Hello,

I am currently working on a puzzle project and I cut the first 5 puzzles. Then the cuts were lightly traced on the paper and I decided it was time for a new blade. I followed the diagram in the manual and made sure the blade was incorrectly.

This new blade is supposed to cut heavier material and it also just traces the puzzle on the paper.

What am I doing wrong?

Are you cutting your puzzle with just cardstock? If so you probably didnt need to change the blade,i've been using my same blade since January..that said have you checked the pressure?

The puzzles I am cutting are on postcard paper for printers. I have had the pressure at maximum and the blade at 6 and I have tried just about every combination you can think of. The thing that's getting to me was that it was working so well and then it sputtered to a stop. I still have 10 more puzzles to cut but I have the rest of the week to finish them.

Ok, yeah you shouldn't of had to change the blade for that..did you toss the other blade? Maybe it just needed to be cleaned off. Check again to be sure the blade is down, can't see any other reason why it wouldnt be cutting.

I am wondering if you accidently moved the little black arrow on the top of the blade housing. Try looking to see where the black arrow is in relation to the numbers. Try setting it to 3. 3 is kind of a medium setting - higher numbers move the blade farther down against the paper and lower numbers move it higher up. Also check your pressure settings and see if they have got bumped and moved. Try setting that higher. Hope some of this helps. Try the changes on scraps to save your good paper.

Also when you put the blade housing back in is the arrow facing the front of the machine?
