The machines works very well, it is quite solid.

I've bound several books for our homeschool, and next I am going to make them a book of centuries and nature journals!

This machine says that it will punch up to 10 pieces of 20# paper. The most I could punch at one time was 8, and that was difficult. It works best with 1 to 3 pices of paper. If you have never used this type of a binding machine, be prepared to spend some time on each job. First you have to carefully stack the papers so the left edges are all even. Then you have to punch holes in 1 to 3 pieces of paper at a time. When this is done, then you have to use the machine to open the plastic comb and carefully place each piece of paper on all of the open fingers. I bought this machine for home use to help bind various sets of papers such as tax returns. The C75 worked well in peforming this function, but extra time was needed to punch the required holes. If there were any creases or staples in the paper, they had to be cleaned up so they would fit in the small opening for the punch to work. I paid $72.75 for my machine in March of 09 and now it sells for about $10 less. At this price it is a good piece of equipment if is durable enough to last a while. If you are doing lots of comb binding, this machine is probably too slow and light weight.

The machines works very well, it is quite solid. I have made several booklets with this, collecting/binding collections of papers that would otherwise sit in a file folder in a file cabinet. For that alone, I think this machine is worth it!!

The punch has a handy drawer which collects the "hole punches", making it easy to empty later. Also, there's a second drawer in which you can keep a variety of plastic combs/spines for binding --- this makes it much easier than going back to the supply closet to get a 1/2" or 3/4" or 1" comb.

I've taken a pile of monthly forms and spiral bound them, then they're all in one place --- I just flip the page & I'm onto the next month. I teach art to kids. Took the best ideas for sculpture & spiral bound those. Now, when I need a sculpture idea, I just pull the booklet off the shelf. Ditto for booklets on painting, collage, figure drawing, etc. Sometimes I print off PDF booklets from the internet & bind them. Even amassed all my dieting tips into one handy booklet to recharge my motivation when I need to drop a few pounds. They are handy to slip in my tote bag to read in the doctor's office, on a trip, etc.

I find that having these little booklets on hand, I use/access the material much more. In that past, the articles simply accumulated in file folders, buried in a file drawer. This spiral booklet method is much more fun.

The only difficulty I've found is that it is hard for me to line up the plastic spine with the myriad of holes in the edge of the paper --- I'll get 80% "hooked" on the spine, but 20% don't want to go on. This is not a criticism of this machine, however, as I think it would be a problem with any spiral binding machine.

Overall, I'm having a lot of fun with my purchase!!

I am a teacher and used the binding machine to make booklets for the classroom. I had laminated pages to bind. To be on the safe side I did only 3 laminated pages at a time. Make sure to practice, especially if you are not using standard paper sizes so that the holes line up centered from the top and bottom.

I just finished binding 7 calendars for my kids and grand kids. It took 3 passes to do the 13 pages. (45 pound outer and 24 pound inner pages.) For 25 bucks it sure was worth it not having to burn the gas to go to Office Depot to get it done. Aligning and punching is easy. Attaching the binder is a little slow, but us retired people have plenty of time.

5 stars all on this unit. Yes, you can only punch about 5 sheets at a time, as others mentioned - this is a personal binder, meaning low volume, creating the occasional bound document. If you want to work quicker, you'll need to spend big bucks. For $43 (at time of my purchase) you can't beat the ease and convenience of self-binding. To bind, simply punch your paper, then place the comb on the teeth of the binder, line up the little hook things, gently pull the handle down to open the comb, position your paper, release the handle and you're done. Unit is small and light making it easy to transport. The well designed waste tray is easy to empty. The binder in general is very easy to keep clean and store. Even if you only use it occasionally, for under $50 you can't go wrong.

This machine has a problem with getting the paper lined up straight before punching. To be fair, I am using it to punch and bind 80-lb double-sided matte photo paper that I am making calendars out of. It's supposed to handle 10 sheets of 20-lb paper (which is 200-lb in thickness) so it shouldn't be a problem. However, the paper keeps sticking when I try to get it in place for punching and the holes end up getting punched out of alignment. Of course, that means I have to re-print the double-sided page and start over. Binding with the combs is easy, but I would not recommend this machine to anyone trying to punch thick paper or more than 3-4 sheets of regular paper at a time.

I'm a homeschool mom. We use mostly living books and mostly old public domain books for our homeschool. This means they are free to download and print. My problem was binding. I had been wanting a binding machine for a couple of years but price held me back. I found this machine on sale for under $25 elsewhere (it's not on sale any longer)and I jumped on it, now I wish I'd have bought one 2 years ago!

This is a sturdy machine. I find it can only punch 3-5 pages at once, easily-not the 10 it claims (but I think that is to be expected from most anything). It's easy to use, requires no set up. It even has suction cups on the bottom to keep it in place when in use. It's much sturdier than I expected for a machine in this price range. Solid construction, well designed, etc I think it will last us for quote some time.

I use it to bind mostly half books. This machine is *NOT* designed to bind half books, but if you're willing to take a little time, you can easily set it up and do half books as well.

I simply use a couple of half sheets of paper to find the exact spot where I needed to line up my paper, then used a pen to mark that spot on the base of the machine. Now I bind 1/2 books with no problems at all! As long as I line the papers up well before inserting into the machine to be punched and only punch 3-5 sheets at a time, I've yet to mess up a book.

After punching the holes you insert the comb on the machine and it locks to hold it open. It's super easy to add much larger sections of books to the comb than you can punch holes in. My 5 year old can almost bind a book by himself with this machine after watching/helping me bind 2 books, it's that easy to use.

This machine has already paid for itself in the 2 weeks I've had it.
