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...

SOURCE: Are we able to get

This product is now manufactured by GBC (General Binding Corp, part of Acco) and was replaced by the CombBind C150 - just FYI. The lower-end machines such as this seem to run in the range of $200 USD.

I have never heard of sharpening these "blades", as they are actually punches, and there are likely some 20 small, individual "blades" that are part of the system. You might check with a local dealer or office supply partner, to see if they know of anyone who could or would perform the service and what they might charge for it. I believe that if you could find someone to do it, it would cost more than it would to simply replace the machine. There does not appear to be a way to replace the punch mechanism (die / strip usually) in these models.

An example of a machine with interchangeable dies is located at: http://www.factory-express.com/Binding_Machines/WireBindingMachines/GBC-TL2900/GBC-wirebind-TL2900.html.
Obviously, this is a much higher-level (expensive) machine than the one you have here. But this is an example of the interchange concept, and associated costs.

So, this is a rather long way of saying, and trying to explain why I recommend that, you check with a local dealer perhaps, but plan to replace the machine. If it lasted you this long, the same level of machine should last just as well, and $40 US a year isn't too bad!

If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

SOURCE: I have an Ibico ibimaster

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.

Sircle Corp SircleBind CI-1500e Electric Spiral Binding Machine Jam


Hi Karen,
I would strongly suggest you find a local service technician to help you with this problem as the only way to release the pages is to wind over the electric motor by hand. To gain access to the motor the safety panels will have to be removed. The motor should be able to be wound backwards to release the punches from the pages, this will ensure the punches are not damaged.
If you attempt this repair yourself please make sure the machine's power cord is completely unpluged from the wall socket, not just turn off.

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 =)

Ibico Binding Machine User Manual/Instructions


I found the IbiMaster 400 manual!!! The key was finding out that Ibico was sold to General Binding Corp. (GBC). I went to the GBC web site and it linked me to Acco. I called Acco and they promptly sent me an old, scanned PDF of the manual. The very helpful POC at Acco was:
