Tamerica TCC242 Durabind Comb Binding Machine Reviewed

Tamerica TCC242 Durabind Comb Binding MachineBook binding shouldn’t be reserved for binderies and large businesses. With so many affordable options now available, just about anyone can bind a book. We have customers that use their binding machines to bind cookbooks, presentations, genealogy, photo albums, books and more. If you need a reliable book binding machine, you may want to consider the Tamerica TCC242 Durabind comb binding machine (found here). This is my review.

Comb binding is still one of the most popular binding formats around. The machines are commonly available and the supplies are cheap. I especially like the fact that comb binding allows you to remove pages, add pages and re-use spines.

The Tamerica TCC242 is one of the most well rounded machines we carry. It can be used with all binding combs and is capable of punching paper, card stock, clear covers, poly covers and much more. It can even be used to bind books up to 14” long!

The TCC242 is literally made of metal, from the handle to the base. The hollow ground dies are capable of quickly punching through up to 15 sheets of standard 20# paper at a time. The TCC242 is designed to bind legal and letter size paper, but can easily bind smaller documents.

Due to the high-quality manufacturing process of the punching dies, the TCC242 should stay sharp and punching for years to come. If you look at the picture of this machine you’ll notice the extra-long handle. This handle makes punching effortless.

One feature I really like about the Tamerica TCC242 is the disengageable (selectable) dies. This feature allows you to determine and choose exactly where holes will be punched. Simply pull out the pin and that die is disabled. This cuts down on half-punched holes and makes the binding of smaller documents extremely easy.

Not only does the TCC242 feature selectable punching dies, but it also has an adjustable margin depth. This makes punching books of varying thicknesses easier and helps prevent pages from accidentally tearing out. The TCC242 can bind a book as thin as a couple of pages or as thick as 2″.

The TCC242 weighs in at 28 pounds shipped. This is light enough that it can be used on most tables, desks and other surfaces. It is easy to pick up and move around, yet has enough heft to let you know it means business.

I really like the Tamerica TCC242. It has been around for years and has a great track record with our customers. It is a great binding machine for use at home, in a school or at the office.
