Rated 5 out of 5 by HoustonTexan Great Binding Machine - Lightweight/Portable, Functional, & Attractive
The Fellowes Star+ 150 Manual Comb Binding Machine is wonderful! It’s great for personal use or a small office. Office uses include things such as sales brochures or internal manuals. Personal uses include things like school reports for your kids, recipe books, homemade photo booklets, etc. I have an old comb binding machine, made by a competitor of this manufacturer, and I much prefer this one. The old machine is not bad, but it is about 40 years old and is metal and VERY heavy. It still works but I’ve found the Fellowes Star+ 150 is the binding machine that I’ll use going forward. This machine is so lightweight that it is easy to carry with you to do your binding in the most convenient location for you. The main thing is to use it on a flat surface. The removable drawer, accessible from the right side of the base, catches the punched pieces for easy disposal. There is also another drawer in the base that can be used to hold a few the plastic combs. The plastic combs are available in several colors (e.g., red, black, white) and several sizes from 0.25” diameter (for 2-20 pages) up to 1.0625” (for 121-150 pages). The binding covers come in colors and clear plastic so you can use a color for the back of your booklet and a clear cover displaying your title page for the front cover. As a cost saver you can even use cardstock for the covers. You can punch up to 12 pages at a time and the black punch handle seems very sturdy. The unit is attractive and when the top and punch handle are in the closed position, the unit has a fairly small footprint. This is a great product and I did some price research and it’s very fairly priced for such a useful product and I highly recommend it for your comb binding needs. Note that all plastic combs and binding covers are sold separately from the actual binding machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZiggyDee A Quality Product
The photos I had seen of the Star+150 didn't do it justice at all. When the Star+150 arrived here at my home, I was surprised to see how nice it really looked and how well made it was. Not only is it a good looking piece of equipment, it also operates with ease and integrity. The Star+150 is both a pleasure to look at and to operate. Thanks Fellowes for the great product. You've got yourselves a satisfied and returning,,, consumer.
