Tamerica (Tahsin) 210PB Comb Binding Machine Review

Tahsin 210-PB Comb Binding MachineAre you looking for a good all-round comb binding machine to use at home or in the office? If you need something that can comb bind booklets, reports and presentations, you may want to consider using the Tahsin 210PB comb binding machine (found here). I have used this comb binder and this is my review.

To begin with, the Tahsin 210PB (from Tamerica) is a lot of value for the dollar. I will go into more detail, but many of the features found in the 210PB typically cost a lot more. One nice thing that you may have already noticed is the fact that the 210PB is made out of metal rather than plastic. This is always a good thing.

The punching dies on the 210PB are designed to bind books using a 19-ring hole pattern. While it is primarily designed to bind 8 ½ x 11-inch books, it can be used to bind smaller books as well. It can safely punch up to 12 sheets of paper at a time and can bind books up to two-inches thick.

Selectable punching pins (disengaging dies) make it possible to punch and bind smaller books without those annoying half-punched holes. Simply pull out lever that activates the pin to disengage it. Most entry-level comb binding machines don’t have this feature. The Tahsin 210PB does, which is pretty cool.

The binding punch and the comb opener / closer are activated by using the same handle. This is done for convenience. Pull down on the handle to punch paper and push up on the handle to open combs.

Another nice feature about the punching die is that it features an adjustable margin depth. This means you can select how far into the paper the holes are punched. This is especially nice when binding books of different thicknesses. You typically want to punch farther into the paper the thicker the book is. This helps cut down on pages accidentally ripping out.

In conclusion I have to say that I really like this binding machine. It works really well, feels well built and is really nice for the money. It is easily comparable to the old metal-build Ibico machines and beats just about anything from GBC in the same price range.
