binding machine

I was wondering if anyone owns a binding machine and if it is a worthwhile purchase. We have one in our school but it only uses big "combs" and I am looking to make small spiral books (for the kids' published stories, etc.).

about the size of a big 3 hole punch. I can do the little books and journals very easily.

I can't tell you exactly how much it would cost as I found this one in a thrift store for $2.

An old teacher partner did buy the full-sized electric one just for herself but she laminated and bound everything.

My school has this one https://www.amazon.com/TruBind-Coil-...2607470&sr=8-4 because I asked for it. If they hadn't purchased it, I would have bought this one for myself (it was only $99 when I looked at it originally years ago) https://www.amazon.com/TruBind-Coil-...2607470&sr=8-4 You don't really need the electric spiral part.

It's as indispensable as a laminator, in my opinion. But I suppose if you're only doing small kids' work projects, the smaller version whatever mentioned is probably better.

By big do you mean full length coils? I’ve just cut them down to the size I want. The “teeth” of the binder still open and close, but there is no plastic comb to put the pages on in those spots, if you know what I mean.

It is just like this:

Mine is a Docubind Personal Binding System--I bought it used. It is perfect for classroom use. It is simple, not hard to use and can use the combs the school provides for their big machine.

It can do up to legal size or be cut down to smaller sizes as a PP suggested. It is handy, easy to transport and I own it so it can go with me.
