The manual says to use the spacer bar to make up to 1" books

I use 1/2" diameter owires to make my letterbox logbooks and use the space bar you asked about. The space bar makes the holes punch closer to the edge of the page. It came with my blue Bind-it-All but is an option with the pink one. Hobby Lobby sells the Bind-it-All and I think they also sell the space bar.

Here's some info about the space bar:

http://www.binditall.com/SpaceBar.html The video doesn't work from the link on this page but the pictures explain how to install the space bar and show the difference in the distance from the edge of the page to the holes.

The hardest part for me to remember is how to insert the wires so the seam is in the back of the book. This helps:

Hi Wry,

No need to scan the manual, though I very much appreciate it. I actually came across a very helpful blog post from Campfire Lady that answered my question. I will try again tomorrow and report back to you all.

In case anyone is interested, Target has 3 x 5 index cards for sale this week for 50 cents a pack. I bought 8 so I will have plenty if I make mistakes.

Thanks to everyone! You are a great group of people!!

Patty

Thanks for the links, Scooter's Mom. I'm going to try using the space bar next time. Mine actually came with one so at least I know what it is for. I guess I need to go get out there and do it. I really got discouraged after a few crummy attempts, but I am determined not to quit.

Thanks again!

Patty
