Report maker Review by Brian R. Luedke

I have owned the wire binding machine for 1 month now and it has worked perfectly. It comes with a cover to protect the teeth of the binder. My old binding machine had plastic teeth and they broke from use and cleaning. This one has a very nice cover to protect the mechanical pieces inside.

I like this machine a lot Review by iReadalot

I like this machine so much, it binds perfectly, and it is somewhat portable. The wire closer is better than my large tabletop machine; the only thing it is lacking is disengage-able punch dies.

Great Machine Review by Walker

We needed an electric wire binding machine but didn't want to spend a thousand dollars. This machine was relatively inexpensive. The electric punch is easy to use by just pressing the button. The wire closer is a bit tricky to get the hang of but works pretty well once you figure it out. I would definitely recommend this machine if you need an electric machine for a decent price.

Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's take a look at the Galaxy E Wire, a wire binding system by Fellowes with an electronic punch.Step-by-step let's make a book and see just how this machine works.

With your materials ready, open the lid, turn it on with the power switch on the back, you're ready to go. The throat opening is just at the back, towards the lid. Starting with the covers, place the punch side down into the throat and adjust the side margin control knob. Set that just where you want it so all punches are consistent throughout your project. And the blue button is the punch. Continue on punching through the rest of the pages in your book.

Once you've punched through all your pages, assemble your book in order. It's now time to bind them with the wire. The Galaxy E has a built-in tray to not only hold wire binds for you but also help you measure your project to get the right size bind for your book. Once you have the right size spine, place it over the fence in the middle of the machine. This will hold it with the teeth facing up so you can thread your project over it. There's a little trick in wire binding to hide your final seam. If you take the back cover and flip it around to face the front cover, then your seam in the end will be between the back page and the back cover. It does take some getting used to but learn how to thread all the teeth through your project in one fell swoop. Lift your project with the loose spine up off the fence and make sure you have the ?C" shape facing down into the closer. Before you close the spine, make sure that you've adjusted the stop mark so you don't over-close. It serves as sort of a break for the closer clamp. Close it down all the way, you can double check by the grid that's there. And that's it, you're done. Remove your project from the closer, bring the back cover around to the front again. Note the seam is hidden in the back. You've got a great looking book. You can dispose of all the punched chads from the chip tray below. And that's it, that's the Galaxy E Wire by Fellowes.

Fellowes Galaxy E-Wire Binding Machine Review

Of all the binding methods currently available, twin-loop wire binding is one of the most sophisticated-looking ones. It's great for professional documents such as architectural plans, sales reports, and more. To do this type of document finishing, you need a wire binding system and a terrific new one is the Fellowes Galaxy e-Wire. This is a product that's electric and has been designed for frequent use in busy offices that need a wire binding machine for those important projects. Here's an in-depth look at this device's strengths and weaknesses so you can decide if this is the right one for your office.

The strengths:

  • The Galaxy has a decent punching capacity of 20 sheets of 20 lb. per lift. It can bind documents that contain up to 130 pages and accepts wire spines up to 9/16" thick.
  • This machine had a vertical loading system that ensures your paper will be punched properly. There's also an edge guide adjustment that automatically centers your work so it will come through the process looking great.
  • The Galaxy has a spine selector that can help you determine which size spine you need for your document. This not only takes a lot of the guesswork out of the bookbinding process, it helps ensure your book will be bound correctly the first time.
  • This machine has disengageable dies so you can get the exact punching pattern you need for your document.
  • You can store wire spines, covers, and even documents in this machine's very roomy storage drawer.
  • Paper scraps are stored in a chip tray that has a burst-out feature that helps reduce the risk of a jam. You can easily access the tray from the front of the machine, making it quick and easy to dispose of the scraps.
  • Fellowes has included a binding starter pack that contains everything you need to start using your Galaxy. This eliminates the need to head to the store and pick up covers and wire spines.
  • Finally, the Galaxy comes with a terrific two-year warranty that has you covered in case you encounter any problems with it.

The weaknesses:

  • Some users may find that this machine lacks the binding capacity they need. After all, 130 pages isn't very much and if you need to bind longer documents, you'll need an additional device.
  • The lever is on the left-hand side of the unit, so right-handed users might find using the Galaxy to be a bit challenging.
  • This device doesn't have any removable components, so only one person can use it at a time. This can increase the amount of time it takes to produce your books.

Overall, the Fellowes Galaxy e-Wire is a great choice for those important documents that contain 130 pages or less. While the binding capacity isn't terrific, the machine will do a great job of putting together your shorter documents. It's also great that it comes with such a generous warranty and supplies so you can get started as soon as the device is out of the box. If you need a wire binding machine, the Galaxy is definitely one worth your consideration.

Questions & Answers
Q:
Once a year, I have a book that is over 9/16 of an inch. I am unable to locate spines big enough to do this book, so I have been taking it to a professional binder. Is there a way I can do this with my machine?
Asked by Jorge
A:
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the 3:1 pitch wire binding machines do not have spines available larger than 9/16. To accomplish this you would need a machine to punch 2:1 pitch (21 holes) You can find those here. You can find the supplies, here.

Answered by MyBinding 9 months ago
Q:
Can this machine do both 3:1 pitch and 2:1? Or just 3:1?
Asked by Jackie
A:
Thank you for your question. The Fellowes Galaxy E-Wire only punches the 3:1 hole pattern, it is not able to punch 2:1.

Q:
What punched dimension can this equipment go up to? Can it punch and wire-o 9 x 12 sheets? Punching on the 12" dimension?
Asked by Angela Conklin
A:
Thank you for your question. The Fellowes Galaxy E-Wire is designed to punch up to A4 side paper which has a 11.7" length. It does not have a "open throat" design so unfortunately it would not work with a 12" wide document.

Asked by Charlene
A:
Yes, this machine uses the 3:1 Pitch Twin Loop Wire.

We just bought this machine for our office and I was wondering is there a way to unbind a document. Thanks!
