premium oval hole spiral coil crimping pliers (part number 7300551) are
some of the highest quality crimping pliers available on the market.
These special pliers were designed for users who own a spiral
coil binding machine or modular punch that uses oval holes. With an
oval hole pattern it is necessary for the ends of the spiral coil to be
crimped with a longer throw so that the coil doesn't spin off the book
when the pages are turned.
These pliers cut and crimp the end of the coil in a single motion and are an important part of any binding system.
Strengths / Features:
For users who own a coil
binding system that produces oval holes, these premium coil crimping
pliers are a necessity. Standard coil crimping pliers will not
consistently produce a long enough throw to prevent the coil from
working their way off the edge of coil bound documents.
Standard coil crimpers are find for 4:1 and 5:1 pitch round
hole coil binding. However, these coil crimpers are a great choice for
users who are binding documents with other pitches of spiral coil.
Users who bind documents using 3:1 pitch spiral coil, use 3:1 pitch
coil with a proclick hole patter or use 2.5:1 pitch coil with a 2:1
pitch binding machine will want to use these pliers to crimp the ends
of their documents.
The plastic coated handles of these crimping pliers are
designed to make them easy to hold and easy to use. However, it is
important to remember to keep the red dot on these crimpers facing the
ceiling and the spine of the book facing towards you.
These coil crimping pliers can also be used with standard 4:1
or 5:1 pitch coil without looking odd or awkward. This will prevent
users from having to own two pairs of coil binding pliers.
Weaknesses / Limitations:
These premium coil
crimpers cost about twenty dollars more than a standard pair of coil
crimping pliers. Although this isn't a huge amount of money, it is
enough to make some users consider whether they are worth the upgrade.
In some cases they are and in others they are not.
Although these are premium crimping pliers, they really aren't
any easier to use than standard coil crimping pliers. The only thing
that makes them premium is the fact that they have a longer throw for
oval hole or odd pitch binding.
High volume users sometimes complain that the task of crimping
the ends of spiral coil binding spines is tedious and time consuming.
These crimping pliers don't help with that problem. Organizations that
bind large numbers of books may want to consider an electric coil
crimper such as the Marlon crimper.
For users that need to bind
spiral coil documents using an oval hole pattern, 3:1 pitch hole
pattern or 0.400 pitch pattern these coil crimpers are definite must.
They work with both standard and specialty coil types making
them a versatile tool and a decent investment. However, it is important
to remember that these pliers aren't easier to use and don't save time
over standard coil crimpers.
Therefore, users who don't ever plan on binding documents with
specialty coil may find that standard coil crimping pliers are adequate
for their needs.
