SircleBind WB-110 Comb & Wire Binding Machine Review

SircleBind WB-110 Comb and Wire Binding MachineAre you on a budget and need an affordable book binding machine? Perhaps you can’t settle on one single binding format. If either of these situations apply to you, you may want to take a look at the SircleBind WB-110 comb and wire binding machine (found here). This is my review.

SircleBind (from Sircle) has only been around for a few years, but their machines have sent ripples through the binding industry. SircleBind machines are some of the most affordable today and are compared to the quality of GBC. Most of SircleBind’s machines are feature rich when compared to similarly priced machines.

The SircleBind WB-110 is both a comb and a wire-binding machine. It includes both a 3:1 pitch (three holes per inch) punch and a 19-ring comb punch. It also includes a wire closer and a comb opener. Essentially it has everything you need, start to finish, to bind a book in wire or comb. The only thing it doesn’t include is the supplies and the paper.

This machine is capable of punching through 12 sheets of standard 20# paper. This amount will decrease with card stock, but the WB-110 can still be used to punch card stock and clear covers. Multiple punches will be required to bind a book, but the process is pretty quick.

One thing I really like about the punches on the Wb-110 is the vertical punch. Most binding machines punch paper horizontally. The vertical punch makes it easier to punch paper evenly and keep the edges properly aligned. This is all done thanks to gravity.

One of the most unusual features in the WB-110 is the wire debinding feature. While comb is easy to open up, wire isn’t. The WB-110 has a wire opener that allows you to remove the wire binding element. While the re-opened wire can’t be re-used, this is a nice feature to have if you need to re-bind a book.

The WB-110 only weighs in at 18 pounds, so it is easy to move around and can easily be placed on just about any desk or table. This machine doesn’t look half-bad either. I think it looks pretty nice sitting on a desk.

Overall I consider the SircleBind WB-110 to be a great budget binding machine. Keep in mind that the SircleBind WB-110 is designed for low and entry-level binding. This means the WB-110 is perfect for home and small business use, but should not be used for large book binding production.
