Heavy, nice unit,
This review is from: Royal PL-2112 12-Inch Hot Laminating Machine (Office Product)
I am looking for another Royal PL2112 after another one I bought died. It was only used 20-25 times, and jammed with a laminator pouch in the roller. I took the unit apart and learned that the problem was with gears in the electric motor. I am assuming that this was a freak event. However, if the next one has the same problem, I will post that fact here.
The laminator is heavy and well-built. Heating time is fairly quick for a laminator and pouches do not need a carrier. I have used different sized pouches up to 9x11 with no problem. Most of the times I used it was for laminating business cards. It can laminate them continuously--several at a time swince it is so wide.
The controls are simple: on/off and release. A red light indicates that it is heating up, and a green light indicates it is ready. The only feature I wish it had is some sort of timer. The unit gets rather hot, and I am always worried that someone will forget to turn it off.
Amazon's price is great at $52.
