Master Duo Heavy-Duty Hole Puncher

I never knew I needed one of these...  

I have several hole punchers and I use them for all kinds of projects.  But when I received this Master DUO Heavy-Duty Hold Puncher in the mail I was a bit perplexed!  How on earth could it punch 3 holes and also 2 holes???   Well it didnt take me long to find out!  Take a good look at it.  Doesnt it look kinda complicated?  Well it did to me but thank goodness even I could figure it out.   I must admit I did have a few issues that I had to work out.  I couldn't get the paper under where I needed it to go so that my paper could get punched.  Grrrr... I knew what the problem was...I just didn't know what I needed to do to fix the problem.  

The two-hole punch is in the LOCKED position!
Duh.... I realized that it was in the locked position.  If you look closely at the picture below there is a place where you ALIGN the paper...but there is also a a lock mechanism that needed to be unlocked which then allowed the paper to slide under the hole punch position.  Yip!  I figured it out all by myself. 

I have 23 students in my 1st grade classroom, so I wondered if I could hole-punch 23 sheets of paper all at one time.  It was kind of a tight squeeze, but I was able to get 25 sheets in there. I tried it in the 3 hole and also the 2 hole side.  It was relatively easy and they came out perfect!

I also was concerned about how I was going to be able to line up the papers and get the holes in the exact right spot.  There was an easy solution to that problem too.  On the two hole side there are the words "align here" which points at a line.  All you have to do is put your sides of the paper on these two lines.  Easy Peasy!  (Yikes...look at the dust that has accumulated on my hole punch)

I love it and I think you will too.  I'm excited that I now only need one hole puncher in my room now.
