Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's have a look at the Wire200, a 3:1 pitch lightweight wire binding machine by DFG. It's simple, lightweight, easy to use, and a great little wire binding machine for the practical user.

First, adjust the side margin control so that all punches are consistent throughout your project. And you can assure that your punches will be right in the middle of the paper. Also, the slider on the right-hand side is a depth of margin control knob. This allows you to punch thinner or thicker margins depending upon the thickness of your book.

With your margins all set, it's time to punch your book. If you start face up, do the whole project face up. Let's begin with the covers by putting them all the way into the throat of the machine and pulling the lever down. Continue to punch through all the pages of your project in batches of 12 sheets or less. It can handle up to 12 sheets of 20lb paper in a single punch.

With everything punched, organize your book in order. A trick to wire binding is to take the back page and flip it over to face the front page. That way in the end the seam of your bind is hidden between the back cover and the back page of your book. This up and down measuring tool on the front of the machine will help you decide what size wire is best for your size project.

When you've selected your wire, you drape it over the wire holder on the front, small teeth facing up. Then, packet by packet, thread your project over the teeth of the wire. When the entire book is threaded on the wire, lift it gently up and off the machine. It's now time to close the wire. Two adjusting knobs on the back side of the machine adjust the wire closer. This way you can choose exactly how far the closer will close your size wire, not over- or under-closing. Place the open, or mouth side, of the wire face down into the closer and pull down that same lever. It closes it up and your work is all done. That's the Wire200 by DFG.

DFG Wire200 3-1 Pitch Wire Binding Machine Review

Do you need a well-designed, high-quality wire binding machine for light personal or office use? If you do, you simply must check out the Wire200 binding machine manufactured by the Digital Finishing Group (DFG). Although DFG isn’t as well-known as some of the binding industry bigwigs (such as GBC and Fellowes), they still produce some of the best binding machines available. Their Wire200 binding machine has some of the market’s most sought-after features an astonishingly reasonable price ($200.00). Check out what the Wire200 can do and prepare to be amazed.

When it comes to binding machines, disengageable dies are one of the features most binding enthusiasts seek out. Disengageble dies enable you to use a binding machine for documents of many different sizes, but they’re not often found in the lower-end machines. (In other words, the cheaper the machine, the less likely it is to have disenageable dies.) But the Wire200 has them. In fact, it has five, so not only can you punch and bind letter-sized documents, you can also create documents that are up to 21 inches long. The Wire200 also lets you control where your document’s holes go via a punch margin control, which can help make your booklet more durable. The punch margin control is another feature that’s usually only found on higher-end machines, so it’s pretty amazing that the Wire200 has it.

As for other features, the Wire200 has a 3:1 pitch (three square holes per inch) and with the wire closer, you can close a document up to 9/16″ thick. This is a fully manual machine (you won’t have to worry about running up your electric bill), and the machine is very lightweight so it can be moved around without difficulty. It’s also very easy to use. Even if you’ve never used a wire binding machine before, you’ll be able to do it confidently in no time at all with the Wire200.

The Wire200 does have a couple of flaws, the first being the machine’s construction. Most of the machine is made of metal, which is great, but the exterior is plastic, so it might not hold up very well. Also, if you need to bind thicker documents or the 12-page punching capacity seems too small for you, it would be better to choose a different machine. The Wire200 is meant for light use and it just isn’t a good choice if you need a more heavy-duty binding machine. Also, it only has a one-year warranty, so go easy with it unless you want to replace it at some point.

So, to recap, the Wire200 is a light-duty wire binding machine that would be an excellent choice for people who need an entry-level gadget with some advanced features. Although it has a small punching capacity and can only bind thinner documents, the Wire200’s disengageable dies and punch margin control make it stand out as an easy-to-use wire binding machine that’s way ahead of the rest of the pack. Besides, how many lower-priced machines can bind a document that’s 21 inches long? Not very many, that’s for sure.
