#1480: StepStapler

How annoying is it when you need to join together a vast bunch of papers and yet you can’t find the giant office stapler?

Today’s invention is a modified conventional stapler. It has a streamlined staple head and base (blue) which are attached to a vertical, graduated support (grey).

The head and base are stabbed sideways into the sheaf of papers at position a) and a (red) staple inserted. Then the head is moved down a notch and reinserted at position b)…etc.

In this way, many sheets are held together permanently (without having to dig out a giant bullclip).
