Nice product - shame about the misrepresentation of capacity
on 2 March 2012
Purchased this as I regularly make up training packs of 135 pages - so thought this would be ideal as it claims to punch 65 sheets at a time. It doesn't. 65x80gm sheets of paper barely even fit in the punching gap, and once in, the punch cannot be brought down. The maximum that this punch deals with comfortably is 40 sheets of 80 gm paper.
It's not a deal breaker; but it is the reason I have given it three stars - if they were honest about it's capacity, it would have achieved four stars.
The item itself is well made and solid. The paper guide is quite substantial and stays firmly in place when adjusted to the sizes I was using (A5 and A4).
I had looked at several other high capacity hole punches in a well known stationers yesterday before ordering this one, and feel that it is definitely of a better standard, and feels like it will last a good while.
All in all, I feel it is a good purchase, and have used it to successfully punch approximately 2000 sheets so far (it only arrived this morning -thanks to Amazon's premium delivery service).
