A cheap simple laminator. choose either 2x75(150) micron or 2x125 (250)micron pouches. I prefer the 250 pouches for a nice strong finished sheet. Simply set the heat switch according to which ever pouch you have and wait a few minutes while it warms up. A light tells you when it is at correct temp .
As you wait you can place your paper in your pouch. Do not use paper smaller than your pouches stated use eg A4 paper in an A4 pouch. Correct sizing leaves approx 3-4 mm of pouch around the edges of the paper. Paper free areas wider than this will warp in the machine or even melt. Do not put two sheets in one pouch only one full sheet. So it takes a few moments to correctly set the paper in the pouch. A pouch is two sheets joined at a crease along the top so fitting your paper neatly into the crease should help line things up correctly.
So if your laminator is now warmed up (the green ready light should be on) push the pouch neatly into the front slot of the machine. (there are paper size markers on the slot to assist you). Always put the crease (hinge ) part of the sheet into the rollers first to avoid air pockets or creases. The machines rollers will gentle grab the pouch and slowly wind it through, all you need do is watch. If you are not happy that the sheet is straight enough quickly press reverse to wind it out again for a second attempt. It takes approx 1 minute for the sheet to run through the machine.The finished sheet is hot so don't touch it as it comes out, let it rest on the little paper tray behind the machine for a little while. Leave the machine to cool for a while after use before moving it gets quite hot. The machine will also cold laminate, this needs special pouches, I have never tried these.
