We purchased an electric hole punch with some resistence about ten years ago for my school. It has been wonderful. We have never had to replace one, only purchase new ones because others wanted one.
I never thought I would be pumped about a hole punch, but this one is great! I put bid packages together all day, and always wrestled with previous punches that would jam when punching too many pages, or glossy type brochures. Swingline redesigned this one so that the punches are directly linked to the handle and don't rely on springs to return them. When you pull up on the handle, you actually pull the punch heads back. If you can push it down and punch through, you can always pull it back, and it never jams. This is a great product and has reduced one frustration from my work day!
