Preferably, a motor (not shown) rotates sprocket gear 16. As sprocket gear 16 rotates, it moves chain 14 to

position staple head 12 in the desired location, In this way, staple head 12 may be positioned in any desired location adjacent the edge of the stack of sheets. In this way, a plurality of staples may be driven through the stack of sheets along the marginal edge.
