This grey industrial Swingline Speed Stapler 4 looks very Art Deco, almost like a train from the front. It is in working condition. The bottom reads "Speed Products, Inc., Long Island City, N.Y." with quite a few patent numbers listed. (This was before the company was widely known as "Swingline") The front of the stapler is marked as "Swingline Speed Stapler 4". This type of stapler is what they call a "magazine" stapler, as first invented in the 1938. One of the advantages of magazine staplers was the invention of top (or open channel) loading magazines beginning with Speed Products Co.'s Swingline Speed Fasteners. The conventional magazine stapler gained an important edge over competing technologies with the development of cohered or frozen wire staples (wire staples that were glued together).

On the inside the following is printed: "Use Swingline Staples No. 3 or No. 4" It also says, "Use Genuine #4 Swingline 100% round wire staples for best performance". To replace staples you simply push the levers forward to open. During use its rubber feet help to hold it in place. This heavy duty stapler measures 8.25" long and 4.25" tall and 2.25" wide.

This number 4 is in great vintage condition, aged to perfection, with minimal wear to its classic grey finish. The corners and edges do have some spots where the industrial coating has worn off. The original owner of this stapler (whom is part of an important family from here in Eugene, OR), very lightly etched his name into the side of the stapler. The pushing pad on the top of the stapler is covered in a really soft worn rubber. On the bottom I noticed a few very small cracks on it. This item is sold as is.
