I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
With the FP-1B paper drill, you can accomplish manual hole punching through thick stacks of sheets without having to spend thousands of dollars on an electric machine. This unique unit is one of the only of its kind, so is great for offices and businesses who need to 1, 2, or 3-hole drill frequently, but not often enough to warrant the investment into an electric machine. The low price makes it easy to work into nearly any budget.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
This machine is one of the only of its kind, fitting into a specific niche of users. It makes high capacity hole punching possible without having to spend thousands. It is easy to setup and use, so any adult in your office can easily punch holes as-needed. Considering the fact that this is a manual machine, I was envisioning the punching being very difficult; but I was pleasantly surprised. Though it did take some effort for a full capacity stack, it was great to see that the base remained strong and didn’t lift with the leverage applied. Plus, when I made the stack only a small amount thinner (from 1” to a little over 3/4”) it became significantly easier.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
3-Hole Punching is possible with the machine, however, the paper guide and small table don’t make it a standard process. You just need to manually measure and mark the holes out from a center hole. Other than that, and the obvious fact that this is a manual machine and should not be used for frequent or high volume punching, this small paper drill is a pretty impressive unit.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
If you are tired of punching with a little hand puncher over and over again for your office, then the FP-1B may be the perfect solution to increase your capacity. It is ideally suited for single and 2-hole drilling, but can also handle 3-hole with a little extra effort. Affordably priced and easy to use, this high capacity hole puncher is a great fit for small offices of all kinds.
