Rapid 106 Electric Saddle Stapler Review

ISP Rapid 106 Electric Saddle and Flat StaplerAre you in need of an electric stapler that can be used to do both saddle and flat stapling? One model you may want to consider is the Rapid 106 electric saddle stapler (found here). I have used the Rapid 106 stapler and this is my review.

To begin with, the Rapid 106 electric stapler is used for stapling booklets, paper, retail packaging, chipboard and more. It is considered by many people to be one of the most versatile electric staplers available today. The Rapid 106 Saddle Staple has been around for years and continues to use the same time-tested design as it had 10+ years ago.

The Rapid 106 is designed to be mounted to the edge of a counter, table or workbench by use of a clamp. It is very easy to mount, and once installed, is very solid. This saddle stapler is easy to loosen the clamp and re-position the stapler if needed.

The Rapid 106 is electric powered, using a motor to staple paper. The Rapid 106 staple head is capable of stapling through up to 40 sheets of standard 20# paper at a time, which is pretty nice for an electric stapler. The staple head itself has a pressure adjustment dial that allows the operator to adjust the striking force of the stapling head against the anvil, depending on the amount of paper being stapled.

The motor in the Rapid 106 can be activated by use of a micro-switch or a foot pedal. This versatility makes the Rapid 106 extremely easy to use. I personally like using the food pedal on the Rapid 106 because I can hold the paper with two hands. This is often referred to as hands-free operation.

A guide can be set up on the stapling platform of the Rapid 106 if you are double stapling paper for booklet making. Simply slide the folded paper one direction, staple and then slide the paper to the other side of the guide and staple again.

The entire stapling process takes just seconds. While I have personally used the Rapid 106 more for saddle stapling, the stapling platform can be adjusted for flat stapling. This adjustment takes just seconds. The ability to do both saddle and flat stapling is really nice in a stapler of this size.

One of the nicest features is the Rapid 106’s ability to be linked up with several staplers for simultaneous operation. This is sometimes referred to as ganging. A kit is available for the Rapid 106 that will allow multiple staplers to be used at the same time.

Overall I really like the Rapid 106 saddle stapler. It is very affordable, considering what it does, and the production speed benefits over a manual stapler are tremendous. It can be used for heavy-duty and continuous stapling without any problems. I highly recommend this model.
