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!!
The unit has suction cups on the bottom (which I didn't expect) and they keep it from tilting up or sliding around when you apply downward force on the handle. It's solidly made, and should last quite awhile with reasonable treatment. The binding section is simple and mechanical, and doesn't work as well as I'd hoped, but I don't think any other machine would do better. The problem is that the tight curl on the plastic spines make it hard to get them through the entire stack of paper.
BTW: it doesn't "cut and bind" all in one operation. The cutting is done on the flat surface (like a large 3-hole punch), and the binding is done on the top where you see those metal spikes sticking up in the picture. It's not a particularly fast operation that way, but, for the price, I think it's a good deal.

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 20 months ago by boisegirl

The machine works fine, but I assumed that the handle folds away when you're done. - Well it doesn't. So then storing it became an issue. Read morePublished on February 25, 2014 by Pat

We have one at church, so I decided to purchase. You have to be very careful when loading the pages or else the holes will be lopsided and/or too close to the edge. Read morePublished on December 21, 2013 by TheCrozetParaclete
