Worth every penny! The rich purple colour is scrumptious! And it's a flat clinch
stapler, not something you find just anywhere. Once you start using flat clinch
staplers, you wonder how you managed without them. Stapled documents lie much
flatter and they don't catch and snag on the protruding staple backs.
I've been using the mini staple Max staplers for years (Jetpens, please add the
HD10-FL mini staple version!) and love them because they require so little
effort AND they clinch the staples flat.
The only complaints that I have had are that the small staplers do get defeated
by thick wads of paper, and there are very few sources for them. I've bought
mine from coin shops because apparently the mini flat clinch staples work well
on coin mounts. The mini version is very light and compact.
This new Vaimo 11 stapler is fantastic! It picks up where the little ones leave
off and handles those wads of paper
that I've had to fasten with conventional staplers. One gets very spoiled by the
low effort and smooth action of
the Max staplers with their ergonomic design. They are also surprisingly durable
and have held up very well for me over years of heavy use. The Vaimo 11 has the
same nicely finished construction and nice finish as my older Max staplers, but
it is a good bit larger and heavier - as befits its heavier duty function. It's
still definitely a compact stapler, smaller than a lot of ordinary office
staplers. It feels very solid and substantial in the hand. Like the small
version, it's meant to be a hand stapler, but it can be used as a desk stapler
I hope Jetpens will carry these wonderful staplers as a regular item.
Amazing pen for a keyring. Best one I've ever used because it's so short and
easy to carry, yet expands to a reasonable length. I immediately bought several
in different colors because I wanted to be sure I'd always have one handy.
I did have the problem of the pen opening by accident and lost a couple that
way. Finally solved the problem with an o-ring (from the local hardware store)
that fits around the top of the pen just below the wide end part. The o-ring
narrows the gap between the pen and cap so that it takes a little more effort to
push them together to release the cap. It has worked perfectly ever since.
O-rings in basic black are a perfect match for the black penpod, but I've never
seen o-rings in colors. So I use small rubber bands that match the colors of the
caps, and with several twists around the pen, they make passable substitutions
for o-rings. I found tiny, bright colored rubber bands in the hair accessories
department of my local pharmacy that work quite well.
