It includes a convenient push button punching control and an integrated storage tray / spine measuring device.
  • This machine is capable of punching up to twenty sheets of 20lb paper per lift. That is a respectable punching capacity for an electric comb binding punch. The twenty sheet punching capacity combined with the convenient electric punching mechanism makes this machine an excellent value.
  • The comb opener on this machine is capable of binding virtually any size of plastic comb available on the market. It can be used with combs as small as 1/4" and as thick as 2". It can open smaller 3/16" plastic combs. However, this machine is not recommended for use with 3/16" combs since it does not have an adjustable depth of punch margin control.
