Heavy Duty Durawire Wire-O® Manual Wire Closer
With the Durawire closing machine you can cleanly close Wire-O® twin-loop binding spines of all sizes in both 3:1 and 2:1 pitches. The vertical closing design uses gravity to make the closing process easy, and has two adjustment knobs and a printed diameter scale for extremely precise adjustment opportunities so you can get a perfectly circular wire and a secure close. The printed binding guide on the front of the Durawire helps you select the proper wire size for your book thickness. Once your machine is set to the proper wire size for your application, place a test wire with the open side down in the closing channel and pull the handle all the way down; if your wire is circular and closed properly, then you can begin binding your books. If you are looking for a heavy duty, economically priced wire closing machine, then consider buying the Durawire Wire-O® manual wire closer online today.

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
The Durawire is an affordable, lower level wire closer that is ideal for users who already have a wire punch machine. Because it works for the full range of wire-o diameters, it is not limited to just a 3:1 or 2:1 user; all twin loop wires will work well, including also the 19-loop spiral-o style wires.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
Some wire machines have horizontal wire closers, but the Durawire is vertical; this is a big benefit because it uses gravity to keep the wire looped into your pages, so they don’t fall out as you prep the document for closing. You can just hold onto your stack of sheets with the wire hung on the opposite edge, and place that wire down onto the closing plate without worrying about the wire slipping out.
For a closing unit to offer a 1 year warranty is pretty impressive, showing that Tamerica really stands behind the durability of this machine. It is made of all-metal, so is built very sturdy. Because the handle spans the entire width of the machine, it is easy for both right- and left-handed users to work with, while also offering nice leverage for less strain on your user. There is a simple binding guide printed on the machine to help with selection, and operation is very simple, needing no special training so anyone in your office can easily use it.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
The wire size adjustment knobs on the Durawire are located in the back, which is an inconvenient location that means you may have to pull it forward each time you need to change the size; it would be better if they were on the side. You also want to keep in mind that this is a manual wire closer and, so it is really only suited for lower volumes of wire closing, as it can become tedious and tiring to bind a lot of books at a time.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
For the price, the Durawire is a great choice for smaller businesses. It is made with durability in mind, of all-metal parts, so will truly last. It may not be the easiest machine to adjust the sizes on, but that is fairly easily overlooked when you consider the price compared to other models out there. If you want something that offers a bit more functionality and features, without costing much more, take a look at the WBM532.
