This is the Akiles CoilMac ECP Plus Heavy Duty Electric Coil Punch Machine. To start off using this machine, first plug in the power and the foot petal, then turn it on. Next, adjust the side margin control for correctly center punches. Pull out the appropriate adjustable dies for whichever sized page you are punching. Set your depth margin, select larger depths for thicker books. Here is the thickest and thinnest option. Then insert up to 20 pages at a time into the machine against the side margin control. Push the foot petal and the machine will make the punch. It's always best to do a test sheet first, because if the holes do not line up, you'll have to readjust everything again. You can punch longer pages too. After the first punch, flip the paper over, adjust the correct die piece. Then line up your page properly and insert the small knob on the right into the hole that lines up. Then finish off your punch. It's best to periodically change out the bottom waste tray so it doesn't fill too full. It comes with a coil diameter selector guide to match your page amount with the correct sized coil. It also comes with Coil cutting crimpers. When crimping, have the front facing you and the coil facing down. Crimp the extra coil off with the red dot on the crimpers facing you. Rotate the book and do the same. Please note that this machine does not insert coil. You will need either another machine or to do it by hand. And instead of crimping in the air, it may be best to place the book on a flat surface and do it. Lastly, there is a reverse button on the back if there is a paper jam.
