The 3250CL is a unique machine for Rhin-O-Tuff, designed in the USA with the same quality parts, but built specifically for the professional office environment, rather then their typical heavy duty print environment. Designed with simplicity in mind, this office coil binding machine is activated with just a push of a button, and was built to create perfect letter sized 8 ½" x 11" books. Electric punching and electric coil inserting reduces the hassle and pains associated with manual alternatives, and significantly speeds up production time. With the same durable components, this spiral binding machine can punch through up to 25 sheets of 20 lb. paper at a time, and can bind the full range of spiral binding coil sizes. Vertical punching enlists the help of gravity to ensure perfectly positioned holes. The punching and inserting functions are very quiet, so it fits perfectly into an office environment without disrupting staff.

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
The Rhin-O-Tuff 3250CL was manufactured specifically for offices with only basic coil binding needs, and I agree with their recommendation. This machine was made with simplicity and ease-of-use, offering power and precision with no complicated features or adjustments. This does limit users to only letter size paper, though, so if you need a bit more versatility, then consider the CoilMac-EPI or EPI Plus, which both have disengageable pins for multiple sheet sizes.
WHAT I LIKE:
The 3250CL coil binding machine is simple, simple, simple…which makes is incredibly easy to use! It is perfect for offices with multiple users, because there is very little or no training involved at all. And if you have read some of my other reviews, then you know just how much I love Rhin-O-Tuff (pronounced “Rhino Tough”) as a manufacturer of book binding machines…they are very high quality and made in the USA. They have also done a great job of making the 3250CL look great on the outside, with a clean and contemporary design that looks like it belongs in an office, rather than a work room. And Rhin-O-Tuff backs the longest warranty available on the market with a three year limited warranty (most machines only have 90 days to one year).
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
The price of this machine can be a bit off-putting when you compare it to other machines on the market, some even built for higher volume. But the most important thing to keep in mind about the 3250CL is its simplicity…it doesn’t have any complicated features, dials, or adjustments that could confuse users. Because of this simplicity, I did dock a couple of stars in the innovation field, however, that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a great choice for those who don’t want any complications, and just want a modest, easy-to-use coil binder. This ease that may be great for some users, really limits the machine uses for other kinds of users – it can only handle letter sized paper, measuring 8 ½” W x 11” H that will be bound on the long 11” edge. The finishing of your book also has to be done by hand using crimping pliers, which are included with the machine.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
With the durable and quality-made parts on the inside, and the clean look of the outside, and the fact that this machine is USA-made, I recommend the 3250CL from Rhin-O-Tuff as a great addition to any office with basic coil binding needs. I have never come across a machine that is easier to use than this, so I highly recommend the 3250CL for offices with multiple users, or even younger users.
