Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a Fellowes PC 50 multiple hole punch which no longer cuts all the holes. It's a mechanical thing and should be easy enough. I have taken it apart and was surprised to see the the cutter is in a wave pattern and the holes that aren't cutting are in the areas where the wave is "shallowest." There doesn't seem to be anything to reset. Can you help? Many thanks! Shauna

It seems to be an alignment problem. Can you help?
    Many thanks!

Is waist collector on a bottom full, if yes empty it.
Second the sticks in cutter can be just stuck try to release them, you might need to put some greese on it, espetially in a place close to handle.
Trird you might need to use a sharpener to make the cutting edges more sharper, it might be a problem too. And finally some of them are designed only for certain amount of paper to cut, try to use less of it to check. Also suppose to be reverse mechanism (some kind of metal spiral thing to return the cutters back it might be jammed or damaged.
Good Luck

How do you fix hole in sheetrock


Little holes... Spackle. Holes the size of a door knob, go to a "big box store" they have a repair kit, that makes things easy. But if it is a larger hole you will need to cut a matching piece of sheetrock to fit. Then tape and spackle and sand and repaint. If the hole is larger enough but is not big enough to involve one of the studs, then the "big box store" has some clips that will hold a piece of sheetrock suspended between the good and bad portions of the wall.

I have an Ibico ibimaster 400e Binder which is not punching out the holes correctly.


First, clear the waste tray of all hole punchings under the machine, and check the holes where the punchings feed from for any blockages. The worst thing is the clear plastic pages you use for covers, these can block up the holes. So you may need to pick them out of the holes using tweezers.

Then try again. If you have to punch clear covers, then try to do them with just a few pages on both sides so that the plastic sheet isn't the first thing the blades hit.

I have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee and the heater is hot on the drive side and cold on the other side


Assuming you are going to replace the 99/04 Jeep Grand Cherokee blend doors yourself.
You would start by disconnecting the negative battery cable.
If you are going to remove the dashboard, etc to replace the blend doors.
some websites give you complete instructions with plenty of pictures.
It will take the average person with little or no auto repair skills approximately 12 to 16 hrs.
The vehicle will have to be taken to a shop that can recover the refrigerant before you start removing the dashboard and HVAC box..

If you are going to do the type of repair where you cut an access hole in the side of the HVAC box.

A short version of how the access hole repair is done.

Disconnect the Negative battery cable.

Lower the glove box

Remove the actuator motor - You will need a Phillips screw driver

Cut an access hole in the plastic HVAC box - Use a multi-purpose cutting bit, you will need a rotary type of cutting tool, like a Dremel, RotoZip, etc. Or you could do the cutting by hand with any type of small cutting tool, it will just take longer doing it by hand. Or some people have used a narrow pointed soldering iron!

Remove the broken blend doors

Install the new blend doors.

Replace the actuator motor.

Close the access hole - Replace the wall piece of plastic you cutout -Use foam tape or an aluminum tape to cover the groove made by cutting the wall.

Close the glove box.

It is almost as easy as what you just read, the hardest and the most time consuming thing to do is cut the access hole.
The job should take between 30 minutes to 1 ½ hours. Depending on how long it takes you to gather your tools, etc.

No longer shreds. Probably overloaded. Looking


The punching holes/not shredding problem is caused by a collar that encapsulates the cutter shaft ends. Vibration causes the collar to fall off and the shafts to spread apart. The fix is to pull the paper bin out, remove the 5 screws holding the top assy., and pull off the top. You'll see the collar and the screws will be somewhere in the paper. Replace the collar and tighten all the screws at each end of the shredder assy.

You need a leather hole punch. It's much like a paper hole punch, but with a different cutter. You can find them at craft stores.

Draper eyelet punch


There are two sizes of metal........use one of each to create the eyelet.

Thread the longer one over the stalk shaped side, and the shorter one on the other side........if the fabric is lightweight, the clamping motion should also cut the hole as it engages to create the eyelet...if it is too thick, you will need a hole punch to clear the way first.

The action is for the longer shaft to pass through the fabric, then the inside edge of the smaller one, then the edges are bent and rolled but the flanged die to finish and secure......try a few samples on scrap first.
