Scotch™ Advanced Thermal Laminator, 13", TL1302 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smoke Coming Out From My Laminator I bought my laminator last September 2021 before the school starts. It worked really well. It is really handy that I always bring it in school with me. But just last Friday, I brought it in my classroom. I turned it on but after a few minutes, I noticed a smoke coming out of the laminator. I then, pulled the plug and never used it again. I hope that you could help me with this concern. I am a PRE-K teacher and I really need a reliable laminator that I can use both at home and in my classroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good Got this for Christmas 2020. It said it came with the pockets but it did not. So had to go find those separately. Just getting around to using it didn't come with any directions. I assume you plug in turn on and wait for it to heat up and light to turn green. Well I did all that and nothing. It never heated up at all and the ready button never turned green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teacher Crush I love the my Scotch laminator. It is handy for laminating things at home and it is better quality than the school laminator even though it is not near as wide and takes longer. the pouches are really what I love, they are great for making wipe of activities. The dry erase markers are easily wiped off of. My only negative comment would be, why have a 13 inch laminator when there are no 13 inch pouches to be found Scotch brand or any other brand. It would be great to have a wider pouch. When you are a teacher or a parent you have to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Laminator Just bought this today. I plugged it in and selected the ml when it was warmed up I was able to get 1 thing laminated. It came out all wrinkled and the laminator started smoking. It was plugged in and on for maybe a total of 2 minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had high hopes! I bought this a couple weeks ago and it worked great...until it didn't. I laminated a couple dozen sheets, and put it aside for a few days. Plugged it it to laminate a few more pages and it will not heat up! UGH! The power light comes on and I am able to select the 3 or 5 mil setting but then...nothing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work straight out of the box I bought this just before Christmas to laminate my kids’ artwork. Took it out of box, plugged it in and it started smoking. Would heat up, but wouldn’t feed any sheets through the machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this product about two months ago as i have toddlers that i am homeschooling so was wanting to laminate flashcards and learning pages , long story short same thing as all these other bad reviews it started doing this weird clicking sound and putting "lines" in the lamination ...i have been very meticulous and careful nothing has ever been jammed in there .... in an attempt to decipher the clicking origin i pushed the release button for the first time ....cut my finger because the little plastic cover piece flipped off??? Now when i try to turn it on all the lights just blink and blink .... anyway pretty disappointed thoight id be able to get more use out of it than i did . Wish i wouldve read more reviews before buying lesson learned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for occasional use. Fine for occasional use, 1-5 laminations of letter/legal size paper in a session. This is NOT designed for heavy use (plastic gears) and should not be left on continuously for long periods of time (multiple successive hours). Substrates of 5mm or less can be fed through without issue but I would not use anything thicker as it reduces the meshing of the drive gears (clicking sound). Periodic cleaning of the rollers is a must due to the accumulation of dirt in general - disassemble with caution as it may void your warranty. Overall it is of good basic design for lite use as in instructional signs, point of sale signs, directional signs for use indoors or outdoors.
