Circa Leverage Punch
Packs Quite a Punch
The Circa Leverage Punch is well worth the price. I find it so handy to be able to write notes on whatever paper is handy at the time and later to punch and add them to the respective Circa note book.
I have one caution which comes from personal experience(a result of a bad decision on my part). Make sure you don't exceed the 15 page limit when punching multiple pages. Also be aware if the items you're punching are heavyweight paper stock. I foolishly tried to punch multiple pages containing some heavy card stock and got a couple of the dies(what actually punches each hole in the paper) stuck so they didn't retract when I released the lever. Nothing I tried, would free them so I got the brilliant idea(NOT!) to take the base off and push the offending dies back in position. This was an excellent solution until it came time to put the base back on. For those of you who haven't had the urge to take this punch apart to see what makes it tick.......Don't. There are a number of individual springs which once free of their confined area, will never return to their original location. I called Levenger and admitted my act of stupidity to see if the punch was repairable and much to my surprise(and great relief) they readily said they would replace it, free of charge. They wouldn't even allow me to return the "repaired" punch at my own expense! This indicates to me that this company truly understands customer satisfaction and just doesn't use the words as an advertising slogan.

This is a wonderful hole puncher, and would be perfect for any office or home office that is looking for a true professional look. This hole punch has a high functionality combined with ease of use. I would recommend this product to others. The only minor draw back is the price, but it is truly worth every penny.

Punch works well- nice clean chomp! So glad I can add my own pages, including cardstock.

Best punch ever for discs
I owned a different brand, then found out about Levenger. Ordered the leverage punch and re-punched all of my pages and now they turn on the discs like a dream!!! I can turn one page or a big chunk of the with ease. Love the ease of use too. Great quality. I am looking forward to years and years of use.

I really like the punch a lot. I am only disappointed because I thought maybe I could get a wire binder that would also work with it instead of just the disks and could make the punches farther apart. I make some small journals and sometimes would like less disks.

Worth the money
This punch give you the extra space to make and punch your own covers of thicker, more durable material, gives you options to punch more things to make your own Levenger originals, and allows you the chance to be as creative as you want to be. I recently developed tendonitis which can hurt when I push down. But this punch does NOT stress out my wrist as all. I was reluctant to spend the money. But, this is worth it.

I love this punch. It works very well and the punches it creates are very sharp and accurate, very much like the pre-punched Circa refills. I use it for the personal cook book I am maintaining which allows me to collect my favorite printed recipes and remove them easily when cooking. One thing to be careful though when you use the punch is not pinch your hand or fingers when you press the lever down.

The Circa Leverage Punch is an essential part of the overall Circa system. It allows me to add articles and documents to my notebooks easily, so I can get and stay organized very easily. Yes -- it's a bit of a brick, but it works perfectly each and every time.
I also bought the Travel punch to take with me when I travel.

The Circa Leverage Punch
Awesome punch.....the only thing that would make it better would be the ability to not punch all of the slots. I'm a teacher and purchased this punch to use for a variety of classroom applications including flashcards for students. I will only want two ore three circa discs to hold them together and I can make it work with this punch. I've seen on binding machines that schools often have a way to select which slots are punched and which ones aren't.
