I am mechanically inclined and I still have difficulty with gaps in the instructions even with the written instructions it seems to assume that you already know certain things from experience ie #3 it shows the comb and spikes and where to put the comb and that's not enough information . I figured it out so I'm fine but what about people who are not mechanically inclined ? .Just fill in the gaps with more info, please !

Just spent over 1/2 an hour trying to bind 4 little 8.5" by 5.5" booklets with 25 pages. The handle for punching the holes feels like it is going to snap off in my hand and it keeps getting jammed. I flipped it over to see what was jamming it and noticed that over half of the hole punches do not extend all the way through the opening in the machine. The ones that seem to barely come through look like the openings are either off line or not big enough. Plus if I try to punch the clear covers 1 at a time it just seems to get chewed up. I owned a binding machine many years ago when they were made of actual metal and not all plastic parts. Wish I still had it!

Useless

By Mirasta

from Kansas, USA

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

I have been unable to get the binder to punch evenly. It consistently punches farther from the edge on the right side. I have checked to be sure there are no obstructions. I also was unable to get a cover sheet to go in far enough to punch. I was only trying to to punch one cover sheet at a time. In addition, the zipbinds would not stay connected. They kept popping open. Both Bindmate and ZipBinds are useless.

Handle broke

By Flowergirl

from Wyoming, USA

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

Will not punch through a plastic cover sheet, tried several times. Can barley punch through 5 sheets of paper much less 9. Handle broke on last try to punch the plastic cover. Used some pliers to finish the job. Save your money!

flimsy

By katianna2003

from Paris, TN 38242, USA

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

This binder has been problematic from day one. Can not bind more that 2-3 pages at a time. It often mangles the pages or won't release them. Blades seemed dull after very little use.

This machine is difficult to figure out how to use and it is manual.

By KAREN54

from Copperas Cove, TX, USA

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

I cannot get it to work on a regular basis. Two weeks ago I bound 25 books with no problem, last night I spent an hour inserting and reinserting one page at a time and it did not punch holes at all. I am considering returning it to the store and getting another brand. A manual machine should not be that difficult to use.

Not as good as I expect

By Burson77

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

It's working fine with paper. However, it doesn't work with clear and black plastic covers. I've wasted so many covers as they were stuck inside and ruined.

Disappointed

By LerouxC

from Saguenay, QC, Canada

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

We are really disappointed by our perforating " Bindmate " . Frequently we have to print again our documents because when we want to punch sheets (between 1 and 9), holes align themselves badly, especially of the right-hand side, even when we put a certain pressure at the level of sheets, what makes that we are constantly obliged to begin again. Unfortunately, we began to have a kind of white grease on some of our sheets.

This product is terrible

By Britt

from Edmonton,

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

I purchased this product to bind a few documents with plastic front and back covers. It punches paper fine but will NOT punch a single plastic cover. I've wasted so many covers trying to punch just one and they just keep getting stuck in the machine. I'm very frustrated and disappointed!

Punching is hit or miss

By monicajoi

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Swingline BindMate Binding Machine:

I purchased this product for lightweight binding projects(all paper). I had a very hard time punching more than three sheets of paper at a time. The machine lubricant began to get on pages after multiple attempts. I was disappointed because I had pretty low expectations to begin with.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
