Okay who can give me the skinny on this machine?

If you have one...

How much do you use it?

Do you like it and why?

Can it be used to bind chipboard coasters together?

Would you buy it for $29.99?

For that little bit of money and considering it retails for about 80 bucks. It's a laminator, bookbinder and more. Just do a search online regarding it and at youtube.

Okie just buy the thing! Geez! I love mine. I have only used it as a laminator, but for that price, it is DEFINATLY worth it. I tried to bind a book once, and it wouldn't work because I had to many pages and too much embelishment, so as for binding chipboard and coasters, I would say no, but flat pages, it should work great. All I know is it is worth it's weight in gold as a laminator. And it's pretty too. (Sometimes I think Cecil uses it more than I do... quite a handy tool!)

I don't have one but I know that it won't bind the chipboard coasters like the ones I lifted at the restaurant. From what I've seen about the machine, it just applies a heat activated coating onto the edges of whatever you're binding. Like a note pad has at the top. Definitely not heavy enough for the coasters.

The laminator is supposed to be a real good one, though. I just can't think of much that I'd laminate, unless it would be something like an ID card.

How many gallons of stamp cleaner did you wind up making? LOL!

Well I talked myself out of it along with some information that has been gathered! Figure I can save the money to buy MORE PAPER! HA HA HA

I only made one little batch of cleaner but if others at the Swarm are interested I will make a bunch and take it for them to fill up their spray bottles.

Okie... you wouldn't have regretted it. I have used hot glue and made my own covers with it to bind thicker objects. YES, it can be done. I got mine in a bundle and it was an awesome addition. It's one of those things that you don't need every day but when you need it....

I got mine when I purchased the Expression ... the Your Story was part of the bundle & the price was so good that it was basically free. It is something I never would have bought for myself. I have only used it as a laminator so far. Maybe I'll attempt one of those little books but that isn't something I do.
