I am new to bookbinding and partially sighted so I messaged the seller for some advice. The help I received was exceptional. I now have a perfect contrasting guide to help with making holes in my signatures. Highly recommend buying from this seller.

Great Tool, Iffy printing

I am so glad this tool exists and it will help me tremendously. I'm just a little disappointed that the numbers are printed so poorly. I suppose I'll just make my own marks instead.

This hole punching tool helps to prepare all of the signatures of a book you are working on in an identical manner. With the guidance of this cradle, the holes for sewing will be in the exact same location as relating to the top and bottom of the sheet or section.

This version of the tool has the numbers of the holes printed in a contrasting color of plastic (see the images.)
Punching tool Type A features the classic design of the cradle. For a chiseled version please check Type B of the tool.

220 mm tool with 10 mm spacing has 21 holes. 310 mm tool with 10 mm spacing has 30 holes. Please also check other options or make a customized order for other sizes and configurations.

The "Puzzle" versions of the tool are made in pieces that you'll have to assemble on your own (check the photo above):
400 mm, 500 mm, and 600 mm.
That allows to save on the shipping and keep the final price of the product lower.
If you want us to preassemble them, please make a customized order. The final price will be higher by approximately 20 euros.

The holes are numbered for ease of use and replication on different projects.

An awl isn't included.

If you want to get your items printed in some other color, that may be done for an additional 10 euro fee (if the color is available at our supplier).

You can always add tracking to your order for an additional fee.
Free tracking is available:
- for orders from the EU above 60 euros
- for orders from other parts of the world above 100 euros.

By default, items are printed in any random color available at the moment. If you want to choose a specific color, please write us a message. Colors currently available are listed in our FAQ section:
