The "monster" doesn't breathe fire nor swallow victims in a single bite but by taking many bites of a few pages it provides a means of making frequently flopping pages of music books lie flat and turn easily. Most of my music is in no longer published versions and have generations of frequent use. By removing staples and slowly band sawing the bound edges, we have been able to salvage and extend the usable life for the next generation. The monster handles only 1/4 coils and falls short for for most music book thickness. Closing larger coils by hand is a painstaking process with varying results. It still beats a 3 or 4 hole step punching mechanism. For small quantities it is well worth the small investment and the extra effort to assemble 9/16" coils.

Unfortunately, the ProClick spines require slightly larger holes than this machine will punch. The holes are spaced the same, but the tighter holes make the pages difficult to turn when used with ProClick spines.
This binding machine is pretty good, but would be much better if it could crimp different sized spines.

This is great for little projects. If you are looking for a 3:1 punch and aren't concerned about only punching a few sheets at a time, this binder will work great.
The crimping tool will only work with 1/4" (6mm) wire loops. It will not crimp other sizes. If you need to bind larger projects, you will need to use binding spines that do not need to be crimped... like a ProClick spine or a 3:1 spiral.
The 1/4" binding wire would be a perfect size for binding monthly wall calendars.
It's also worth mentioning that you cannot turn off any of the punch positions. This is really only important if you need to punch pages smaller than 11 inches and are concerned with holes running over the edge of the paper.

It does the job, but it is time consuming to feed/punch 4-6 sheets at a time. I went with the 3:1 coil rather than the double-loop wire (which tend to rust in our climate), and the coils work just fine.

Great price and gets the job done. The machine only does one size though which is a bit of a bummer. Might look at upgrading sometime to one that does s more sizes.

We are really happy with the purchase of our new PaperMonster WB6 - it's perfect for our small business/binder needs and it's working great so far!

First off, I love the price. Second I wanted others to know that I was able to use the 4:1 plastic coils with this without any problems. 4:1 ratios are much cheaper than the 3:1 that this machine was made for. I just have to give the coils a little stretch before inserting them and I haven't had any problems. Also, these are square holes intended for the double metal wire but the typical plastic spirals worked great.
I was able to buy e-books at a much cheaper rate and still print and bind them to look nice. Also they lay so flat! I may cut some bindings off of school books and rebind them with this just for that benefit.
Loving this! Thanks MyBinding for your great prices and customer service

The Paper Monster is a great light duty binding machine. It only punches about 6 pages at a time and it only closes 1/4 inch double wire binding(which is about the size of the binding you might find on a standard wall calendar) so that is quite small but since the pitch is 3:1 you can purchase any size coil binding with the correct pitch. I have made several books with 1 inch coil binding. This is a great machine for light home use.
Welcome to MyBinding video. This is the PaperMonster WB6, a complete 3:1 pitch personal double-loop wire binding system. Built for the home or small office, you can do the whole thing right here. With your papers all in order and your wire bind selected up to one-quarter inch, release the lock on the top of the machine and lift the handle. You always want to start with scratch paper to set the side margin control knob to make sure that when you make your punch, everything is even on both ends. There’s also a measuring tool and guides to help you in your centering. And now you can begin with your covers. Push them face down or face up, just do everything throughout your project the same. Continue to punch through your entire project, punching up to six sheets of 20-pound paper in small batches. Once you’ve punched through all your pages, assemble your book in order, choose your wire, it’s time to bind. You can use the little fence on the face of the machine to drape your wires on the small needles pointed up. A trick in wire binding is to take the back page and flip it around to the front so it faces front to back. This way, the seam in the wire, when it’s closed, will be hidden inside your book. Thread all of the teeth with the holes in your project. Make sure they go all the way in. Then, with the “C”, the open “C” shape, push it into the back of the throat opening. This is the wire closer. This machine can handle up to a one-quarter inch wire, which is around 45 sheets of 20-pound paper. It’s that simple. Your book is bound and it looks great. All of the punched holes fall into a cavity in the base of the machine and it is emptied through this little window here. That’s it. That’s the PaperMonster WB6.
