The first few sheets (1) in a set are perforated with, say, three holes (2) and are held on a compiler tray ( 3 ) by means of locating pins (4) (Figure I). The next few sheets (5) have tongue-like strips (6) cut from thern in positions adjacent the holes (2). The strips (6) are then raised perpendicularly to the plane of the sheets as indicated by arrow (7).

STAPLE-LESS SET FASTENING (Cont'd)

Sets of sheets are laced or sewn together using paper tongues from some of the sheets in the set.

The first few sheets (1) in a set are perforated with, say, three holes (2) and are held on a compiler tray (3) by means of locating pins (4) (Figure I). The next few sheets (5) have tongue-like strips (6) cut from thern in positions adjacent the holes (2). The strips (6) are then raised perpendicularly to the plane of the sheets as indicated by arrow (7).

The remaining sheets (8) in the stack are provided with an extra perforation (9) by means of which they are threaded onto the strips (6) (Figure 2).

The strips (6) are then threaded back and forth through the holes (2) of all the sheets as indicated by arrows (101, so as to stitch the sheets together (Figure 3).
