Here is just a quick little project that took me about say 10 min? All it does is help me bind books. it clamps dont the paper you want to bind with the spine up so you may apply glue to the spine to bind it tightly. The book that is in the jig is about 150pgs long and i used this exact jig to bind it. It holds together very good and its is very easy to use. I might have a video tutorial soon how to use it!

I’d like to see the video also. Little confused on how it works. Is it binded on the left side or in the middle and folded later?

Always wanted to learn binding. I already tool leather so it would be an ideal addition to my skill set.

i also woud like to see the video! haha. I understand what you are doing, but would like to know the glue type you use, and the steps to do it! I’m a college kid with TONS of papers I would like to bind in to a book. This would be very useful to me! Thanks a lot

Looks good. What type glue are you using? You can check around to see if you can find a graphic design supplier near you. They’ll have a special cement that is only used for this type of application. But, if what you’re using is working, keep going with it. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

I would have guessed Padding Compound. Hmmmmm. Like JJ says though, if it works for you, then don’t change.

Very neat. lookin forward to a video explaining how to bind, since I am a little confused as for where the spine is actually exposed for the glue.
