How To Reverse A Paper Jam on Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx HD7700?
Here is an audio transcript of this video:
Welcome to MyBinding's How-To videos. In this edition, we learn how to reverse a paper jam manually on a Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx HD7700 punch. Built into every Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx punch is the patented auto-reverse feature, which dramatically reduces the amount of jams. But sometimes a paper jam can happen and you have to manually reverse it. Here's how. Turn the machine off in the back and remove this little cover here on the left-hand side and set this little cap aside. On the back of the machine is the auto-reverse manual handle; remove it from the clip and place it into the hole. Twist it around until you find the grooves and it snaps all the way into place. And then, with a counter-clockwise motion, you can reverse the pins in the punch. You can either use your sense of feel and remove small packets of paper as you turn the handle. Or you can do it visually by looking just to the left of the paper stop and watching the pins retract. When they retract all the way, you're set to go, remove your project. Then, remove the handle, replace the cap, put the handle back on the back of the machine, turn it back on, and you're set to continue with your project. And that's how to manually reverse a paper jam on the Onyx HD7700. For more demos, reviews, and how-tos, check out MyBinding.com.
< Over the years, a number of customers have asked me whether they can use twin loop wire with their plastic comb binding machine. These customers often don’t want to have to buy a brand new machine but like the look and feel of twin loop wire binding. However, the answer to their question isn’t as simple as it seems. You see, they actually do make twin loop wire that is designed to work with the plastic comb binding hole pattern. With that said, if you want to use these wires you are going to need a way to close the wires. What is Spiral-O Wire?Let me explain a little bit more…There is a product that we carry called Spiral-O Wire. This wire has 19 loops and is designed to work with the hole pattern from a plastic comb binding machine. Spiral-O Wire is sometimes called Wire Combs or Ibico Wire and was originally designed for use with some of the older Ibico binding machines. A number of the older Ibico plastic comb binding machines also included a twin loop wire closer on the front of them to allow users to use both plastic combs and wire. This 19 loop wire was designed for this purpose.What Equipment is Needed? As the Ibico brand has been phased out by GBC and all of the older Ibico plastic binding machines have been replaced with new models, they no longer have the twin loop wire closer on the front of them. This presents a problem in trying to use these spiral-o wires since you can’t use the wires without a way to close them.One of the only options left is to purchase a Twin Loop wire closer. However, since twin loop wire closers are not incredibly cheap this option usually only appeals to users who have larger electric plastic comb binding machines. Otherwise, it is often advisable to simply buy a low end 3:1 pitch twin loop wire binding machine (the supplies are cheaper). This being said, if you have one of the older Ibico binding machines that has a wire closer included you are in luck. The Spiral-O binding supplies that we carry will work perfectly with your machine and you will be able to use both plastic combs and wire depending on your needs. These Spiral-O binding supplies are available in Black, Silver, White, Blue and Red and in sizes up to 1″ in diameter.If you aren’t sure what type of wire binding supplies that you need to work with your machine simply give us a call. Our trained sales representatives will be glad to help you find the correct supplies for use with your machine.(Read More)
