Rapesco Heavy Duty Staples 923/10 [Box 4000] - 923&hellip by Rapesco

Vine gave me a sample box of these with the Rapesco desk top stapler.

These staples are symmetrically sharpened to drive true through the layers being fastened and are unlikely to cause the stack to skew. The galvanising should help to prevent them from rusting.

Being thicker and stronger and longer than the heavy duty 24/6, 24/8 and the more common light weight 26/6 office size, they work well when fastening denser/firmer/thicker stacks of paper such as high-gloss and stiff card and do not collapse before completing the operation.

Tumble-dryer Dryer Balls - Reduces your drying tim&hellip by Dryer Max
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Ours lasted about six months before both fell apart within days of each other, on a hotter drying cycle.

I've punched a small vent hole on one half of each and then repaired them with a vinyl solvent glue, but most people will not have access to this glue and it is not listed here on Az.

However, don't despair, the one-piece dog toy balls we can buy from the pet suppliers are excellent in the dryer (even when smooth) and easy to obtain, and much better than these 'Dryer Balls'. Just don't get one with a squeaker.
