The TOT Speed Fastener is of stamped steel construction with Bakelite base and topper.
Yet another $2 Goodwill find, the TOT Speed Fastener (middle) was the contemporary little brother of the Parrot Speed Fastener Model 3 (back) and the forerunner of the incredibly common Swingline TOT 50 (front). If you love your old TOT 50 and you’re looking for a good, attractive art deco desk stapler that will take the TOT 50 staples, the TOT SF is the answer to your desires. Theoretically, the TOT Speed Fastener takes the no longer made “TOT SF”, staples, but these were probably identical to the newer “TOT 50” (AKA #10) staples, because #10’s will feed fine in an SF. They are very commonly available even now, so have no fear of not being able to easily feed your SF.
