MBM 55 2″ Paper Drill Review

MBM 55 Single Spindle 2" Paper DrillIf you punch holes in large volumes of paper on a daily basis, you may be in need of a paper drilling machine. Paper drills quickly drill through hundreds of sheets of paper in just seconds. If you would like to drill up to 2″ of paper at a time, you may want to consider a reputable machine like the MBM 55 2″ paper drill (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, MBM manufactures several different pieces of office automation equipment. This includes paper shredders, paper cutters, folding machines, paper drills and more. MBM products are some of the best quality machines manufactured today.

The MBM 55 paper drill is a single spindle 2″ paper drill. This means it can drill through 2″ of paper at a time, one hole at a time. While it is just a single spindle paper drill, it can still be used to easily do 2-hole and 3-hole paper drilling. This is all due thanks to a very clever design. At the time of writing this article, the MBM 55 is made in Tokyo, Japan.

The Model 55 paper drill has an easy-glide sliding platform that rolls on bearings. This gliding table allows the paper to slide left, to right, and back again. A dial, located on the right of the folding machine, makes it easy to select up to 5 different hole patterns. This includes margin depth and hole pattern distances.

If you select 3-hole paper drilling, the easy-glide sliding table will move and lock in place for the first hole. A handle, located on the easy-glide sliding table, has a button located on it. Once the first hole is drilled, the button can be pressed to release the easy-glide table. The platform then moves on to the 2nd hole and then the 3rd.

The drill on the MBM 55 is hollow. This allows the drilled hole particles to travel through the bit and into a chip receptacle located on the back of the machine. This receptacle will need to be changed every so often (as it fills up). The drill bit itself is very easy to remove. Simply use an included hexagon (Allen) wrench to loosen the drill chuck. Once loose, the bit can be removed or replaced. The MBM 55 comes with two different diameter drill bits (1/4″ and 5/16″).

The MBM 55 is extremely easy to use. The paper drill tray has self centering guides that keep the stack of paper properly aligned. A quick release clamping mechanism keeps paper held in place during the drilling process, ensuring accurate hole drilling every time.

Overall I really like the MBM 55 paper drilling machine. It is easy to set up, features MBM quality and build and is perfect for desktop paper drilling.
