This is just what I needed. Until ordering this almost-industrial paper punch, I'd been punching sheets of paper 4-5 at a time which takes ages. This heavy-duty workhorse-punch has just performed what would normally waste a tedious 3 hours in a productive 20 minutes without a single jam or imperfect punch. It's given me lots of inspiration for improving my general organisation and I've now started punching full brochures and booklets which can tidily filed away and easily retrieved. Better still - it effortlessly punches through 3mm leather (and other materials) so will also be very useful for my craftwork.
This is no lightweight item but a sturdy, robust aluminium-bodied punch with a substantial lever making very easy work of punching up to 65 (85gsm) sheets of loose paperwork, brochures, booklets, leather, cardboard and a range of other materials. The punch is built to last and this is reinforced by the impressive 15 year guarantee demonstrating Rapesco's confidence in the product, which I share.
It's well-designed too. Using the removable guide-strip, holes can be punched precisely in a range of paper sizes - something I rarely achieve with my old mini-punch which struggles with more than 4-5 sheets and then I have the monotonous tasking of lining them all up and trimming a few tops and bottoms to hide the inevitable aligning errors. A slider at the top of the punch lever holds it in a closed position for storage and paper clippings are collected in the easily-opened base. No instructions are supplied but it's fairly obvious how it all works, but some users might miss the oil etching on the base advising periodic lubrication of the punch mechanism.
I think this is the best punch available for heavy-duty work in a busy office or home-office and it's one I can heartily recommend to make light work of all stationery and craftwork punching requirements.
