    The Century Stapling Machine takes a pin (brass or copper but preferably not steel), lops off the ends, folds the middle portion of the pin into a staple shape and then inserts and fastens that newly made staple into your papers. All this is done with a single sharp blow to the plunger.

    The Machine measures 3.375" L x 2.4375" W x 5.75" H and weighs 1 pound 6 ounces. It is made from hardened steel and is nickel-plated. The Century Stapling Machine was available from approximately January 1897 until at least April 1902.
