Too thin. Intuitively, I thought I'd get better results
(fewer rips) by feeding the opposite edge into the gripper.
But more taint tore that way than when fed in hole-edge
first. And in the old days, I did repair pages using
the hole reinforcers (back before they were self-adhesive
and thinner than they are now), and the result is that
the manual takes up twise as much space in the binder.

No, I want to meet the genius who invented this binding
system. Like GBC but not GBC.

I also would like to find a connection for the yellow
construction-paper (not really but that's close) that
CDC used for the 70s era covers. Some mill in Minneapolis
must have a ton of it laying around...
