I just used the Cinch to help Robyn's daughter make a father's day present. Here is what I thought!
* Ability to choose which holes to punch. Result=Like
* Threading station (that is what I am calling it) An area to place your wire and thread your paper onto the wire. Result= LIke.
I don't really feel like this helps make it easier or faster than just doing it by hand but still a nice little bonus feature.
* Straightness of punches when multi punching. Result= Dislike. I had a problem getting my punches to line up when I had to move my paper to punch again because of the length of my project. If my project had only been only 6 inches then my holes would have lined up just fine.
* Cinching the O wire. Result= Dislike. I followed the instructions to adjust for the size of my wire but I had few problems. 1st I could not get the machine to adjust. 2nd the machine only goes down to 3/4 inch and my wire was 1/2 inch. So between the two of those problems I could not get my o wire closed and I ended up having to use the Bind-it-all to finish the job.
I must put that I did not watch any tutorials or read any other instructions other than the ones on the machine itself.
I hope this helps anyone that it trying to decide between the two machines.
I will be sticking with my BInd-it-all, but am thankful for the chance that I had to use the Cinch.
