Bostitch has been around for over 100 years and the B8 Plier Staplers have been around for about as long. For years the standard on the office market for light duty staplers are the Bostitch Plier Staplers like this one. Over the last few years however Bostitch has focused on the Home and Construction market and these in particular are not as common in offices as they once were.

This is a very high quality stapler at a very low price. The Black color and the Light weight (under 6 pounds) makes this a work horse of a stapler. This is a single staple stapler with a version with a 3/8" chuck ("B000W129JC") also available. The Staples are the round Bostitch Powercrown staples.
"Compatible with a wide range of both wire and strip: up to 1/16″ thick (6.5 range) and up to 1-7/8″ wide (5.5 range) and up to 1/8″ wide (4.25 range). Compatible with staples from 1/16″ to 1/2″" in diameter and strip from 1/6″ to 1-3/16″" in diameter."

"Hard wired standard CSA 22.2 household current interrupter rating. Great for heavy-duty applications in and around the home and workshop."
