Dear Elektor78,
I have a (very long) experience with binding machines mainly from GBC.

IMHO I can state the following:

0) Is it for personal or professional use?

1) The general idea (that kind of binding) is quite good and gives you robust and handy booklet to use.

2) The cheap machines don't worth their price. The feeling you get in their use is "rough" and is quite impossible - despite the care you put in - to get a decent work done.

3) The expensive machines (although good) are really expensive (if you have to pay yourself :-)). For professional use are the *only* choice (expecially if it is not you who pay for them)

4) A different choice and a low bid (for personal use - and payment) would be a "two ring binder" AKA "dox" and a two holes punch which costs you few euro.

Always remeber the binding machine golden rule: never punch more than the *half* the sheet puch capacity stated by the manufacturer (from Murphy's Law: Manufacturer's specifications of performance should be multiplied by a factor of 0.5)

Regards

Thanks for the answer and advices !

I have seen the new production of some factory and all cheap machines are built in "orient",
often the precision of cut is very inaccurate = "don't worth their price"
Other new production are built in plastic matter.
Then now exist also a lot of "orient" clones of the well-known Ibico kombo/GBC C250
of whose the quality itself can easily to imagine.

if I am lucky I I will find something on ebay

Thanks again diy_audio_fo !

bye

I'd suggest scanning 'em and putting them on the computer. Flatbed scanners are nearly free (from thrift stores) these days. That also makes it easy to share information with other people.

Print out copies for temporary use or to put in 3-ring binders with project docs.
