I have a project to finish next week, where I will need to bind together some journals. I am thinking about purchasing one of the binding machines. I would usually do lots of research before buying a big tool, but I am a little short on time. Can you share the pros and cons between the Cinch and Bind-it-all machines?

I have both, due to finding a sale on both...and I prefer the Cinch. I have never used the BIA because the instructions/set-up seemed a little complicated, but the Cinch is very easy to understand and operate.

I have both. Still deciding which one I like the best. I have a problem with making decisions!

had both. liked the BIA until i got the Cinch.

the cinch-
-is more user friendly. ruler and guide printed right on the machine
-only needs one hand to punch unlike BIA where you have to punch with one hand and stead the machine with the other
-sturdier and steadier especially if you are punching chipboard or lots of pages at once
-does small to large prjects
-more ergonomic handle

BIA-
-smaller than Cinch
