The “Millennium” or N-C 2000, is a new Bobbinless Portable Carpet Binder from N-C Carpet Binding & Equipment Corporation. The N-C 2000 binds approximately 22 feet per minute, versus 8 to 10 feet per minute for bobbin-type machines, the company says. It features a bobbinless chain-lock straight stitch; optional slip-on cove wall base attachment; twin pullers for positive feeding; one-button oiling of all critical components, and the ability to accommodate different size tapes and large spools of thread.
