Coil Binding Chart - revised

Oh, what a task this turned out to be! Little did I know what I was getting myself into. Here is a revision of the original coil chart that I posted. This chart is specifically for 2:1 pitch double O binding wire, the kind used in the Bind It All. The sheet capacity is approximate and is based on 20 lb bond paper. The total thickness includes the thickness of the pages as well as the covers--essentially this is the thickness of the materials to be bound, plus 1/8", if that's easier to remember.
I think this puts all of the info that I've gathered into its most useful form. I am now officially putting this topic aside, at least for now. :-)

To read my other posts about the Bind It All, including some tips on using 1/4" coils, just click on the Bind It All label below.


  1. You did a lot of work, Jay. I love that machine - wish I had one. One of these days. :D


  2. Thank you so much for all the work you've done! It truly makes it so much easier for me to figure out what I need (basically, everything!).
