The Tamerica 242 DURA BIND Comb Binding Machine has an exceptionally strong manual punch and the capacity to bind up to 250 2” thick books per hour. It’s also one of the best manual, legal-sized puncher and comb binders out there.
How is it Used?
This combo puncher and comb binder is all about making the most out of manual power. Yes, you’ll need to put some muscle into it, but the machine does most of the work for you. Its heavy-duty punching mechanism can punch up to 5,000 sheets an hour (15-20 sheets at a time).
Simply set the depth-of-punch margin control, insert your document (up to legal sized) and punch. When you’re ready, insert the plastic comb, open it using the lever and feed your document on to the comb.
Because it’s an all-manual machine, the Tamerica TCC242 DURA BIND Comb Binding Machine is best suited to low-to-medium volume users doing shorter or mid-sized binding runs. That said, it’s sturdy, well-built (all-metal construction) and built to last, so it’s a still a good, cost-effective choice.
And How Much Does it Cost?
