MBM 25 Single Spindle Paper Drill Review
If you need to punch holes in a lot of paper quickly, an ordinary hole punch just isn't going to cut it. You need something like the MBM 25 Single Spindle Paper Drill. Check out its strengths and weaknesses as listed below.
The MBM 25 can drill through up to 2 inches of paper at once. This is a terrific drilling capacity and it will allow you to put holes in almost an entire ream of paper in a matter of seconds. Using a machine such as this is far easier than using a traditional hole punch that's for sure.
This machine is compatible with sheets that are up to 14.75 inches long. That means you'll be able to process letter- and legal-sized paper with ease.
The MBM 25 comes with a 1/4" drill bit. This size of bit is the most commonly used. You can also use 5/32", 13/64", and 7/32" bits with this device if you need holes of varying sizes.
This machine is preprogrammed with 5 drilling patterns. To select the pattern you want, all you need to do is turn a dial on the side of the machine.
In order to make the MBM 25 as user-friendly as possible, the manufacturer has outfitted the device with a quick release clamp and self-centering side guides. These features will keep your sheets in place and well-aligned so you can get the results you need.
This device is actually pretty compact considering most drills are enormous items. The MBM 25's approximate dimensions are 14" (depth) x 19" (width) x 19" (height). It's possible to set this machine on a counter or tabletop if you have sufficient space. Plus, it only weighs 39 pounds so transporting it won't be an issue.
This product is backed by a one-year warranty.
This is a single spindle drill, so if might not be the best choice if you need to put more than one hole in a sheet of paper. If you do choose to produce multiple holes, you'll need to do them one at a time which can be very time-consuming.
The MBM 25 is operated via a handle on the top of the device. This might not be a good thing if you prefer to work with a foot petal instead.
The MBM 25 is a pretty good paper drill, especially if you're specifically looking for a device that can only drill one hole at a time. (If not, you should select a machine with more spindles.) This device has a good drilling capacity and you can use the most common sizes of paper with it. It's nice that you can use different drill bits with this machine and that there are 5 preset patterns. The compact size is a major plus as well. While it would be nice if this machine had more than one spindle, the MBM 25 would be a good choice if you need a small, basic drill.
