Welcome to MyBinding video. This is the demo and assembly of the Onyx HD7700. This heavy duty tabletop punch is the top of the line punch solution for all your binding needs. Before we get to the assembly, let's watch a demonstration to see just how this machine works. First you'll need to set the paper stop according to your project's needs. Twist the dial on the left side of the machine to fine tune to get it exactly on the line that you need. With that all set, run a test paper. Slide it into the throat of the machine, all the way to the left, press down on the Palm switch or the foot pedal. A handy test at this point is to fold the paper in half, line up the corners, and see if the holes all line up. It should be centered with no half or missed holes. The solution to half holes is to remove a pin. All the pins are disengageable on the Rhin-O-Tuff die. Pull the die out, find out which pin it is that you need to remove, open the carriage, remove the pin, replace the carriage, and you're all set. Pin removal is the same for all Rhin-O-Tuff dies. It's very simple, it's very quick. Lock your die back into place and let's punch again and we'll see how we're doing. This one looks perfect. Do the fold test again and everything looks great. It's time to begin.
With your project all in order in the way you'd like it to be, process through your whole project, pack by pack of up to 55 sheets in a single punch. All Rhin-O-Tuff punches come with the patented auto-reverse feature, keeping paper jams a thing of the past. However, it can happen if just too many sheets are put in at the same time. Stored on the back side of the machine is a small handle. This goes in on the left-hand side of the machine right into the groove; turning it counter clockwise will reverse the pins on the machine, then you can remove your paper. If you need to, you can peer down just to the left side of the paper stop and you can actually watch the pins retract to make sure they are all gone so you can remove your paper. The chip tray in the front is transparent so you can keep an eye on just how many chips are building up.
That's the demonstration and how-to. And now for the assembly. Once you've removed your machine from the box, place it on a sturdy table and remove the plastic coating that protects the transparent cover of the chip tray. Inside the chip tray, you'll find all the parts of assembly that you'll need. There's oil for lubrication, two handles to lock and unlock the die, a power cord, a Palm switch, as well as the foot pedal.
The first step is to install the two handles. Remove from the bag and place them on either side. Screw them tight all the way down. These will service the lock and unlocking of the punched dies. The Onyx HD7700 comes with a foot pedal that plugs into the back of the machine and activates the punch. Also included with this machine is the Palm switch; some prefer it to the foot pedal. It plugs into the same place on the back of the machine and is activated either by finger or by palm. If you have purchased the optional Versa switch, now would be a good time to install it. Simply remove the knob from the paper stop and take the stop itself off. Then replace it with the Versa switch and screw the same knob back down. This switch plugs into the back of the machine in the same spot for the foot pedal or the Palm switch.
For the Onyx HD7700, the dies go in on the right-hand side. Place them in, slide it all the way until the black part is flush with the machine. And then lock both handles on the right and left. There you go, you're all set. That's the demo and assembly of the Onyx HD7700. You're on your way to a great many books. For more demos, reviews, and how-tos, check out MyBinding.com.

Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's take a look at the features and uniqueness of the Onyx HD7700. This is the top of the line single-punch solution for all your binding needs. Heavy duty and comes with an industry-leading three-year warranty. It's all shipped together with one box and with the Onyx HD7700, you get the Palm switch as well as a foot pedal. Some users prefer the hands-free of the foot pedal and some would rather use the hand they're holding the paper with.
One of the greatest features of all Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx punches is the interchangeable die system. Rhin-O-Tuff has created more than 20 interchangeable dies that fit in this machine alone. And they slide in and out just like you so. So whatever bind, punch pattern, or look you're going for for your business, this can be one machine that handles all of your needs. Each die is priced separately, and there are dies for plastic comb, wire loop, plastic coil, VeloBind, and three-hole loose leaf. It's an impressive looking machine and the chip tray in the front is transparent so you can see right in to see how things are filling up. The punch capacity is rated up to 55 sheets or 110 pages of 20lb paper. You can also punch up to five plastic mylar sheets, regardless of the whole pack. And as with all Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx punches, the unique auto-reverse feature is in play.
As you work, a new overload detection feature triggers an auto-reversing function to reduce jamming in the punch. Perfect and consistent punching is what you need for your business. With this machine's paper stop system, it dials in exactly what you need according to the size paper you're using and with this dial, you can even fine tune your settings so you can set it, forget it, and run your whole project without fear. If you want confidence in excellent punching, the Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx HD7700 is a great bet.

Welcome to MyBinding video. In this how-to video, we'll learn just how to change a die on an Onyx HD7700 punch. It's as simple as that. First off, the turn the power off in the back. From both sides, unlock the die by simply bringing down these two levers and remove the die by sliding it directly out until it's completely out of the carriage. Make your selection from the many interchangeable dies that Rhin-O-Tuff has created for this system and others, and with the pins facing away from you, slide it back into the machine just the way you took the other one out. Slide it all the way to the black part as flush with the side of the machine and lock it up both sides. And that's easy die-changing on the Onyx HD7700.

Rhin-O-Tuff HD7700 Review
Designed for use in high production environments, the Rhin-o-Tuff HD7700 is presented as one of the most durable binding punches on the market. Here is a report we put together of some of this machine's strengths and weaknesses.
- The major strength of the HD7700 is its remarkable punching capacity. Though Rhino doesn't specify the punching capacity for each of the different punching patterns, they have no problem stating that it will be able to punch an average of forty five pages across all patterns. We found that with Velobind we could get up to around fifty five pages, and with the coil binding types of punches it was more like forty. We consider that to be pretty impressive capacity any way you slice it.
- For the most part, you would want to look into buying this machine if you think you will need the capability to change punching patterns often, and to do it relatively quickly and easily. We really liked the system that was in place to change out the dies. All the user needs to do is release the levers, slide out the die, slide the new one in and lock it down. There are twelve standard and fourteen custom die patterns that are available for the HD7700, meaning it is without a doubt one of the most versatile machines on the market. You can even have a custom designed if the hole pattern isn't available as a stock option.
- One truly great feature is that the HD7700's punching throat is 14" wide, making the handling of legal sheets much easier than almost any other machine on the market. In other words, most of the HD7700's competition does not offer what this machine does, which is punching for legal sized documents for all hole-patterns.
- This is clearly a machine that is built to last a long time. With its all metal casing and punching units, the HD7700 should last years without needing any kind of special maintenance. Rhino does back the machine up with a one year warranty so it's obvious that they have some faith in it too.
- We also like the huge chip tray, the reverse function (for paper jams), the LED display and the choice of three activators. These features help to improve productivity and make the HD7700 a great choice for production environments.
- The vertical orientation of this machine helps the user keep the pages aligned during the punching process. We thought this was a pretty smart idea.
- The large punching capacity is a great thing, but sometimes using the HD7700 to punch a large stack of sheets caused the pages to weld together. Punching smaller lifts fixed this problem but decreased productivity. As with all modular punches, you will have to find the balance between the capacity you want and the punch quality you are willing to live with.
- This machine is huge and is obviously designed for production environments. For this reason, some office users are weary of this machine. However, most organizations that end up settling on the HD7700 are extremely happy with their decision. This is one case where function trumps aesthetics.
- Sometimes you can feel a little bit of play in the die, due perhaps to the easy change system. For accuracy and safety, it is always important to make sure that your die is completely locked in place before punching.
