fit this stapler, which is an added bonus. I will probably be using this swingline stapler for years to come. It was a great investment, and addition to my home office. I will also always have the memory of young love, and the day I couldn't wait to see my boyfriend, so I went to his store to say hi, and ended up buying this stapler so we could talk for a few minutes.
