Commercially available book binding machines, such as the Xerox-Cheshire Model 750 Binder, utilize a roll feed mechanism to automatically cut and feed a binding strip into the machine above a heated platen. The strip is provided with hot melt adhesive which when contacted by the hot platen melts and. secures the pages of the book being bound to the binding strip.

Individual binding strips 2 having hot melt adhesive 4 and a tear off extension 6 thereon may be provided for manual insertion into the machine, the extension being

provided to enable the operator to locate the binding strip in the machine while maintaining a safe distance between the hot platen and the operator~s hand.

Following the binding operation, the extension can be torn off at the provided perforations 8 to complete the binding operation through the use of individual strips. The roll feed mechansim may be eliminated thereby providing a less expensive machine.
