In the video I just used some scrap pieces of regular printer paper and purposefully fill it to it's max capacity of what will physically fit in it. You can see I have to put a lot of pressure on it to punch that many pieces of paper at a time, but it was doable.
My tips for punching multiple pages at a time and not ruining your paper:
-Make sure all of your paper is fully into the punch otherwise you're going to (obviously) end up with crooked punches.
-Make sure it punches all the way through. You can hear as soon as it "clicks" all the way through. If you didn't "click" then try again, as long as you didn't move your paper it will still be aligned perfectly.
-Once you are done punching, jiggle the handle like you see me do in the video. When you punch that many pages at a time, the punches like to get stuck down where your paper is. When you jiggle the handle, you can feel and hear them pop back up to their start position. If you can't get it by jiggling the handle, gently jiggle the paper and between the two motions they have popped up for me every time. If you don't do this and just pull your paper straight out, you will probably rip the paper when you're pulling it out of the punch.
Hopefully all that was clear and helpful!
The only drawback is that it can only handle 2 sheets of paper at a maximum. I tried a single piece folded in half, and even that didn't work. If you're punching things en masse, this may not work for you, but if you're just adding a few more months to your planner, it's perfect.
I punched several dozen pages today, and only once did once of the individual punchers get stuck. It was easily remedied by popping the tray off the bottom and tapping the puncher from beneath--it immediately popped back into place and released the jammed paper.
With this punch, I am geeking out over the organizational possibilities with discbound notebooks! :)
That said, Levenger’s Circa Desk Punch is the quickest and most compact way to punch sheets of paper for disc binding systems. It slips in my home office drawer and takes up no more space than a good desk ruler. I like the locking, 3-section flexibility of punching different size sheets and the adjustable edge guide. This punch is definitely light-duty, though. I could punch two sheets at a time okay, one sheet easily, and three sheets with great effort. I would consider this size punch as a backup, mobile office version of Levenger’s larger, more durable Circa punch, which will work better for everyday, multi-sheet punching. Based on those limitations, I’d rate this disc binding punch as 4-stars.

The attached picture shows the little punches and I tried to take a close up of what I think is cause the problem. I think the punches are poorly formed and not sharp enough, so they get caught up with the paper instead of punching a clean hole.
