SOURCE: Ibico Binding Machine User Manual/Instructions

There are roll pins in the cutters that can shear if too much force is applied when trying to raise the cutters if the cutters are jammed. The easiest way to clear a jam is to remove the waste tray, turn the binder over and use a piece of wood to hit the cutters back. Nothing needs to be taken apart. Once they are no longer jammed and a cutter does not retract when the handle is raised, you have sheared a roll pin. Replacing a roll pin is not that difficult, but you better take some pictures as you start taking things apart so that you remember how everything goes back together...

I need instructions for the new janome quilt binding set, I can't seem to find them anywhere. Leanne

As a garment sewer, I want to cut my binding on the bias, but I thought I should investigate the 'right; way. I loved this explanation from How to Make Quilt Binding by Janet Wickhell . She explains the pros and cons of cutting on the straight or lengthwise grain and the crosswise grain. Binding cut on the crosswise grain seems to be the best choice for wear and tear for reasons that totally make sense. Did you know that? If you do want to cut on the bias here's an excellent tutorial by Marjorie M Baker, M.S. Extension Associate for Clothing and Textiles, University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension. She gives you all the equations and calculations. Once you're done with marking and sewing your bias piece of fabric, use your serger, if you have one, without any thread, to cut continuously and fast, along the cutting lines!
The NEW Quilt Binder Set arrived for our New Horizon. We've had a few calls about the "Instructions Inside", but they couldn't find them. The back card of the Blister Pack, is actually a folded card and all the instructions are "In There".....It made me smile! Also some of you are curious as to which other machines in our Janome line up that it fits. The Janome Quilt Binder Set is compatible with the Memory Craft 6500P and 6600P and the Memory Craft 11000, all versions.
I'm not a seasoned quilter, as so many of you out there are, but I know how important, and how time consuming putting on your binding can be. Customers tell me, their quilts are left unfinished, because of the binding! After reading the 'instructions inside' very throughly, and experimenting a lot, the binder really does make this necessary last step quick, neat and easy. Our Janome Global site has a few tips and tricks for creating square corners. I wanted to see if I could make it do mitered. It is totally possible with a couple of pins and some practice.

Tips for starting the binding

Starting binding under presser foot
*Follow the basic instructions to attach the binder to your machine and inserting the binding and when you get to STEP 5 follow these instructions instead.
5. Sewing. Don't sew the beginning of the binding. quilt-binder-1.jpg?w=150&h=112

Inserting Quilt
Insert the edge of your quilt into the fold and drag the quilt through the fold to where you want to begin attaching the binding, usually away from a corner. Lower the presser foot and start sewing slowly.

This is how the quilt should be feeding into the binding
Trim the binding that did not get stitched at the beginning.
6. Making the Mitre. When you get to the first corner, sew the binding right to the edge of the fabric. Cut the threads. Gently pull the quilt out from under the presser foot and some binding out of the binder, approx 1 1/2′. Create a mitered corner on the front and back of the quilt, using 2 straight pins to hold them in place. Think about the pin placement as you will have to pull them out before you begin sewing. Gently insert the quilt back under the pressor foot and into the binder, while pulling up the slack of the binding at the tape guide end. Lower the presser foot and needle into the fabric. Note: Check the binding is folding properly as it is coming out of the binder, especially underneath.quilt-binder-3.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-4.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-4.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-5.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-6.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-7.jpg?w=150&h=112
quilt-binder-8.jpg?w=150&h=1127. Finishing. Continue sewing and attaching the binding and making your mitered corners. When you almost get to where you began, approx 2′ , stop sewing, cut threads and gently pull quilt and binding out from binder. Cut binding, leaving a 3′ length attached. Remove Quilt Binder from machine. Trim and fold under your raw edges. Insert your quilt back under the presser foot and stitch the remaining binding!

Ibico 080s

ACCO Brands Corporation owns General Binding Corporation (GBC). GBC offers products under numerous brands, including Ibico. Ibico's owner's address appears to be in Switzerland

From GBC's sparse Ibico's homepage:
"Contact Us

Where can you buy Ibico Products, fill in your information and the products that you are interested in and we will send you information on the nearest Ibico dealer. "

I'd suggest just going to that page (link here) and filling out the contact info and including the specific information about the model found on this page (namely the product ID num)

.... i could be way off... but it is all i could find on google =)
