Akiles AlphaBind-CM

Heavy-Duty Manual Comb Binding System (Item# AAB-CM)

Following the great success of our Akiles MegaBind (which has a 14" punch length for Legal size sheets), the new AlphaBind offers a 12" punch length and a more attractive cost. An ideal comb binding system for those who work mainly with Letter-size (8.5 x 11) sheets.
