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!!
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.Read more ›

I used this to bind recipe books for a fundraiser. It worked great initially, but all the books fell apart a few weeks later. The bindings came open and the pages fell out.Published 17 months ago by boisegirl
