WireMac-M 4-Star Expert Review


The WireMac-M is a great little workhorse for small offices that may only need to bind occasionally or in small batches. It is not appropriate for those who need to bind both tiny and extra thick books. If you need something larger, you can consider the big brother WireMac-EX, or if you need to bind the full range of sizes, consider the WireMac-Duo.

The WireMac-M has made our top-10 machines of the year yet again in 2019. This affordable machine gets the job done professionally and simply, without using power. Probably the best feature is that it offers completely disengageable punching pins. In a machine this size, typically only a few of the pins can be pulled. But what does this mean? Put simply, there is one punching pin for each hole, and the ability to stop it from punching specific holes of your choice means that you can do far more page sizes without worrying about a half-hole on the edge. The open-end combines with this to allow for double the punching throat for a binding edge, so you can actually punch for a 28” edge.

For the size, a 20 sheet punch capacity is also pretty impressive. While other machines might boast this, the truth is that those plastic machines can’t hold a candle to this strong, metal machine made with quality parts. Just remember, as with all machines, the punching capacity is the maximum; kind of like a cars maximum speed might be 180mph, that doesn’t mean that constantly driving it that fast is good for it. So remember to listen to the machine; if your pages are hard to punch, then do fewer.

As a manual binder, you will need to pull handles on the WireMac-M to both punch the pages and close the wire. This can be tiresome for some users, but it keeps the cost low. If you work with quantities that can wear down your staff, then consider an electric machine instead, as it will save you time in labor that could make up for the additional investment required. There are also a lot of setting to work with, which can be a positive in the way that it gives you more customization options, but it does mean that there is a bit of a learning curve to get the books just right. But honestly, all in all, this small wire binding machine packs such a powerful punch for the price point, that it is no wonder why it has consistently been our top-selling wire binder, year after year.

The WireMac-M is available in two different models; either a 3:1 or a 2:1 pitch. This means you have to choose which sizes of bindings you want the ability to use before you buy. The 31 model works with 3:1 pitch wires, so will handle sizes ¼” up to 9/16”. The 21 model works with 2:1 pitch wires, so it will handle the larger 5/8” to 1.25” twin loop wires.

If you need a strong binding machine for your occasional wire binding needs, then the WireMac-M is a great fit. As our best-selling wire binding machine, offering all of the features you need to customize your bind, while remaining fairly simple to use.

Frequent Asked Questions

What shape hole does this machine punch? I want square holes and not round ones.
Asked by Kate
The WireMac-M punches square holes.
Answer by Binding101
Does this machine have the capability to punch holes into hardcover book covers?
Asked by Anna
This will truly depend on the thickness of your hard cover boards. We have tested the WireMac-M on our Akiles Klassic hard covers and it works ok one-at-a-time, however, punching through hard boards with a machine of this level will wear down the machine much faster than normal, and could possibly cause damage. So if you are punching more than just a few pieces every now and again, we do not recommend this level of machine for hard covers -- we would recommend a heavy duty machine for higher volumes. Please call us at (866)537-2244 to discuss your individual needs so we can make a proper recommendation.
Answer by Binding101
Can the 2:1 machine be used for the 1 1/2” wires?
Asked by Anna
All wires 5/8" and larger are usually a 2:1 pitch, however, we stress the "usually" because some wires that size may be a special pitch. To confirm compatibility, you would really just need to know if the 1-1/2" wires you have feature the 2:1 pitch twin-loop spacing. If they do, they will be compatible. If they do not, then you would need to search for a machine that has the proper pitch spacing to go with your wires. If you need assistance finding the right machine for your wires, please call us at 866-537-2244
Answer by Binding101
Can the 2:1 pitch binder be adjusted to also be used with 3:1 binding?
Asked by Emily
Sorry, no. The WireMac-M is available in either a 3:1 or 2:1 pitch punching pattern; neither can be adjusted to handle the other.
