I used to work in a library that did home binding in addition to sending some titles to the bindery.  In this library the vast majority of periodicals are stored in boxes (shelf files).  That way if one issue gets lost or walks away, the whole volume is not missing.  Of course, shelf reading is more complicated.

Our library is currently doing in-house binding of periodicals using the 810
Binding System from the Brodart Company in Williamsport, PA.  This system
has been used here for over 10 years.  Recently we found out from Brodart
that we'll no longer be able to purchase the system (drilling machine, parts
and supplies) after their inventory is gone.

My questions are:

1.      Is this binding system sold by any other library supply company?  If
so, please send me the names, addresses and/or telephone numbers of the
2.      If you use another binding system--what kind, how does it work and
where do you purchase the equipment and supplies?

I need this information as soon as possible.  Thank you in advance for any
help you can give me.

I'd be interested in the answers you get because we use this system and
this is the first I heard that Brodart was no longer going to carry it
or the parts.
