Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we're looking at the Fellowes Quasar 500 plastic comb binding machine. Designed for the small or medium size office, the Fellowes Quasar 500 is a great comb binding machine. Let's watch it in action step by step. After practicing some scrap paper, begin with the covers. use the purple side margin control knob to adjust the margin to make sure everything is lined up consistently for your whole project. Slide your materials into the back slot and bring the lever down. Use both hands for consistent cutting. Continue punching through the rest of your project in small batches, 20 sheets or less of 20lb paper; the fewer the sheets, the easier the punch. When everything is punched, assemble your project in order. It's time to bind your book. There is a compartment on the right side of the Quasar 500 that you can store some combs but also has a very handy measuring tool to determine which comb is the right size for your project. Simply slide your whole project into the slots to determine which round is the best. It's now time to place the comb on the teeth of the machine. In comb binding, always keep your project faced down and the comb faced up. That way it doesn't come apart in use. The trickiest part of comb binding is placing your project over the teeth of the comb. With some practice, you'll become quite proficient. When all lined up, use the lever to close the teeth of the comb and you're all set. With the Quasar 500, you can bind books with rounds that are up to 1 and 1/8 inch in diameter and you can use plastic oval combs as well up to 2 inches. For easy and convenient disposal, chips fall into a chip tray just below the machine. Comb binding is really that easy with the Quasar 500 by Fellowes.

What size combs would you recommend for this Quasar + machine for jobs of 30 pages and also 70 pages? Thank you so much!
Asked by Annabeth G.
For 30 Sheets of 20 lb paper, you can use 5/16" comb, and for 70 Sheets, 1/2" comb. Please refer to our Sizing guide for all of the sizes https://www.mybinding.com/sizing-guides.

I am looking to bind a standard page on the top versus the side. So, would need it to punch 8.5 inches. Is that something this machine can do? Well, I know it can but will it line up correctly?
Asked by Calli
Thank you for your question. While the Fellowes Quasar+ Plastic Comb Binding Machine would be able to punch covers narrower that 11" wide, you may end up with half punches on the edge of the sheet. You would need a machine that has dies that can disengage which this machine does not have. You can find one example of a machine with that feature here .

I see in the specifications for this unit that it does not feature an adjustable margin depth control. Is that function really a necessity?
Asked by Amber
Although not an essential feature it means that the distance between the holes punched and the edge of the paper is going to be fixed. For binding documents with extremely small combs such as 3/16" this can cause issues with pages not turning properly (we don't suggest using 3/16" combs without a margin depth adjustment) and for binding extremely large books the bind isn't going to be quite as strong as it would be if you were to move the holes in from the edge a little bit further. These aren't big issues for most companies but it is something to keep in mind if you are binding either really large or really small documents.
