The "Babe"
Streamlined design predecessor of the mass produced Swingline stapler. Invented by Stephen Crosby. This is a hard to find stapler.. First image is of the "Babe" before cleaning, second after. Third image is my 3D rendering.

    So what exactly was the process you went through to clean your stapler up. Looks brand new.
