Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we look at the DuoMac C31, a plastic comb and 3:1 wire binding machine by Akiles, one heavy duty system for both binding styles. This video demonstrates plastic comb binding on the C31. First step is to set your side margin control so that all punches are consistent throughout your entire project and all projects. The C31 also allows you to disengage any die pins you might need so there are no half punches. This way you can make your settings, set them, forget them, and run your entire project. Depending upon the thickness of your book or the size comb you're using, you may want to adjust the depth of punch control knob. This allows for thinner or thicker margins. When your scrap paper comes out the way you want it, begin with the covers, punching all the way through. And then on with the rest of the insides of your book, easily punching up to 20 sheets of 20lb paper per lift. With all your punches made, gather your book together, it's time to bind. Select the right size comb and load it onto the comb opener. In comb binding, always make sure the plastic teeth of the comb face up and the project faces down. That way it doesn't fall apart in use. With the comb opener lever on the left or the right hand side, open the teeth of the comb and thread your project over them. You can do this all at once with one book or in smaller batches for larger books. Make sure the teeth go all the way through all of the holes. It's that simple with the Akiles DuoMac C31.
