Overview

If you need to punch 1-hole or 2-holes for stacks of sheets quickly, but on lower-volume level, then the FP-1B may be the right fit for you. This small-in-stature paper drill has a single bit that allows you to punch through up to a 1" stack of paper. This compact machine includes a detachable extended back gauge guide that can be set to punch the hole from 1/4" to 1 ½" from the edge of the page, and helps you align pages up to 15" wide. Easy to use, simply set the guide to the depth you want, tighten the knobs on the side to hold it in place, place your paper against the guide, press down on the clamp to hold your stack in place, and use both hands to pull the handle down in one smooth motion. As the hollow drill bit fills with paper chads, it will eject them through the top and into the removable waste bin. Attached to the front of the paper drill is a ribbon that can be used to hold the handle in the down-position for more compact storage. This paper drill is not recommended for laminated papers or materials.
For fast, efficient, lower-volume single hole punching through 1" thick stacks of paper, consider the FP-1B paper drill hole punch. Included with your purchase are two 1/4" drill bits (one installed), two punch pads (one installed), one detachable and adjustable extended guide, and one allen wrench. Additional drill bits and accessories are also available.

Description

The FP-1B paper drill single hole puncher is perfect for offices, schools, or anyone else who wants the convenience of a high-capacity paper punch, without the expense of an electric machine. Simple to set up and operate, anyone in your office will be able to quickly and conveniently punch holes through 1" thick stacks of paper. Compared to a standard manual hole puncher, this manual hole drilling machine will out-perform in every way, drastically increasing speed.

The FP-1B Filepecker hole punch is ideal for one and two-hole punching. It can accomplish three-hole punching as well (or any number of holes, really), but the back gauge guide and smaller table make those holes a bit more difficult to accomplish. It works great with uncoated paper stock of many kinds, but is not recommended by the manufacturer for laminated or coated papers. Watch our FP-1B video to learn more about the capabilities of this hole punching machine.

Included Accessories & Tools

  1. 1/4" drill bit (installed).
  2. 1/4" drill bit (stored in the waste bin at back of machine).
  3. Punch pad round (installed).
  4. Punch pad round (stored in the waste bin at back of machine).
  5. Adjustable and removable back gauge paper guide.
  6. Allen wrench for drill bit change (stored in the waste bin at the back of the machine)

How to Use the FP-1B Paper Drill Hole Punch

  1. Install the Back Gauge / Paper Guide - Loosen the knobs on the side of the machine and move the washers with the knob. Choose the depth you want for your holes, and align the metal back gauge to the guide printed on the base of the machine accordingly. Then tighten the knobs on the side of the machine to hold it in place.
  2. Set your Paper Size - Now choose where you want the holes to be on your paper, and set the back gauge paper guide accordingly.
  3. Prepare your Stack - Place your stack of paper against the back gauge. Make sure the stack is square. Press down on the paper clamp to hold the stack in place (note: without pressing the clamp, you risk breaking the bit, and the capacity will be drastically affected).
  4. Punch your Pages - Using both hands for leverage, pull down on the handle slowly in one smooth motion to punch all the way through the stack. Release the handle and press the tabs on the clamp to release it.

FP-1B Tips and Tricks for Success

  1. Always use the Clamp - If you forget to push down the clamp, you run the risk of not only breaking the drill bit, but also noticing a drastic difference in capacity and difficulty punching. These added stressors can also be dangerous for your users, so this is a very important step.
  2. Only Punch Uncoated Paper - This paper drill does great with uncoated paper stocks, but it is not the ideal choice for laminated or coated stocks. For those solutions, consider a different paper drill.
  3. 3- Hole Punching - The compact table width and back gauge guide do not allow for 3-hole punching without a little fiddling. We recommend first punching the center hole, then measuring out and marking your paper where the outside holes should go. Standard US 3-holes are 4-1/4" apart, center to center. Then remove the paper guides from the backgauge and visually align that mark with the drill bit. Once in place, push down the clamp and hold your paper steady. Since you only have one guide holding your stack, it can misalign fairly easily, so you want to carefully lay the stack down, or even place an item similar in height to the table itself (3/4") to hold the paper level with the table. Gently pull the handle to punch through the stack, making sure the pages remain in place. Then repeat for the third hole. Watch the video for a visual sample of this method.
  4. Storage - To create the most compact storage solution, remove the back gauge guide and pull down the handle, placing the attached ribbon around the handle to hold it in the down position. Place all accessories into the waste bin and twist the knobs on the side of the machine to hold the waste bin in place. We recommend you keep the original packaging to protect the machine from dust.

How to Change the Drill Bit

Whether taking the drill bit out to empty it completely of chads, or to replace a dull bit, or to simply the hole size, you can follow these steps. Please keep in mind that drill bits are incredibly sharp, so great care should be taken when handling.

  1. Remove the Installed Bit - Use the included allen wrench to loosen the installed drill bit from the front. Make sure your fingers are not below the bit, and grab the bit from the shaft so it does not drop. It will slide out easily once loosened. Lift it up through the clamp, and store properly.
  2. Install the New Bit - Just repeat the uninstall steps backwards. Place the bit, sharp end down, through the clamp and lift up into the slot. Once it stops, use the allen wrench to tighten the bit into place. Make sure the bit is installed securely.


* Always be careful when handling drill bits; they are very sharp. The manufacturer specifies maximum capacity is 1" thick, however, this vary depending on paper stock, book thickness, operator ability, and other factors.

Hi everyone! In this video we will walk you through how to use the FP-1B paper drill hole puncher.

This machine is ideal for users who want the ability to punch 1 and 2-holes through thick stacks of paper, but don’t have the volume requirement to warrant an electric paper drill.

First, let’s attached the back gauge paper guide.

1. Loosen the knobs on each side of the machine and push the washers outward, against the knobs.
2. Slide on the back gauge so the arms go over the screws.
3. Set the hole depth you would like by sliding it forward or back, using the paper guide on the top of the machine.
4. Once set to your hole depth, tighten the knobs to hold it in place.

Now let’s install the drill bit. If you just received your machine, the bit may already be installed, in which case, you should check the tightness, as it may have loosened in transit. Always be careful handling drill bits, as they are much sharper than they appear.

1. Step 1 - Place the drill bit with the sharp end down through the clamp, and then up into the bit holder.
2. Once it cannot go up any higher, use the included allen wrench (which you can find in the waste bin on the back of the machine) to tighten the bit in place. Make sure it is secured, but don’t overdo it on tightening, or you can strip the tools.

Now you want to be sure the punch pad is installed. Again, if you just purchased the Fp1B, it should already be installed. Just place the plastic round pad into the base below the drill bit, with the flat-side-up.

And now you’re ready to punch holes!

Set up the paper guide for your sheet size and hole location. This uses a centering guide, and has some common paper sizes pre-marked, as well as inch measurements. To move the side guides, just loosen the knobs, slide them into position, and tighten those knobs again. (note that the lip on the side guides should be facing inward).

Now place your stack up paper, up to about 1” thick, onto the table and up against the back guide. Confirm the positioning for your hole is accurate, and then press down on the paper clamp. NOTE: If you do not press the clamp down, you run the risk of breaking your drill bit, which can be dangerous for your user. It will also affect the punch capacity drastically.

Once the paper is in place and the clamp is down, you can use both hands to pull down on the handle, punching a hole through the stack. Sometimes it helps to have leverage when you are working with thicker stacks.

Now press the tabs on the clamp to release it, and remove your stack to reveal your punched paper.

If you need to punch more holes, repeat the steps necessary to align the pages, clamp the stack, and punch.

The FP-1B high capacity single hole puncher is ideal for 1 and 2-hole applications because of the small table and paper guide width. 3-hole punching is possible, it just requires more manual measuring and prep both before and during the punching process. W

FP-1B Drill 5-Star Expert Review

 

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.
