In my thrifting runs, I run into a lot of Tatum Buddy model staplers, but the other Tatum models occur less frequently – so this shiny chrome Secretary certainly caught my eye on the thrift store shelf. For $2 it was mine! :D
The Tatum Secretary opens for tacking and loads staples in a manner similar to common Swinglines. Friction latches hold things closed, so you just pull to open.
Two-position sliding anvil for interfold and exterfold stapling.
