Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we look at the CombBind C800pro, an electric plastic comb binding system by GBC. The C800pro sets an industry standard. It’s efficient and easy to use and built heavy-duty to last through thousands of projects. You can dial in and set the side margin control stop for accuracy and consistency throughout your whole project. A hand or foot pedal runs the electric punch. And on this trial test page, you can see we have a half punch. So any of the disengageable die pins can be pulled out to remove the punch in that space. Then punch again and get exactly what you need and where you need it. On the side of the machine is a depth of margin control knob. This allows you to make thinner or thicker margins when you punch. This is useful for thinner or thicker documents. With your settings all made, let’s start with the covers. Place them into the throat of the machine and push down. The C800pro has a punch capacity of 25 sheets of 20lb paper per lift. Once you’ve punched through your whole project, assemble it together. It’s time to bind.
The 800pro has a binding capacity of 425 sheets, or two inches. A guide on the top of the machine can help you decide exactly what size plastic comb you need for your project. Simply slide it into the groove and read the chart. In comb binding, be sure the keep the plastic teeth faced up and the project faced down so it doesn’t come apart in use. Place the comb over the teeth of the comb opener, pull back the lever, and open the teeth. With the comb open wide enough, drape your project over the teeth of the comb, assuring that they all go through. Close your comb, remove your book, and you’re all done. The chip tray where all the punched holes go is right here at the bottom and easily accessed. It’s that simple with the C800pro by GBC.
