5.0 out of 5 stars Great V.F.M., 25 Aug 2011
This review is from: Fellowes Pulsar A4 Manual Comb Binder (Office Product)
I agonised over buying this - particularly whether to buy the electric or the manual version. My experience to date had been with a "personal" comb binder which claimed to punch up to 8 sheets but in reality only punched 2. It also wasted a lot of paper in mis-punching and, as such, I thought that an electric punch might be the way forward despite the huge cost. In the end I bought the manual Pulsar model having got a "deal" on it in Staples. It's blinking marvellous. 40 page books which took me 20mins on my "personal" binder now take 1 to 2 minutes. The vertical loading (which I was dubious about) is a huge boon - gravity helps make sure the paper is all lined up for a clean punch. The machine is very robust and the punching handle has a nice solid action through which you can feel the cascading cut. There is a little wheel to adjust the paper edge alignment (my only niggle really is that you keep having to tweak this). Oh yes - the instruction booklet is rubbish. If you are an experienced comb binder then the machine is pretty obvious and you won't need any instructions - if, however, you have never combed before then you might scratch your head a little. My 10 year old has been helping me make my booklets. She takes a little longer than me as she's not so strong to press the punching handle and therefore does the paper in 10s rather than 15s - but she loves using it as it's such a slick machine. FYI I have registered it to activate the 2 year warranty - if it stops punching cleanly it'l be back to the shop with it! My advice - feel free to go for it. This is Great Value for Money!
