Braun Oral-B PRO 6000 CrossAction 6-Mode Rechargea&hellip by Oral-B
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've used a 5000 series Braun for a couple of years, and have became accustomed to its funny ways, so when Vine offered me this PRO 6000 I thought it would be an improvement (newer, bigger number, more bucks). And the attraction of the Bluetooth link to the tablet seemed interesting.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This stapler is an outstanding piece of office equipment, if perhaps just a little bit too big. It is substantial, very well made, and requires only a little effort to staple a great thickness of paper or card. It can also accommodate a variety of different strength and length staples on the standard pitch without jamming.

It is not 'power assisted', it merely has much better leverage than a more conventional old fashioned office stapler, and therefore requires a bigger footprint on the desk. It has a rubber insert underneath at the front to stop it sliding when the pressure is applied.

Loading is trivially… Read more
