Its weight and the desk space it occupies may be a reason against it so far as home use is concerned. However, whether at home or in a commercial office, if you frequently have holes to punch in ten or more sheets of paper at once, you will be glad to have it.
It comfortably takes (and punches through) 40 sheets of 80gsm paper, or 35 sheets of 90gsm paper.
But what about just one or two sheets? That’s fine too, except that the effective ‘backstop’ if you push the paper as far in as it will go is further back than it is for a wodge of 35 or 40 sheets. The result is that, unless you take great care – or create a backstop with a couple of dobs of White Tack, Blu Tack, or similar – some sheets will have their holes punched further in from the left hand margin than others. I consider that a design fault and it is the reason I am only giving it four stars, not five.
That being said, my long-standing home machine (an ancient Rexel with a capacity of ten 80gsm sheets) has the same problem and I never noticed before comparing it with this one. It’s more noticeable with the Rapesco’s 40 sheet ‘mouth’.
The ‘confetti’ tray is of a good depth, so holds a lot of punched holes before it has to be emptied. Made of polythene, it is unlikely to be as durable as the main body of the machine, but if not ill-treated or exposed to heat it will probably outlast any reasonable expectation – i.e. upwards on at least ten years. (According to the box, the whole item has a 15 year warranty!)
The machine is provided with a ‘paper guide’ with various markings – A4, B5, A5, B6, 888 – to help with punching the holes where they should be relative to the top and bottom edges of the paper.Read more ›
It has a confetti tray that is secure, and will “not uncouple”. By having a secure confetti tray, it avoids the resulting release of paper waste, which has happened with a cheaper model. However, it is easy to empty the confetti tray, when needed. With some adjustable paper, guides on hole-punch units can be troublesome. As they can move out of the needed alignment – that said, with the Rapesco 835 2-Hole Hole Punch has an adjustable calibrated paper guide, which seems to work OK. On using the unit, it depresses well with just a small amount of applied pressure. It also copes well with punching through 40 sheets of 80gsm paper, in relatively effortless ease.
To sum up, the Rapesco 835 2Hole Punch is designed with the user in mind and is, therefore, comfortable to hold and use.
At present, the device seems robust and well made - only prolonged use, over time will be the true test of its durability, however, at present the hole-punch performs well, and is hence recommended.
It can be locked shut for storage, but in reality I find it easier to have out on the desk. There's also a useful pull out page measure for paper size alignment from B6 to A4.
The plastic cover underneath opens easily for removal of the punched bits - the confetti!
|Length: 1:56 Mins|
When the hole punch arrives, the first thing you notice about it is its weight and study ‘heavy duty’ build. This is a solid metal hole punch which is designed to last for many, many years’ worth of use.
The key features on the hole punch are as follows:
HANDLE LOCK-DOWN SWITCH:
On the very front of handle you’ll notice that there’s a small sliding switch. This allows you to push the handle down and then lock it into place for easy storage.
SLIDING PAPER GUIDE:
On the bottom left-hand-side of the hole punch there’s a small plastic paper measuring guide that can be pulled out so that you can measure perfectly where the holes need to be on a number of standard-sized sheets of paper (A4, B5, A5, B6 and 888 – which is to assist with punching four holes into A4 paper).
The paper guide clicks out at all of the different sizes apart from A4 (the most commonly used) which you have to line-up yourself (i.e. it doesn’t ‘click’ into place for this particular size).
FLIP-DOWN CONFETTI TRAY:
This is quite a nice little feature. Rather than the usual ‘slide tray’ or ‘bottom compartment opening’ style of confetti tray, this model has a smaller flip-down opening which means it’s easier to empty out the confetti bits without making a mess.
All in all I’m very pleased with the hole punch. It’s heavy duty and clearly designed to last for many years of regular use. The only slight negative point is that the Paper Guide doesn’t ‘click’ into place on the A4 setting like it does with all the other settings. But this is just one very small niggle.
