This is the Fastbind C500 Heavy-Duty Manual Creaser.

To begin, we're going to set the second guide out of the way. Next, adjust your guide to the appropriate distance. Align it to the inside of the guide. I'm using 8.5" paper, so I'll set my guide to that.

Next take your softcover with the front to the right. Flip the cover over, insert it into the creaser, and align it to the guide on the right. Make your crease. To position the page to the right guide, slide it under the left guide as demonstrated here.

Now flip the cover over and with the front still to the right, re-insert the cover, this time aligning it to the left guide. Make the crease, and it's ready to be bound in a Fastbind machine.

Using this method creates a binding edge crease and an inside hinge crease, so your glued cover opens easily.

Now, you can also use the second guide for either a back spine crease (though Fastbind perfect binding machines do not need this), or use it to create a tri-fold project.
