This is how I bind off when knitting on the knitting machine. I use waste yarn as a cast-on and as a cast-off, then I use that technique to finish both ends; that way they match perfectly. If the bind-off is tight, I can loosen the machine tension for that last row, but usually it's OK because I mostly finish with a "mock rib" and the bind-off tightens it up a bit.
