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.

Product Description

Simple to use for today's professional office, the Rhin-O-Tuff 3250CL turns loose pages into impressive looking documents in seconds. With just a touch of a button, quickly punch 25 sheets of 20# paper at a time, (or 2 sheets of clear covers). No more time-consuming and tiring manual punching; the 3250CL has been engineered to be trouble-free. The punching is done vertically instead of horizontally, (reducing punching errors) and is designed for office use. The motor doesn't run continuously while it is plugged in and thus, is extremely quiet to operate & saves energy. The roller also has an automatic shut off after about 25 seconds so no electricity is wasted.

The 3250CL features a 3 year limited warranty, which is the longest warranty available on the market today. The 44 hole punch aligns perfectly centered on your 11" or 8.5" binding edge. The modern design (stylish & compact) of the 3250CL was built to fit in with other office equipment, such as computers & printers. The 3250CL features a Paper Guide with a Document Sizer. If your book fits in the notch, it will fit in the tapered punching throat. The unique Spiral Binding coil sizer tells you what size coil you have. Just place coil on correct hub to identify that size. With an additional drawer, organizing your binding supplies & cutter crimper pliers has never been easier. 

While the tapered throat ensures that the machine cannot be overloaded, jamming is still possible. This is no longer a problem with the Automatic Jam-Stopper, which quickly reverses punching jams. Still jammed? Simply pull off the black cap on the right side of the machine and spin the notch to manually unjam the machine. 

The large chip drawer lets you punch more volume that before, so you don't have to empty your waste tray as often. The waste drawer also has the user instructions attached so you don't have to fumble with loose paper. When it's time to bind, the large and powerful coil roller quickly zips the Spiral Binding coil into place, ready for you to cut and crimp the coil ends with the included Hand Cutter Crimper Pliers. For binding thicker books, the built-in book former shapes and aligns punched sheets for easier coiling.

Hi! I am Mallory and I am the editor here at BUY101.

Rhin-O-Tuff 3250CL Spiral Binding Machine Review by Mallory Morsa


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.

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).

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.

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.

User Reviews

Simple & Good LookingReview by Karen
There isn't a whole lot to this binding punch, which is a good thing because it's so easy for the office staff to use it (just a button-press gets the job done). I like that it looks more like a printer or copier than a traditional binding machine, so it fits in well with our other office equipment. I recommend this product. (Posted on 4/1/16)
