This hole punch cuts well through several sheets, but you have to set it on something to keep it from sliding around. We attached a sheet of a plastic grip material on the bottom & it works fine. I purchased this same punch several years ago, but the bottom was of a rubber material that did not slide.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The entire office used this hole punch everyday and it looks brand new. The center guide broke, which is an odd thing to have happen. A solid piece of metal snapped while releasing. It's inexpensive enough that we just replaced it. Great value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
