Intelli-bind IB150 Comb Binding MachineQuestion

I am interested in the Intelli-bind IB150 Comb Binding Machine (or something similar) and would like to know:

1. Approximately how many pages can be ‘punched’ before service is needed.
2. Approximately how many binders can be made before service is needed.
3. Can smaller ‘combs’ be used or is the machine limited to a certain size comb?

I plan on starting out with small booklets but want to be able to create larger booklets in the future. Thank you.

To be quite frank with you, we don’t know yet! The Intelli-Bind IB150 Comb Binding Machine is a brand new entry in the comb binding machine arena. We simply haven’t had ample time to determine the durability of the IB150. However, we can assure you that the initial models we’ve tested are definitely quality binding machines, especially considering the modest investment required. We also know that you can use any available diameter plastic binding comb with this machine.

Most comb binding machines around $50 typically endure a couple of years of heavy use. With proper care and light use, you can stretch out the lifetime of the machine a couple years more. The bottom line is, you will definitely save money with your comb binding operations with the Intelli-Bind IB150. This is simply the lowest-priced binding machine in its class.

The compact IB150 comb binding machine is portable, lightweight and easy to use. You can punch a stack of paper and then bind it using the built-in comb opener/closer. The sturdy handle makes it easy to punch. The IB150 even has an adjustable margin depth guide, not typically found in machines in this price range.
