Owner Review by Lauren

We use it to punch our sales proposals and presentations. Easy enough to use. We spin the coils onto the books by hand which isn't big deal since we usually just bind one or two pieces at a time.

Lewis N Review by Lewis N.

It's a cheap, excellent binding machine that has, in only one week, paid for itself by allowing me to do my own binding and not have to pay copy shop prices.

This is just ok..it does what it needs to do, and we typically do smaller jobs, so it's fine for those needs. Had to put some parts together, and am still trying to figure out what some things are used for, but for the basics, it's solid and much less expensive than Kinkos.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This video looks at the CoilMac M, a manual coil binding machine by Akiles. Solid, simple, and versatile, the CoilMac M could be an economical choice for great coil binding. Let’s watch it work.

Set the side margin control knob so that all punches will be consistent throughout your entire project. There are several disengageable die pins for a clean punch on standard sized documents. This way you have no half holes. And make your punch. The punching margin control knob provides the correct punch margin depth for each coil size. When you’re all set, begin with the covers. Spine end in first, make your punch. And continue to punch through the rest of your project, up to 17 sheets of 20lb paper per punch. When all punched, assemble your project; it’s time to bind.

The CoilMac M comes with a coil inserting table. This expedites the inserting of coils. There are two pieces to assemble; we’ll call them the fence and the teeth. This is the fence. Place the blue piece down and twist it tight with the knob. Second, place the teeth down. Remove the small nut from that twist knob, find it underneath the machine, line it in place, and screw it down tight as well. Turn the whole unit around and snap it right onto the end of the machine. Thread one end onto the teeth on the table and use the other end to begin your coil. Once you’ve got that started, you can use one or both hands to move it along much faster using the groove. Lift your project from the holder and twist to the end. Crimp both ends of your project with coil crimping pliers. And we have a how to video of this on our website if you need it. That’s it. It’s that simple to bind a great-looking book with the CoilMac 41 M. For more demos, reviews, and how to’s on this product and many more, check out MyBinding.com.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This video is made to help you understand the difference between the regular and the plus models of the CoilMac line. Akiles makes four CoilMac machines, the M, ER, ECI, and EPI, and their corresponding Plus versions. Side by side, each model looks to be very similar. They have the same features but have two major differences. The first, the shape of the punch. On the regular models, that is the M, ER, ECI, and EPI, the holes that are punched are round and they are 4mm in diameter, punching four holes for every one inch. On all four of the corresponding Plus models, the holes that are punched are oval-shaped, 4mm wide and 5mm tall, also with a 4:1 pitch. The oval holes are more popular because they tend to work better with thicker documents and lay out more naturally along an 11-inch length. Also with oval holes, the beginning threading that you must do by hand is much easier. The second major difference is the disengaging punch dies. All Plus models have fully disengageable punch pins. This allows for a clean punch with virtually any document length and without fear of half holes punched. While all of the regular models have only five disengageable pins, which allows you to work with the most standard sized of documents. Those are the two major differences. Now you're on your way to choosing the right machine. For more comparisons, demos, reviews, and how to's, check out MyBinding.com.
Transcript: Welcome to MyBinding video. This video compares the CoilMac M with the CoilMac M Plus. First, let's start with the similarities. They both have the same pitch of 4:1. They both have a 13-inch punching length. Both have an open throat design which allows you really to use any size document. Punch capacity on both machines is up to 17 sheets of 20lb paper.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This video compares the CoilMac M with the CoilMac M Plus. First, let's start with the similarities. They both have the same pitch of 4:1. They both have a 13-inch punching length. Both have an open throat design which allows you really to use any size document. Punch capacity on both machines is up to 17 sheets of 20lb paper. And the binding capacity is 25mm. They both weigh 35lbs and include an inserting table, which expedites the inserting of the coil, reducing costs and binding time. And finally, both of them come with a coil selecting tool. There are two main differences between the M and the M Plus. The first is the number of disengageable die pins. And the second is the type of hole punched. The M+ has fully disengageable die pins, meaning every single one can be removed. Therefore you can punch virtually any size sheet of paper while the M model has only five disengageable die pins to be used with the most common sizes of paper. The M model punches circular holes that are 4mm in diameter while the M+ model punches oval shaped holes. The difference is oval holes tend to work better with thicker documents. Also, oval holes are easier to begin the threading process of the coil onto the spine. So the choice will be yours according to what you need. The CoilMac M runs just under $350 and the CoilMac M+ runs just under $400. For more comparisons, demos, and how to's, check out MyBinding.com.

Akiles CoilMac M Binding Machine Review

A very popular and heavy duty spiral coil binding machine, the Akiles CoilMac M is aimed at small or medium sized businesses and organizations who want the ability to create their own booklets using ColorCoil. In the following brief review/overview, we will take a look at the various features of this machine and give you what we consider to be some of its strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths:

  1. The first thing we noticed and appreciated about this machine is that it's built like the proverbial tank. That is no surprise for an Akiles machine, but we found that the CoilMac M was of especially high quality construction. The body and all of the major components are made of metal, and we see no reason why this machine wouldn't last you for years without the need for repair or maintenance.
  2. The four to one pitch ratio that the CoilMac M features is one of the more versatile pitches on the spiral coil binding world. With this ratio, you will be able to bind a range of documents from six millimeters (about a quarter inch) to as large as fifty millimeters (two inches). You will want to get some experience under your belt, however, before you attempt to bind books that are larger than one inch. Still, it is important to keep in mind that supplies for spiral coil binding in these size ranges are easy to find, and are available in somewhere approaching sixty colors, so you can hardly find a more versatile binding system to work with.
  3. At 17 pages per lift, the CoilMac M has a pretty decent punching capacity for a medium-use machine of this type.
  4. The CoilMac M includes five disengageable dies that allow for the punching of all of the most common sized of paper, from letter, to legal, to A4 and A5.

Weaknesses:

  1. Though there is an inserting table that makes hand insertion of the coils a little bit easier, you should be aware that there is no electric coil inserter included on the CoilMac M. The binding process goes much more quickly with electric inserters, so if you think that you will need one, you'll have to take a look at either purchasing a standalone unit, or stepping up to the CoilMac ECI.
  2. Because they are so important to finishing the binding process, we were a little disappointed to find that the CoilMac M does not come with crimping pliers. You will find that cutting and crimping the end of your coils is near impossible without them, and inexperienced users especially should be made aware of this fact. All in all, it is only about a thirty dollar value that is missing from the machine, but make sure that you order a pair of these pliers when you order the CoilMac M.
  3. Though, as we mentioned above, the CoilMac M has some disengageable dies that will get you through the vast majority of jobs, the fact that they are not all disengageable will make it unlikely that you will be able to effectively process documents that are of irregular or custom size. For most users, this won't be a problem. We just thought you should know.
Questions & Answers
Q:
Do you think the Akiles CoilMac M Manual Coil Binding Machine will consistently be able to punch 10 mil and 5 mil laminated paper without getting dull? Thank you!
Asked by Kristine D 1 months ago
A:
The CoilMac will be able to punch through those materials. However you will only be able to punch one or maybe two at a time. Also, any plastic covers or laminated materials will always dull punching pins a lot faster than a paper material. This does not mean they will dull in only a month or two, but you will get less than if all you were punching was paper.

Q:
Will this work with all types of coils?
Asked by S Smith 2 months ago
A:
Yes. We carry all of the coil you will ever need for your Coilmac. Just go to the coil section of the site and choose your options. There are more than forty-five different colors and a ton of sizes to choose from. If you aren't sure what color to order we also offer a sample pack that shows an actual sample of each color that we carry.
